Carly Fiorina wants all of us moochers to know she doesn't need to reveal her stinkin' tax plan before she's elected Queen of All the United States and commands Congress to do her bidding, so just shut the hell up about it already.

Speaking to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday, Fiorina said, "Anybody can write a plan. Anybody can put a plan on a website." But Carly, she's going to do one better than that. She's going to answer questions in public, verbally. Because apparently some people answer questions in public nonverbally, especially about tax plans.

If you go to her website, though, you can ask a question and she can post an answer to it on her website, which may or may not come from her because anybody can post an answer on a website and pretend it's from her.

Here is the reason why Carly doesn't need to tell you what her tax plan is. She's pulling information out of her ass and calling it a plan, right down to her well-worn bullshit about the "73,000-page tax code."

From the NBC transcript:

We need to go from a 73,000-page tax code, which is what we have today, with 4,000 changes since 2001, we need to get it down to about three. And what that means is we need to close every loophole and lower every rate.

Under intense questioning from Chuck Todd, Fiorina offered her plan: To magically reduce the number of non-existent pages down to the real number of pages and then down to three whole pages which she just cannot post on a website.

So in other words, words on a piece of paper are more accountable than words said to people, looking them in the eye? I don't think so. I don't think that's what voters think. Because I think voters have gotten smart enough to know that plans and paper, 50-point plans, ten-point plans, five-point plans, are written by a bunch of advisors and consultants. So I'm perfectly prepared to be held accountable for my words and my plans. And I would encourage your viewers to go on the website and ask any question they want.

Because of course Carly's advisors and consultants have nothing to do with any answers she may or may not be posting on her website, right? After all, anyone can post something on a website.
