More-on-Meg?

Kind of a slow day here, so I started wondering, why would the 126th richest American who’s worth is reputed to be in the area of 1.2 Billion Dollars spend about 130 million of those hardly earned dollars to get elected to a job that only pays only a little bit over $200,000 in U.S. dollars a year?

This calculates out that she would have to hold this job for about 650 years just to break even, which is somewhat longer than even John McCain has been alive.

However, this bought elected office has term limits that offer (at the outside) 8 years of possible employment, unless your name is Gray Davis, in which case, not so much. So in re-calculating it, she’s paying at least $16,250,000.00 for each of those years she’s in office. Maybe more if the electorate pulls their collective heads out of their collective asses and removes her from her money losing (for us) scheme.

O.K., so the answer is not too difficult to track down, she owns major holdings in many mega-corporations that stand to rake in mega-billions (that’s with a “B”) if someone at the top of the heap makes some decisions that favor them.

How much did the old fart bid on eBay for an “air kiss”?

Two basic sayings, “Do the math” and “Follow the money”, will usually give you the right answer. And in Meg’s case, you’re sure to find that it’s the “right” answer, in fact I’d go so far as to call it the “Far Right” answer…..

    I don’t like Meg Whitman and I don’t like her hairline. She ought to wear bangs or a wig. She looks like a larva. And that’s all I have to say about her.

    Also, and not about Meg, but about the timezone your blog puts me in. Hm. According to Dog Bless us One and All I live in Reykjavik. I kind of wish I did, but I don’t. Reset to PDT – 122-00-00 West/ 39-20-00 North
