Formerly affectionately known by Californians as Governor Moonbeam, Jerry Brown has finally outgrown that wacky image, but in doing so, he may have gained more notoriety by gaining a new nickname, "The Ho Whisperer."
In the chronology of famous whisperers, there was first "The Horse Whisperer", Tom Booker, a Montana cowboy with the ability to communicate with horses. Then came the "Dog Whisperer", Cesar Millan, who does rehab projects on dogs. Now with Jerry Brown, who in a moonbeam moment, thinking his phone was dead, was overheard calling Meg Whitman a "Ho"; this in a raspy voice of whisperer quality.
So now, in the growing Pantheon of whisperers, we have Jerry Brown. Although not claiming to be able to rehabilitate Ho's while whispering in their ears, one wonders whatever happened to his old squeeze, songstress Linda Rondstadt. After dating Brown in his moonbeam period, she dedicated one of her songs to him, Blue Bayou, after flushing him down the drain.
Does California really need a Ho Whisperer?
