A foolish consistency…

I know I shouldn’t expect much from candidates for statewide office in California, and I’ve picked on Meg Whitman before, but I can’t help myself.

Last night, in the GOP gubernatorial debate with Steve Poizner, Whitman, in the same breath, fellated the Tea Party movement, saying they were, at heart, “fiscal conservatives” who were just gosh-darned concerned about all this debt the federal and state governments are racking up, claimed that there was no one more fiscally conservative than she, and then criticized Poizner for opposing the Bush tax cuts, which only sucked $2+ trillion from the federal government’s coffers over the past decade.

OK, maybe I added gosh-darned.

Irony is  dead after all.
