Jerry Brown Not A Fan Of Women. Or, You Know, The Truth

October 29, 2010

My post at RedState:


Earlier this month, the National Organization For Women (N.O.W.) endorsed Jerry Brown for Governor of CA a mere 24 hours after an audio tape surfaced wherein Jerry Brown was heard agreeing with an aide that Meg Whitman should be called a “whore“. What’s a little sexism if it is aimed at a Republican woman! I mean, Jerry Brown is totally For The (Real) Women ™ , right? And The Children, of course.  Only, not so much.

The above linked screen shot of a newspaper article, via RedState, is back from when Jerry Brown was previously Governor of California. It refers to women “pestering” Jerry Brown, who was himself quoted as saying “Can’t you get the women off my back on child care?” So, the N.O.W. endorsed Jerry Brown thinks that pester-y Meg Whitman, daring to run against him, is a “whore”, mammograms are a luxury that need not be covered by insurance and child care issues are oh-so-tiresome. Get off his back, man! More accurately, get off his back, kids and broads!

Don’t bother him further by making him have any sort of actual plans for governing, either. He hates that too. According to Jerry Brown, you are supposed to just lie when running for Governor, and be clueless as Governor, as his appearance on CNN Late Edition in 1992 shows :

Interviewer: You said something a moment ago that I have to follow up on and I have to draw you out on. You said you don’t have to lie anymore now that you’re not a politician. What did you lie about when you were governor?

Jerry Brown: It’s all a lie. You’re pretending there’s a plan…

Interviewer: What did you lie about?

Jerry Brown: You run for office and the assumption is “Oh, I know what to do”. You don’t. I didn’t have a plan for California. Clinton doesn’t have a plan. Bush doesn’t have a plan.

Interviewer: You said you had a plan for California and you lied because you didn’t have a plan?

Jerry Brown: You say you’re going to lower taxes, you’re going to put people to work, you’re gonna improve the schools, you’re going to stop crime… crime is up, schools are worse, taxes are higher. I mean be real!

“Be real”. Plans, shmans! That’s too much effort, man. Get off his back. Jerry Brown hasn’t changed at all.

Jerry Brown admitted to totally lying when running for Governor. He admitted to having no clue of how to actually, you know, govern. He admitted to not even having any potential plans.

Jerry Brown doesn’t appear to know much of anything. Except, evidently, that women should either be off his back or on their backs.

    I would like to formally request that whoever is in charge of attack ads for Meg Whitman’s campaign step down immediately, and that you take the place of whoever that person is.

    I can’t believe Whitman is on the defensive about a phony “scandal” involving an illegal alien cobbling together fraudulent paperwork, and fooling her & her husband with it. Meanwhile, Jerry is on record saying nobody who runs for office has a plan, I mean be real! Maybe he can’t talk about anybody else, but he can sure talk about himself…and why’s he running for this office if he doesn’t have a plan, unless he just feels entitled to it because of his last name?

    Brown. Can’t believe what I’m seeing here. He doesn’t know me, and I don’t know him.

    Dear Lori,
    You should fire whoever ghost wrote that post for you.
    Clearly whoever wrote the pathetic plea for sympathy over an alleged off-the-record comment
    in which Brown called someone a “whore” hasn’t read the heading of your blog… in which you announce “I am a Twit Ho”. “Ho” is a shortened version of “whore.” Just FYI.

    And clearly this ignorant ghost writer doesn’t know how you feel about health insurance – government, stay out! Brown doesn’t want mammograms included in health insurance? Well that’s between me and my private health insurance provider!

    But my favorite part is the reference to an EIGHTEEN YEAR OLD CLIP. I mean come on, we already made it clear that talking about Bush, who was president less than two years ago, was off limits. And don’t even get me started on O’Donnell who was a witch back in the late 90’s – that’s ancient history. So, to dig a clip out from 1992, come on, that’s just a joke. Right? Please tell me this whole post is a joke. Just like your writer?

    yrs,
    nyca
