New Brown Ad Nails Whitman for Being Like Schwarzenegger

We would have said the concept for this ad was wrong. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has not endorsed Meg Whitman. He has been very critical of her “plans” or lack there of. He urged journalists at the LA Press Club Awards this year to ask the tough questions of her. He’s no Whitman fan. He called some of her ideas “bogus.” So if he was to endorse someone to be the next governor of California – by default it would most likely have been Jerry Brown. However, this minute clip of Whitman parroting Schwarzenegger platitudes is pretty stinging…we’re guessing for Schwarzenegger.

But now that we think of it – Whitman does remind us of a Dana Carvey character, who famously spoofed Schwarzenegger as Hans and Franz. “Girlie men?” He’s the missing link! We’ve found it!
