Meg Whitman endorses her opponent, Jerry Brown, for Governor of California

Isn’t that the most brilliant thing ever?

And I’m not sure why, as she doesn’t look or sound anything like Edith Massey, but, after watching a few clips of Meg Whitman this evening, I found myself thinking of that great actress from Baltimore, and scouring the internet for film clips of her in action. I’m not sure what the trigger was. Maybe it had to do with the all the John Waters-esque drama around Whitman’s family, or maybe I could just imagine her like Queen Carlotta, the Massey character in Desperate Living, being carried around on a litter, shouting insults at ugly peasants. Whatever the reason, I’m glad that my mind made the connection. I just love the idea of Jerry Brown debating Edith Massey.

    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:

    Thanks for the links, Montana. That one with Arnold is great. And I realize it may not be completely fair to judge a woman by the kinds of kids she raises, but I look at these vile young men and I can’t help it. I read about her sons at Princeton and it just sickens me. I hope to god that Brown wins, for the sake of California.

    Now I can’t stop imagining Whitman in a soiled playpen, yelling about eggs. Thanks.

    It’s not too hard to figure out these boys…give somebody everything they want, never tell them “no” and keep getting them out of trouble their whole lives. Then, when they go away from home (college, their own place, etc), and they hear the word “no” or someone does something that doesn’t please them or someone tries to hold them accountable, they react with violence or by taking what they want anyway (rape). I’m sure there were other factors involved but that seems to be the formula with some privileged people (i.e. athletes).

    I can’t remember the family tree of Pink Flamingos. Was it Edith Massey’s grandson that fucked the chicken?

    Meg Whitman is a goddess, and you should be punished severely for even hinting that, without orthodonture and a girdle, she would be Edith Massey.

    Whitman would say that she could not ever have been Edith Massey, regardless of the circumstances she was born into. That’s how Republicans are. They don’t feel as though being born into a certain family at a certain time dictates to a great degree what you become. They feel that they would have been successful, even if they were born poor and black under Jim Crow. In reality we’ve got kids now that are dying in poverty that could have, if they had the right opportunities, been even better CEOs that her. That’s reality.

    Hey Mark, let’s do live election eve blogging of the results as they come in on Tuesday.

    As far as these GOP women go I think you are all being too kind. The reason these women raise such monsters is because they themselves are monsters. You can’t tell? What’s concealing it for you? Those cheap suits?
