Whitman Wins Minor-League Bobblehead Showdown

Okay, Meg, you can stop spamming our media with your commercials now. You’ve won. First the primary against super-wienie Steve Poizner and now a minor-league baseball game knickknack give away. That counts. Call off your constant commercials already!

AP reports:

SACRAMENTO, Calif.-Republican Meg Whitman can now claim another endorsement – fans of a Sacramento minor-league baseball team.

The Sacramento River Cats on Friday held their own kind of gubernatorial election – a bobblehead contest. The team gave away 2,500 bobbleheads in the likeness of Whitman and Democratic candidate Jerry Brown.

Team spokeswoman Rebecca Brutlag says the Whitman bobbleheads were snatched up first, making her the winner. The team did not count how many fewer Brown bobbleheads had been distributed when Whitman won.

And yes, in case you are curious, there are more Whitman dolls up for sale on Ebay (as of this posting nine) than Brown dolls (as of this posting six). Also, the Brown bobblehead is going for more money currently. That’s a switch.
