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."
Then she explains that you should vote for the inexperienced billionaire anyway. On the good side, we get to see cute childhood photos of her little darlings!
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.
