We still like our coverage much better, but we couldn’t resist brining this image of girl-on-girl slobbering (courtesy of the New York Sun) to your attention.
Margaret Carlson, Washington editrix-at-large of The Week, slobbered like an infatuated school girl over Mrs. Fiorina during her lunch talk: “I thought the Washington press corps was tough! The financial press is even tougher!”

Evans interjects—“I’ve been involved in some takeovers myself; mostly on the receiving end.” I laugh and toss my hair over my shoulder—he knows what that means.
