In her interview with Katie Couric from May, Carly Fiorina went on and on about how if you don’t have a room full of “diversity” when making an important decision, you will not get the decision right. For Fiorina, it’s all about hiring women (and of course anyone else who isn’t a straight white male), and she goes on at length insisting that a lack of diversity is, in and of itself, evidence of an absence of merit.
I had been inclined very favorably toward Fiorina, especially because of her ability to otherwise handle left-biased media encounters like this with supreme skill, until I saw the politically correct total b.s in this interview.
The remarks to which I refer begin at the 9:43 mark, and continue to 13:00.
Fiorina emphasizes, adamantly, that she believes that unless you have “true meritocracy,” you won’t have the diversity she advocates. Pu-leeze.
She’s completely stellar in the rest of the long interview, on other important topics. But I’m done with her.
