Carly Fiorina is scratching and clawing for relevance now that she's plummeted back into ninth place or something in the polls, which might explain why she completely lost her shit with CNN host Chris Cuomo. When Cuomo pressed her on whether she wanted to retract her lies about Planned Parenthood, she ended up launching into the stratosphere.

Jeanine Pirro may have just met her match.

“Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado?” Cuomo asked. “Because of what the man said which seems as though he was influenced by some of the rhetoric coming out of you and others that painted a very ugly picture and unfair one about Planned Parenthood.”

“Oh, please. Really, Chris?” Fiorina replied, before again restating that the videos were not edited.

When Cuomo corrected her saying “Of course they were edited. Let’s be careful about what we’re saying,” Fiorina snapped.

“Oh let’s be careful about what we’re saying,” she said sarcastically as she narrowed her eyes. “Let’s be very careful about what we’re saying.”

After Cuomo pointed out that Planned Parenthood shooter Robert Lewis Dear was responding to the videos, Fiorina went off the rails, attacking the host as a journalist and saying no one in the “pro-life” movement celebrated the tragedy that claimed three lives.

But of course they did, just as Robert Dear feels smug reassurance that he's put an end to the "baby parts" controversy in Colorado Springs. The right thing for someone vying to lead this country would have been to tamp down the hostility, but instead she fed it right to the unwashed angry masses and she owns this just as much as David Daleiden does.

I guess Carly doesn't much care for the look of blood on her hands.
