As soon as the polls closed and Meg Whitman was elected to represent the GOP in the California Governor’s race, in what promises to be one of the most watched races in the country, the mud started to fly:

In an apparent chance encounter with KCBS’ Doug Sovern,  Jerry Brown according to Sovern said:  "It's like Goebbels," referring to Hitler's notorious Minister of Propaganda. "Goebbels invented this kind of propaganda. He took control of the whole world. She wants to be president. That's her ambition, the first woman president. That's what this is all about."

Sterling Clifford, Jerry Brown's campaign spokesman confirms to the Associated Press that the conversation took place, but dismisses it as the proverbial out of context sound bite.

Meg Whitman Campaign Manager Jillian Hasner is not as glib, quite the contrary, she seized on the opportunity to blast Jerry Brown saying:

"Just last week, Governor Brown promised he wasn't going to engage in mudslinging, but now he is comparing Meg Whitman to Hitler's Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels. Jerry Brown's statements comparing our campaign to a propagator of the Holocaust is deeply offensive and entirely unacceptable." 

Get your mud flaps ready.  The California Mud Wrestling Federation (MWF) 2010 Edition opening ceremony has now concluded.
