  •  Totally agree with this, she is on TV (6+ / 0-)

    here in San Francisco almost hourly and has become nauseating.  Her earlier ads went something like: "We need to cut wasteful gov't spending, balance the State budget and improve education."  Really...I've heard these statements from politicos for over 50 years, nothing new coming from her.

        of $100 million---so far.  Pretty amazing, particularly when one considers the poor quality of Whitman's Ads.  They are not at the ridiculous level of Fiorina's "Devil Sheep" spots but IMHO Meg's commercials are not very effective.  I've gotta believe Jerry Brown will easily defeat her, although maybe he will be facing Poizner?
