Cheezburger Network to Whitman Camp: EPIC FAIL

By now you've probably seen the minute-long, lie-packed tirade our opposition has been bombarding the airwaves with. Turns out, the only actual fail in the purported 'legacy of failure' Meg's trying to portray comes from whichever of her interns decided to get a little too Photoshop-happy. Know the screenshot in the ad that shows Jerry's picture next to a FAIL stamp on Failblog? Totally fake. And the folks at Failblog parent company Cheezburger Network aren't too happy. Founder Ben Huh has demanded the Whitman folks craft, at the very least, a written apology. Huh has also stated the company will be talking to their attorneys. Less than three weeks past the primary, and Meg's team can already boast ten million in spending and a potential lawsuit. Off to a great start!

Just In! Great News From Reuters

Hot off the press: Reuters just released results from a poll showing Jerry ahead of eMeg 45 to 39 percentage points. Guess her barrage on the media is working to our advantage instead?

And so it begins...

Today marks my first day working full-time at the Jerry Brown for Governor campaign headquarters. After all this poor state has been through, I knew I wanted to help elect its next [Democratic] leader. So why Jerry?

  • I was initially intrigued after reading about his jaunts through Asia to learn Buddhism and the work he did with Mother Teresa. For someone who's spent a lifetime enmeshed in California politics, it's refreshing to see his open mind and wordly curiosity exemplified.
  • I don't buy the whole 'outsider needs to take on Sacramento' argument. With all the challenges California faces, I feel much more confident having someone in charge who knows how to navigate the labyrinth that is our capitol.
  • Jerry's progressive record as governor, Oakland mayor, and now attorney general closely aligns with my own political ideology.
  • I fear for California's future under Meg Whitman. Sure, the woman is a business shark, and you don't become a billionaire by being lazy, but she truly has no idea what she is doing when it comes to governing the ninth-largest economy in the world. Her nonexistent voting record and incessant flip-flopping on issues both prove she is merely a pawn to advance the Republican agenda.

So I've given up my comfortable life in San Francisco's Duboce Triangle to dive headfirst into the cause (and - eek! - the East Bay), and I won't resurface until Jerry emerges victorious. I'll be using this blog to chronicle campaign happenings and amusing tidbits until election day, so check back frequently, and feel free to comment just as much.

Mrs. Brown's Banana Bread

Just introduced myself at the campaign's weekly Monday morning meeting. Seems like a group of smart, interesting people; I'm excited to start working with them.

Jerry's wife, Anne, was kind enough to bring in some homemade banana bread. 'Although it isn't Jerry's mother's famous banana cake,' she told us as we passed it around the table, 'as Jerry reminded me over and over again last night.'

Sure enough, Jerry arrived at the office a few minutes later and saw us enjoying Anne's treat. 'Banana bread!' he boomed as he moseyed his way upstairs. 'Not as good as my mom's, of course, but it'll do.'

I'm quickly learning that Jerry himself will be a significant presence around the campaign office.
