Jerry Brown’s Endorsement from Meg Whitman

[Thanks, Ezra Klein]

What’s doubly ironic about this is that it is a positive ad. And yet oh so devastating.

    What is the deal with the women GOP governor candidates and their crime propensity sons. Arizona’s Jan Brewer AKA Punky Brewster son (Ronald Brewer) is in jail for kidnapping and sexual assault and California’s Meg Whitman, AKA NutMeg son (Griffith Rutherford Harsh V) was accused of sexually assaulting a female classmate at Princeton University and arrested for breaking a woman’s ankle in California during a bar brawl, no jail time, sweet. I guess these two have Mommy issues.

    Nutmeg will lose as will Carly the tremendous failure of HP, don’t come crying to me if the GOP, keeps finding weak candidates, its like Mccain with the half-term Governor Palin all over again, what a joke that was, I mean comedian, talk show guest, commentator, now her new BS on the (of all places) The learning Channel, jack of all trades, master of none.

    June 14, 2010, The New York Times, Ebay paid out $200,000 because Nutmeg assaulted an employee, so it’s not the first time she has mistreated an employee.

    “The Whitman campaign issued a statement signed by Ms. Whitman that described Ms. Young Mi Kim as a “respected colleague and valuable asset to the company. In any high-pressure working environment, tensions can surface,” the statement said. ” Not quite a denial, what a fool she is.

    I must say one thing about Nutmeg is that she is a good parrot and the cracker she wants is CA:

    Who exactly pays for Ron Brewer to be in the State Insane? Jan Brewer wants all that stuff cut out, except like Miller in Alaska for her.

    The question is–how many illegal aliens are voting for Senator Barbara Boxer and Gubernatorial hopeful Jerry Brown? Jerry Brown! Meg Whitman? Good lord. Only Meg doesn’t owe huge favors to the powerful Trade Union, but Jerry will have to bow down to The teachers Union and rest. California–The Sanctuary State, is a poor excuse for secure citizen voting. Just as one example. Blatant voter fraud happened in 1996 Democrat Loretta Sanchez defeated long-term Republican incumbent Republican Bob Dornan in a bid for the House seat in California’s 46th congressional district. Dornan’s loss was the result of votes cast by non citizens for Sanchez. Guaranteed–that before this election has ended, there will be serious inquiries into fraudulent registration on behalf of Democratic-Lib extremists.

    Are you ready for another $2.6 Trillion dollar tax bill (Heritage Foundation analysts), to add to the growing 13 Trillion dollar US treasury Deficit? Then you just vote for any Democrat, who is going to stick that bill on you, your grandchildren–with another illegal alien AMNESTY.

    Dump Senator Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and all the Pro-Amnesty, Anti-Sovereignty Democrats and Liberal fringe, including Governors, Mayors, Police Chiefs and elected officers. GOOGLE–Voter Fraud; Illegal alien costs; illegal aliens and remember any kind of Path to Citizenship means access to your pensions and Social Security. Search the facts for yourself, because Huffington Press, Washington, Post, Los Angeles Times and the New York Times and the left wing open border fringe media, will spit on the truth and tell you a bunch of lies and propaganda.In conclusion–Keep an eye on absentee ballots and the polling stations, as illegal aliens were caught voting in Houston, Texas. You don’t think it cannot happen in your state? GUESS AGAIN.? Dems are posturing again to win vote with a high speed bullet train, with a $900 Million loan from Washington. Another question that needs to be asked? Is how many Contractors are going to be hiring illegal aliens to fill their pockets with large profits, while there is approximately 15 million citizen-workers without jobs.

    Francis, Before you embarass yourself further, you need a reality check. Try reading something other than conservative propaganda masquerading as “Think” tanks — “Un-think” Tanks is more like it!

    Francis, are you ok? Do you need an ambulance? Your syntax & punctuation are so screwed up that I think you may be having a stroke.

    But, in the unlikely event that you aren’t having a stroke, I’ll answer your first question re: “illegal aliens” voting for Sen. Boxer. None. They can’t get registered to vote, so no worries there. See, the world isn’t coming to an end. So settle down, pour a cup of tea, and see if you can’t think of something constructive to do. Foaming at the mouth about the people that get the work done in America ain’t constructive. Figure it out.

    Wow, just wow. Does someone pay people like Francis to write things like that? Or do they really believe this crap? I feel like I entered an Monty Python skit with that one.

    Francis, apparently you aren’t aquainted with Karl Rove, Richard Mellon Schaife (a cousin of mine) All the books after books after books about how the Republicans increase our treasury debt. Reagan and Baby Bush, etc. You can’t read just one book or listen to Rush or listen to Fox. Stay away from all slanted media, right or left.
    Study Andrew Mellon Secretary of the Treasurer going into the Great Depression. Whole book on him called MELLON by an Englishman so not slanted maybe. Find out how he allowed the banks to deregulate and allowed the economy to go to pot. Find out how Rove wants the wealth in the top 5% of our country and will do anything to get it there. Find out that the best time of this country was in the 1950s and 60s when Eisenhower was president and after. That is when the wealth was most evenly distributed. (20% in the hands of the top 5%, it is now 32%) Take a name “Susan Eisenhower” Eisenhower’s granddaughter. Follow these people.
    Stay on this page to find out how job loss is now decreasing. Find out how the loans to banks earned us 8.2% and many have been repaid (us being the government of we the people of the United States. Most people on this site are very independent thinkers.
    How Bush gave the people who earn over a million a year a $100,000 tax cut each of the ten years it has been in place. This was to stimulate job creation. It didn’t happen. The jobs got sent overseas.
    Think about what would happen if you take the health insurance benefit out of the work place. Now jobs can compete overseas. Now the price of goods goes down. Everything you buy, grocery store, etc. goes down. And the rich who pay in that extra $100,000 pay for the health insurance through the Republican 1973 health care plan that was passed last year by the Senate, now called ObamaCare.

    EBDOUG: what an elegant summary! That’s why I follow this site! On a possibly related subject. I just recently read an article on bullying that said the anonymity of the internet (ie: IDs instead of real names) allows us to exhibit our worst behaviors. It led me to wonder if our political discourse would change for the better if we had to admit who we really are to the “world”? Any thought on this, writers?

    Did you feel I was bullying? I hope not. I recommend to all of you Christian Science monitor. for balanced news and opinions.
    They feel that Obama is going in a better direction that FDR. That only the war saved us in the 1940s. They will also jump all over him if necessary.
    Oh, the current edition has an article on bullying. Really funny.
    On a totally unrelated subject: This article in the Washington Post was great: I’m Eva by the way

    Sorry, EBDOUG, did not mean to imply that you were bullying! I was reacting to Francis’ (and other much worse) hyperbole regarding politics. I’m struck by the fact that people seem to feel they can say the most outrageous things and not have to take responsibility for what they are inciting — now some Americans are down to beating people up at political meetings because they have different opinions. I know that it is sometimes necessary to have “public” personas in chat but am beginning to wonder if the practice causes more problems than it solves.

    Bullying is increasing in schools. Over half of students in a survey admitted to bullying. Of course, I’m going to blame it on the screaming of Fox News. If 70% of the population watches Fox News screaming, and bullying is increasing seems to me there is a connection.
    This is such a cute article:

    Great Article Ebdoug. I volunteer some of my time teaching anti-bullying in our public schools. The kids seem to respond to the uniform more then the person in it. I take some younger Soldiers most of the time to try and better identify with their age groups.

    Patricia – I love the underdone potato piece, LOL
