    Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, and Sharron Angle all won their primary races last night and are going to make strong runs at their respective positions.

    Add in Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman and we have a very impressive of smart, savvy, female politicians on the roster and not one of them rode on their husbands coattail to get where they are

    Republicans: They're not just rich, white, male Country Club people anymore.

    It's more the rise of Business women. It's going to be interesting. Meg Whitman spent 80 million just to beat her Republican challenger....the commercials were unrelenting and quite nasty. That was a record amount for a primary victory. Wonder how much she will spend for the race itself. At least it will be money going into our economy.

    I find it hard to take serious the words of a person who probably voted for Barack Obama.

    In fact that's what I'm gonna' say to anyone who questions the qualifications of any of the Republican candidates:

    Them: "You're gonna' vote for WHO? What are you thinking"?
    Me: "What am thinking? Can't be worse than Barack Obama, THAT'S what I'm thinking!"

    Whitman ran the most negative campaign I can remember; and watching Fiorina I expect she too will go all negative against Boxer.

    Both women promise change, and suggest because they are outsiders they know best. Being hyper-partisan & arrogant suggests to me a basic misunderstanding of how one gets things done in a pluralistic system - and unless their ideas are more specific than support for the flag, apple pie and motherhood, as well as a disdain for taxes, they are doomed to irrelevance.

    Thinkiing voters want specifics, morons vote on their emotions; both woemn promise jobs, jobs, jobs, but suggest they will reduce the government workforce.
    Thinking people understand that if it is good policy to reduce the size of government, it must be done by attrition, not by waving a magic wand. More unemployed = greater stress on the entire economic system.
    Whitman suggests taxes are too high and hurt small business; the taxes and fees (which in fact do harm small business) are primarily local taxes and fees - something a governor has zero control over. Her campaign rhetoric would be laughable but for the fact their are more stupid people voting then thinkers (yes, that is a shout out to crusaderfrank, a person never to be confused with someone who thinks).
