Who the Hell is Jerry Brown?

   I went on a date last night that was going just fine until I made a comment about how I had been at Walmart today and a solicitor had asked me to sign a petition to recall Jerry Brown.

   I had looked at the guy with his cheap folding table and clip board and remarked,
   “Seriously, with Bob Filner still the Mayor of San Diego, maybe that is some one you should be concentrating on removing from office?” I was of course referring to the mayor of San Diego who, it has recently come to light, has sexually harassed agrip of women who work for him in the past few years.
   I was telling my date this story, and he looked at me clueless ( Damn he was cute when he looked at me like that. Why are the dumb ones so cute?) and said
   “Who is Jerry Brown?”
   Now I don’t have a problem, exactly, dating some one who does not vote exactly the way I do (Which is pretty damn conservatively) but seriously, this guy does not know who the governor of California is? It just blows me away that some one could be so removed from the government and what is going on in the world around them.
   So yeah, in my head I am thinking, okay, we are done here cutie, you can go now.
    Back to the petition being circulated at Walmart this morning,  I didn’t vote for Jerry Brown but  I think trying to recall him for  passing “The Dream Act” a bill that will help send illegal California residents to college is kind of a waste of time. I mean come on, it’s a bill that is helping kids get an education, and that, in the long run will help California.
   Californians voted Jerry Brown into office and now they are stuck with him; it’s a waste of time trying to recall him for something like this when in San Diego the mayor thinks it’s okay to ask woman to work with out underwear on. What is the bigger issue here?

    Um… stay classy San Diego?
    For a time I didn’t vote because I didn’t like any of the options – I didn’t want any of them to win; but even then I knew who the options were, I knew what was going on and how they would affect me. Since, I’ve learned to vote for the lesser of the evils… when I can tell who that is.

    A much-needed point to make. It’s really gross that a man can claim he didn’t have sexual harassment training as a defense for being a creepy, sexist, old man.

    Why are the cute ones so dumb? ROTFLOL!
    As for the San Diego mayor, is this for real? Am I being punked? In this day and age, I find it hard to believe he wouldn’t be out on his keester! (Did I spell that right? I don’t usually use the word “keester” but I felt like using it here. It’s a good word.) ;0)

    Is there something about voting skeevy molesters into office in CA? Damn. Arnie was bad enough, but now this guy. I’m clear across the country, so I had no idea who the governor of CA was. Then again, I’m not trying to go out with you, so I guess we’re square. 😉
