The Lyrics

Yet another ultra-rich megalomaniac tries to buy a CA election and fails. Whitman blew nearly $150 MILLION of her own money yet couldn’t beat pauperish Jerry Brown. I’m not enamored of Brown, but when you consider the alternative to him (Meg Whitman) and Barbara Boxer (Carly Fiorina), case closed.
We’d seen your picture
On TV each night, mugging.
This ain’t your big debut
You and your team are through.
So, no more guile for the camera—
Your ass you’re now off lugging, Meg.

You were a big shot,
At eBay, but knew better
Voters. Blew piles of loot
And still you got the boot.
So, no more piles for the camera—
Winner’s someone who’s better.

Off you are packing; your
Can be off packing; your
Spending did appall—
You’ve had all of the money,
Though you paid lots, on you’re moving.

To be the big shot,
We needed someone better—
Of choices we had two;
One was less bad than you.
He has gone miles with the camera,*
Knows how to govern better.

Not enough backing you.
Now we’ll be lacking you,
Full of dough and gall. . .
You will be hauling, honey,
Far away, as on you’re moving.

*as in bicameral legislature

Brown's campaign spent about $60 million. It is unfortunate that the $200 million spent by the 2 campaigns was not used to pay down California's debt. It is also unfortunate that we Californians elected the candidate who will perpetuate the policies that have driven businesses out of the state while making state employees very happy.

You are correct that we had one choice for governor who was less bad than Meg - Dale Ogden - the Libertarian candidate. Unfortunately, he only got 1.5% of the vote.

Oh least N.O.W. has proclaimed that it's perfectly fine to call a woman a whore...if she doesn't agree with their politics! You be da man, JAB! ;D
