The Carly campaign released this parody video in response to Carly Fiorina’s exclusion from tonite’s Republican debate leading up to the New Hampshire primary next week. Carly isn’t my favorite in the GOP race. But that doesn’t mean she should be excluded from the debate! For the record, Jim Gilmore was excluded as well. But let’s be honest, did you even know he was running? I didn’t think so.

According to ABC, here’s how they decided which 7 (of the 9) would be allowed on stage tonite:

1) placed among the top three finishers in the Iowa caucuses; OR

3) placed among the top six in an average of New Hampshire polls.

#2 and #3 seem a little ambiguous. Which polls, exactly? And how far back do those polls go?

Given the fact that the field has narrowed to 9, it’s hard to believe that ABC couldn’t make room for 2 more candidates.

At least Carly didn’t play the sexist card. I would have lost all respect for her after that. Here’s her campaign’s parody video…
