Have you seen the latest commercial by Meg Whitman mudslinging Jerry Brown? I barely paid it much attention, but near the end, the voice-over dude mentioned that when Jerry Brown left office back in the 70s the average unemployment rate for the state was 9%…as though that was a bad thing!
Interestingly enough, I haven’t seen that commercial since the state released it’s latest unemployment numbers which puts the average unemployment rate around 12.3%, I don’t know about you, but that 9% number is looking pretty good to me right about now.
>Hmm. I saw that commercial again and I SWEAR they changed the 9% to 11%. Still…better than what we have now!
