Give Carly Fiorina’s Senate campaign credit for chutzpah, at least.
The candidate for the GOP nomination in California sent out a Passover message early Tuesday to supporters, trying to show Jewish voters she cares. “Passover is a time of remembrance and thanks,” the message started. After a few sentences, it got to this one: “This week, as we break bread and spend time with our families and friends, I hope we also take a moment to say a word of thanks for our freedom and for those who have given their lives in freedom’s name.”
Of course, the one thing you don’t do to celebrate Passover is break bread. Gleeful Democrats e-mailed around links to press reports in California and elsewhere mocking Fiorina. “It’s matza, darling,” the San Francisco Chronicle said.
So Fiorina’s campaign tried to undo the damage. “We meant all bread, leavened and unleavened, and matzoh is just unleavened bread so that’s what we meant by that,” a spokeswoman told the Sacramento Bee.
As political spin went, it was pretty weak. But at least this time, there were no demon sheep involved. Pass the gefilte fish, will you, Carly?

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
