Also, Meg was in Glendale yesterday at a bakery where she was booed and told to "Go home"; looks like the Armenians also don't like her.
Oohh! Goody! Maybe Sarah Palin will come stump for her now!

Intrade has Whitman up to a 10% chance to win (from like a 6% chance a couple days ago). Clearly she is off her lows in terms of probability to win, but at the same time this is not a significant bump and she's still an outside chance to win.

There's a TV ad showing Palin's photo next to Fiorina to the utter terror of the Fiorina campaign; the only thing worse would be a photo of Cheney who, by the way, supports Whitman. Maybe Jerry Brown should remind Californians about some of the other skeletons in Whitman's closet of Republican horrors!

Maybe Brown and Cheney should go hunting together!

OMG! If she wins, we'll have to listen to her explain why she can't do any of the things she said she'd do! I can't take it anymore! I just want her to quit talking!

Hmmm...just like every politican. Remember politicians only lie when their lip are moving.

Younger Voters also tend not to vote.

Makes perfectly good sense to me. That way they can continue to blame their voting parents with everything gone wrong in their lives.

Yes, there is variance.

This year with the Democrat party so demoralized, increased Republican turnout and decreased Democrat turnout virtually brings the race to a tie. It could be close enough for a recount.

That would be interesting. Has there ever been a recount in California?
