Queen Nutmeg Vs. Quaker Oats Dude
Some time ago I mentioned that Meg Whitman (alternately known as Queen Meg, or Nutmeg, among other names I really can't publish here) looked to me a heckuva lot like the Quaker Oats guy.
My friend Stacia has now proven the point. See?
She may think she's "rich enough to rule," but anybody with any sense knows her real agenda in running for governor of California. One, it's a stepping stone. She wants to be Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012. Two, as a corporate head who could not care less that she had ties to Goldman-Sachs and her own little investments that are now termed illegal, she wants to do four things in California: give tax breaks to big corporations; bust up unions and take away pensions from firefighters, police, teachers, and nurses; privatize education because that's a huge money-making opportunity and a great way to ensure business gets plenty of corporate drudges; and deregulate business as much as possible so that those pesky things like environmental regulations and such don't demand corporations to act ethically.
In short, she wants more power and more money for herself and her rich friends.
She doesn't care about California. She doesn't care about YOU.
Besides, who wants to look at that Ugly Nutmug for four years? Blech.
