    Mr Werner you are funny. You should consider being a stand up comedian. Isn't Congress that people have so much anger towards run by the Republicans? How can some one from the minority party have so much power into running this country into the ground?

    Given that every poll shows a complete lack of confidence in our congress and senate why would anyone vote for an incumbent? Oh! Mr Brown, when you say "a fair number of these individuals have engaged in questionable business dealings" you are describing our elected congressmen and senators perfectly. And yes, McNerney does have the advantage of experience. The experience of helping run this country into the ground.

    He has raised money, and all of it is from individuals. The media should dig harder into who these individuals are as a fair number of these individuals have engaged in questionable business dealings that Mr Gill would not want exposed. His political campaign could come to an abrupt halt.

    While he does have a small money advantage, McNerney does have the advantage of experience. He has worked in the private sector unlike Mr Gill who does not the vast business functions of the multimillion dollar enterprises in his district. It is interesting to see that he has never taken an internship or job with any large enterprise in his district. His two biggest private sector jobs have been with the Sacramento Kings and Oakland A's.

    How would this experience translate into creating jobs in large and small enterprises in his district? The answer is...not at all!!
