CA-Governor: Poizner Says Whitman Equals Schwarzenegger

I've written a bit about the challenge Meg Whitman has in persuading California voters that she's not another Arnold Schwarzenegger. But, my thinking was that this was more of an issue for her in the general election than the primary.
Whitman, like Schwarzenegger, is a socially moderate Republican and an outsider to government. The question to me has been whether the independents and moderate Democrats she needs to win will say to themselves, "We tried that already and it didn't work."
However, Whitman's primary opponent, Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, seems to think that this is an attack that will work in the Republican primary too. And, he could be right. Most Republicans don't like the job the governor has done either.
You can see Poizner's new ad below, though viewers who are sensitive to one person's face creepily morphing into another person's face may want to avert their eyes.
