Even though he’s California’s “top cop,” Attorney General Jerry Brown got two of his tires stolen yesterday. “No matter,” he tweeted on Twitter. ” I got 2 new ones and I’m rolling again.”
Jerry sometimes goes quiet with his Twitter posting but this week he’s been entertaining.
For instance, he planned a “recession reception” and solicited possible songs for a playlist, which he has posted on his Facebook page.
(In case you also have need of such a playlist-–and who doesn’t?—I’ve pasted in below.)

He also directed our attention to the latest polling information on the Dem side of the 2010 governor’s race.
Yes, Jerry’s ahead. Otherwise would he have told us to go look at the poll? Uh, no.
He’s 71 years old. So, as everyone reporting on the issue has noted, if he wins, he would become California’s oldest governor.
Or as Republican contender Steve Poizner put it on his own website, “When it comes to Jerry Brown and Election Day for California voters, it reminds us of the film ‘Groundhog Day.’ Every day is the same. Jerry’s always on the ballot.”
