image for Meg Whitman Creates a Job
After Whitman drops $71 million for nomination, overworked bartender/cashier works for tips.

SACRAMENTO, California - Meg Whitman, the fourth richest woman in California, bought the state's Republican nomination for governor yesterday.

Too bad she didn't get it on eBuy, because she might have gotten a better deal - Whitman reportedly spent $71 million out of her own pocket to secure the nomination.

The American business magnate could have used the money to create jobs for unemployed Californians, more than 2,000 jobs that pay $35,000 a year each.

Instead, the befuddled political newcomer, who had never voted until yesterday, realized far too late that she had blown the $71 million on a Republican nomination for the governor's seat, not the actual governorship.

In her defense, Whitman received a Master's degree in Business Administration from Harvard in 1979 just a few short years after George W. Bush set a high bar, earning his MBA at the same school.

Nevertheless, the gaff turned out not to be a total loss. Just to show Californians she means business when she says she wants to run California "a little bit more like a business," she hired an unemployed bartender/cashier to sell drinks at her victory party.
