Meg Whitman, the Republican nominee for California Governor, used to be the CEO of eBay. She knows a lot about computers, right? Apparently not enough to prevent a staffer from mistakenly Tweeting a video of a cross- Japanese bass player.
At least, I think it was a mistake. Whitman has already poured a record amount of money into her private campaign for a position no one wants, but she might want to use that money to stop things like this from happening, via InfoWorld's Ted Samson:
That link goes to this video:
The woman who Tweeted the link to the video is Sarah Pompei, Meg Whitman's press secretary. The gentleman in the video is a member of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. Kidding! That's Jerry Brown. Kidding again! The person in the video is, I believe, K-ON Fuwa Fuwa Timebass, whose endorsement, as far as I know, is still up for grabs.
Why is our friend K-ON Fuwa Fuwa Timebass attached to the announcement about the sheriff's department? It's still unclear. I mean, sure, it was probably an accident! But it's way more fun to try and interpret the video as a re-enactment or re-interpretation of the SDCSD's endorsement.
