33. And she got her ass kicked out of the Sonoma Farmers' Market.
This past Tuesday, she was in Sonoma in a big green bus with "Jobs are on the way" billboards on the side. They were driving all around town, which is two miles square and has a population of around 9,000. They would park the bus on the street and in front of some pretty influential Rebpublicans' houses.

They had the thing parked in front of Don Sebastiani's house, which is on my block. Don is a real rightie and is also "the" Sebastiani of wine fame.

So I walked on down to the bus to see what was up and, lo and behold, there was the Megster herself. I asked her what in the world she was doing in Sonoma, considering there are probably no more than 1,500 registered voters. "We are touring small towns in our bus and meeting people." I thought that rather strange because there is no in-between here, just hard-core Dems and the Other Guys.

Then, they drive four blocks to the Plaza.

Our Tuesday Markets on our Town Plaza are a really big deal. Hundreds of people show up.

So Meg and her bunch disembark right in front of the Plaza and get out, only to be confronted by Hilda - the director of the market.

You would have had to have been there.

Hilda- 80-something years old farmer's wife, WalMart clothes and a walker.

Meg Whitman, imperiously smug.

Hilda told her to leave because "politicking isn't allowed".

And leave, they did.

Meg Whitman backed down to an old woman with a walker.

I wish I would have had a camera.

The whole thing is in Kathleen Hill's article from 10/22 at .

Do not buy Sebastiani wine.
