Instead of being ostracized for being so blatently anti-worker, the California Republican party actually nominated her for governor in 2010, along with Carly offshore Fiornia for Senator.

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
