Meg Whitman at the California Republican Party Spring Convention 2009
Fortune Magazine has a featured piece in its latest edition. Read it here.
Noteworthy: Whitman takes a backhand to California GOP Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger: “Being CEO of the state is not a popularity contest.”
Noteworthy from Jerry Brown (former California Governor nicknamed “Gov. Moonbeam”):
Brown displays a mix of ridicule and respect when he describes candidate Meg’s positioning this way: “‘I ran a business. I can buy my campaign. I have zero experience in government. I want to take on the most difficult state government job in America. Therefore, make me governor.’ That’s her campaign.”
Flap thinks Meg Whitman will have an uphill climb to the GOP nomination in June 2010.

Folk music legend Joan Baez performs at an anti-war protest camp near U.S. President George W. Bushâ€™s ranch in Crawford, Texas, August 21, 2005. Baez joined anti-war protesters near the ranch on Sunday to meet military families who want troops pulled out of Iraq.
AP: Joan Baez banned at Walter Reed hospital
Folk singer and anti-war activist Joan Baez says she doesn’t know why she was not allowed to perform for recovering soldiers recently at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as she planned.
n a letter to The Washington Post published Wednesday, she said rocker
John Mellencamp had asked her to perform with him last Friday and that she accepted his invitation.
“I have always been an advocate for nonviolence and I have stood as firmly against the Iraq war as I did the Vietnam War 40 years ago,” she wrote. “I realize now that I might have contributed to a better welcome home for those soldiers fresh from Vietnam. Maybe that’s why I didn’t hesitate to accept the invitation to sing for those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. In the end, four days before the concert, I was not ‘approved’ by the Army to take part. Strange irony.”
Baez, 66, told the Post in a telephone interview Tuesday that she was not told why she was left off the program by the Army. “There might have been one, there might have been 50 (soldiers) that thought I was a traitor,” she told the paper.
Tammy thinks that Baez is clueless because of all of the GANJA.
Flap thinks she is clueless because she is a LIBERAL MORON.
