Year of the (expletive deleted)? Not in California!

Whatever you may think of Jerry Brown (I didn’t vote for him OR Meg Whitman), at least we have a Governor who knows how to pronounce “California”.  It’s not “Collie”-fornia (as der Gropeinator called it).  Nor, thank G_d, will it be “Carly”-fornia!

The good news is that every rich (expletive deleted by me) running for statewide office in California was soundly defeated!  It’s not that Brown, Boxer, and Lockyer are that great—they aren’t.  It’s just that their opponents are far worse!!!

To think that someone who did not vote for 28 years, who was up to her eyeballs in Goldman-Sachs (and other) misdeeds, who knowingly hired an illegal alien housekeeper, who did not have a clue about how to govern a state, could spend upwards of $150 million of her multi-billion fortune in a cynical attempt to con the voters and buy the Governorship, boggles the mind.

To think that someone who outsourced jobs to foreign countries, laid off upwards of 30,000 American workers, then padded her own pockets to the tune of $100,000,000, yet had the chutzpah to call herself the “jobs” candidate for the U.S. Senate, defies the imagination.

To think that someone who was rated the very worst California legislator by the California Consumer Federation, voting against consumer interests at almost every turn, would be a major party candidate for no less than  State Treasurer, is a sad commentary on our broken political system

But the really best news of all is that the efforts of two Texas BIG OIL giants to destroy California’s clean air and clean energy laws in order to maximize their own obscene profits went for naught as California voters overwhelmingly saw through and soundly defeated their Proposition 23 scam.

As Abe Lincoln so eloquently stated, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”.  Amen!
