Right, better to elect the woman who made her money (not her title) outsourcing jobs to China. You know, the bad guys in that other ad you posted.

    No matter who you support or what party, that is a brilliantly funny video.

    Yes, it’s a funny ad. And yes, Boxer demonstrated her vanity and foolishness by insisting that she be addressed as “Senator.” Too bad that the Dems went for the incumbent in the primary.

    Here’s a funny ad against the Republican candidate for Illinois governor. I don’t know if it’s fair or not.

    I admit to being really torn. I’ve never voted for Boxer, and no way I’m going to start now. But I was too close to Fiorina’s trashing of Hewlett Packard to want to vote for her either. It’s taking “vote for the lesser evil” to a whole new level for me. If I thought a third party candidate had a chance, or if the election was clearly going for one or the other (as in Boxer’s past elections), I’d be OK just ignoring the top two candidates. But when it’s close like this….

    I doubt you or I voting Green, P&F, or whatever will make a difference. ;-) About as fun to choose between as the candidates for governor, IMO.

    By ourselves, no. But I suspect that we are not the only ones wrestling with the problem.

    As for Governor, Ms Whitman’s ads have finally managed to convince me that Jerry Brown would be the better choice. And that’s not something I would have expected at all at all 6 months ago.

  6. Randy said,

    “Back to the future” for you, eh? ;-) (Brown’s first term began 32 years ago.)

    And unfortunately for Whitman, I was around then and I remember. Brown was not a great governor IMO. But Whitman’s depiction of him is detatched from reality…and I’m not enthused about having someone that delusional (or ignorant, and unable to find someone who can provide the facts) as Governor. The state has enough problems without that.

    I doubt she’s any more delusional than Brown or the rest of us. It’s political advertising after all. Whitman is not unique. They all twist the facts to suit their purpose. Every last one of them. Hers apparently do resonate with you – the wrong way! *LOL* I solved that problem years ago: I don’t watch them. I doubt I’ve seen more than 2 or 3 ads I didn’t purposely choose to watch all season. Why do you bother watching them? (I’m genuinely curious, not being argumentative or dismissive of your complaint about her.)
