(Newser) – Carly Fiorina impressed many with her strong performance in the second GOP debate as she railed passionately against Planned Parenthood and outlined her hard-line views on foreign policy. But she showed off a lighter side last night during an appearance on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Fiorina, who has jumped to second place in several public opinion polls, ended her appearance on the show by sharing a song she'd made up about her lazy dog, Snickers, who'd prefer to sleep than take walks. "My name's Snick and you're going to have to carry me," she sang to the tune of "Rock Around the Clock," earning loud applause.

Fiorina talked about rising from a secretary to the CEO of Hewlett-Packard, where her tenure has been criticized. She also jabbed at Donald Trump, criticizing his willingness to meet with Vladimir Putin. "The two of them have a lot in common, actually," she said. Fiorina described Putin as "a formidable adversary" who could be "quite funny and charming." She also denounced rival Ben Carson's comments about not wanting a Muslim elected to the White House. "I think that's wrong," she said. "You know, it says in our Constitution that religion cannot be a test for office. It is also true that this country was founded on the principle that we judge each individual and that anyone of any faith is welcome here."
