That would be former Hewlett-Packard chairwoman Carly Fiorina, Republican candidate for Barbara Boxer's senatorial seat in California, by calling "climate change" the "weather," that is, in the eyes of USA Today (and presumably ABC's Bill Blakemore). She uttered the unpardonable in this campaign ad, earning a "pants on fire" rating from Politifact as well:

Politifact:

First off, Boxer didn’t say she was worried about the weather. She said that climate change was “one of the very important national security issues” — a position in line with the Pentagon and the CIA.

Yeesh -- the way she treats the military, they'd better share her position on climate change!

Meanwhile those of us who understand subtlety and nuance -- usually not in the liberal bag o'tricks -- will catch Fiorina's underlying point that the fake issue of global warming, especially since Climategate, should be treated as trivially as the Left handles national security.
