A new hope

After Meg Whitman's brutalizing of her primary opponents - using her massive personal wealth to defame them - I suppose I can't be too shocked at her opening gambit in the general election.

But, you know, shit.  It's the Bush playbook, the same smirking playground insults, the same appeal to people's worst instincts.  All run through a huge PA system, at full volume, over and over. 

It won't matter - even if she wins she'll accomplish nothing.  Any Republican governor will have to find a way to cooperate with the Assembly - ask Arnold - and she has no experience or capability in any role where she can't be dictator.

And that job, Ms. Whitman, is not on offer.
