Undaunted — actually, it seems, encouraged — by the mockery and attention that greeted their strange attack on Tom Campbell as an evil sheep, Carly Fiorina's Senate campaign is releasing an 8-minute Hindenburg of an attack on Barbara Boxer, whom the Republican nominee will face in November.

The ad, an over-the-top parody along the lines of attacks on President Barack Obama as a vacuous celebrity and of the Demon Sheep, depicts Boxer as a local figure who went to Washington and became "more and more bitterly partisan while she became shockingly less and less effective."

"Her elitist self-image grew so that it overwhelmed the Capitol and drifted west," says the video, depicting ducks swimming in the Potomac as a blimp in the shape of Boxer's head breaks through the Capitol dome and floats "westward to tell us all how to live our lives."

The sinister tone and airborne Boxer threat at times recall threatened terror attacks: After destroying the Capitol dome, Boxer looms over the Los Angeles skyline and says, "One of the very important national security threats we face right now is climate change."

"What?" asks the narrator.

Fiorina's camp sees the video, being released at the State Republican Convention in San Jose today, as a pivot away from her primary opponents and toward the general election, even as 30 percent of Republican primary voters remain undecided.
