Sanity Prevails in California

Maybe she can get a job as a housekeeper now. A hundred and forty million for this?
Peace and best wishes to Jerry and Barbara. I got nothing to say about Fiorina.

I was talking to my real mom last night and we decided that if she had really wanted to help the state, she could have just given the money to the state. Just think of all the jobs and services the state could have provided with that money.

At least we didn't vote for another Repug but I can't say the same for the rest of the country. Heavens knows what a mess two more years of gridlock will produce.

Kailyn: I wouldn't even have minded if she spent it on a couple of new villas in Spain. How dare she think the election comes with a "Buy It Now" button?

Nancy: I'm oddly hopeful. I spent a very sickened eight years a while back, and I'm not feeling such despair today.

being an Aussie- had to check her out on Wiki. Anyone who doesn't take their democratic responsibility seriously for that long and then tries to use their wealth to gain power deserves quite a fair share of contempt. We have compulsory voting here and a well supported system to do it. Takes some of the shambles out of the game.

I like Kailyn's idea of Meg Whitman giving her money to the state. yeah!

Someone pointed out to me that she looks like the Quaker Oats guy. Weird but true, and would be mean if she weren't such a rat.

Zoomie said...

She'll need to clean her own house now. How will she ever find anyone to do it for her, having summarily fired the woman who worked for her for nine years. Didn't even offer to sponsor her for citizenship? I'm relieved that this cold woman was no elected despite her millions.

Kelly: I'm impressed you went and looked Whitman up. We really resented the idea that she thought she could just waltz in with her fortune. What's really wacky is that Jerry Brown, the guy who defeated her, was governor of CA once before, years ago. Sweet.
Compulsory voting? I did not know.

Dog: She would never give her money to the state, and you know it! :D

Zoomie: You're right. Or maybe she's making her husband do the vacuuming while she sulks in her room.

She looks like George Washington a bit. ;)

I am soooo happy to be living in California right now! Sanity prevails here, no doubt!

did you see the cartoon today showing her all upset screaming at the computer screen: "But... but... I was the highest bidder! How come I did not win"?

Priceless.....

Peter said...

Just think of it as her bold effort to create her own, privatized stimulus for all those TV stations and bumper sticker printers. And who among us does not enjoy having our package stimulated?

cookiecrumb said...

Greg: You mean the wooden teeth?

Sally: I didn't see the cartoon, but Katie Couric blurted on the news last week that she was surprised the big spender wasn't ahead in the polls. That's not the way it works!

Peter: Almost makes me wish I had one.

What Kelly said.
Cookie, don't you remember, I'm always grumbling about the 3minute walk to vote :)
I too had to look her up, ick.

I heard it was 160M, pretty insane with all the people who can't even feed their kids proper meals, even in California.
