California gubernatorial candidate and average mom Meg Whitman has spent $140+ million of her own money to... still be trailing Jerry Brown a week before election day. And here, in her last commercial, she concedes that no one likes her.
Whitman, who was neck-and-neck with Brown until about a month ago, is now desperate. The most recent Los Angeles Times poll shows her trailing Brown by 13 percentage points. That is not a good number of points by which to be trailing.
So here's Whitman's last pitch, in which she levels with voters: "I know many of you see this election as an unhappy choice betwen a longtime politician with no plan for the future and a billionaire with no government experience."
When will she just straight-up pay for votes? Barrels of cash, parachuting from the sky, while she sobs in her helicopter. This is destined to be Meg Whitman's final act.
