Carly & Meg, In Every Important Way, Are Dianne & Barbara

Meg Whitman, who hit “buy it now” on the most expensive GOP primary campaign for the unwanted job of Governor of California, is much like Carly Fiorina, who cut the market value of Hewlett Packard by a remarkable 60% during her dismal reign as CEO of that company before spending millions of her own fortune to win the GOP primary for a California Senate seat. But both Republicans are, in the most important ways, exactly the same as Democratic Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, who both won their historic races in 1992, and are liberal Democrats instead of flimsy Republicans momentarily disguised as hard-right anti-Mexican dingbats.

Liveblogging the West Coast Ladies Night & Good-Bye To Jim Gibbons

Polls are closed everywhere! We see the light at the end of the tunnel. (It is called “tomorrow morning.”) But we’ve already got some very happy news to report: Pig-eyed drunken would-be rapist and serial crook Jim Gibbons has lost the governorship of Nevada! Not that anyone will really notice; he never actually showed up for work, in Nevada. Too busy knocking down cocktail waitresses and getting divorced and “buying tomatoes” while those annoying voters asked him to cut taxes and send their welfare checks. Good-bye Jim! Hope you have a heart attack on the toilet soon! Read more on Liveblogging the West Coast Ladies Night & Good-Bye To Jim Gibbons…

Meg ‘eBay’ Whitman Loses 50-Point Lead, Would Not Do Business With Again

For unknown reasons, former tech executive Meg Whitman decided she wanted to be the Republican candidate for governor, in California. Whitman has already spent $68 million of her fortune on this campaign, and now her 50-point lead in the polls is down to 9 percent. That is a pretty terrible return on her investment!

ATTACK AD: Meg Whitman Ran eBay, And eBay Had Porn

This one’s kind of a STRETCH — meaning, “effective.” California Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner is attacking his primary opponent Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay, for having all sorts of porn available on the eBay while she was running it. Poizner’s ad even shows an insecure teenager about to jerk off to Meg Whitman’s eBay.com, the #1 pornography site on the Internet. “Meg Whitman started a separate division that only sells porn.” WHAT A MONSTER! Go back to mixing it in with children’s books and gardening supplies! [Ben Smith] Read more on ATTACK AD: Meg Whitman Ran eBay, And eBay Had Porn…

There Is Nothing That Carly Fiorina Hated More In The 90s Than Voting

Carly Fiorina is notable for exactly one thing: like three weeks ago, she became famous for having the Internet’s worst website. She thought it would be enough, you see, to let people know that the worlds “Carly Fiorina” sort of sound like “California,” and this is how she expected to defeat Barbara Boxer for her Senate seat. Just by pointing out this one thing. But now there’s a new Carly Fiorina thing! Specifically Fiorina, like eBay lady/gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, doesn’t care for voting, just simply does not care for it.

Meg Whitman To Save California

Here’s former eBay CEO (and make-believe founder) Meg Whitman, the less terrible of John McCain’s two campaign CEO Henchwomen, announcing her run for California governor in 2010, on the YouTube! Ha she is so rich — she BOUGHT PRINCETON or something recently — so maybe she will win. But the choice of what appears to be a tank top — probably made of something expensive, of course… enriched uranium? — just reeks of New Money. Hey Meg, if you love the Internet so much, why don’t you go buy some sleeves. From a retail website. Yeah.

John McCain Lies About eBay, Too

John McCain, that poor little rich boy, was born in an Admiral’s Castle in the 16th Century, so of course he knows nothing about the Internets, which is why he often repeats some weird depressing thing about how millions of Americans are desperately selling off their meager consumer belongings on eBay, as if there’s something dignified about auctioning off your beanie-baby collection to make rent. Oh, and did you know his wonderful campaign business-lady Secretary of McCain Commerce founded eBay all by herself? That is also a lie. Read more on John McCain Lies About eBay, Too…
