Best Ad of the Campaign (So Far): "Look at This Face"

Amanda Terkel writes at The Huffington Post:
The super PAC backing Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is out with a new ad responding to Donald Trump's pejorative comments about her appearance.
The ad, paid for by the Carly for America Committee, features a series of faces of women and girls. In the background, Fiorina is heard saying, "Ladies, look at this face, and look at all of your faces -- the face of leadership."
That remark, which Fiorina made on Friday to the Federation of Republican Women in Arizona, plays off recent comments by Trump, one of Fiorina's rivals for the GOP presidential nomination. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Trump remarked on the appearance of the only female candidate in the Republican field.
"Look at that face!" the reality TV host said. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!"


It's an excellent ad for someone who can take the battle to Trump -- but Fiorina is still a badly flawed candidate.
