Speaker seeker Nancy Pelosi authorized a robocall today asking
San Francisco voters to forget about her pro-war, pro-patriot
act and anti-global warming voting record, and just vote for her
In past election cycles Pelosi has cruised to victory with as
much as 80% of the vote and this may well be the first time Pelosi
has felt threatened as evidenced by her robocall.
Keefer, the new progressive leader of San Francisco?
Green Party candidate Krissy Keefer is not expected to pull off
the biggest political upset in U.S. history tomorrow by defeating
Pelosi, but a good showing at the polls may elevate Keefer status
beyond grassroots activist to leader of the San Francisco progressive
movement, a movement in desperate need of new leadership and organization.
What would Freud say?
Ryan Chamberlain of SFSOS ilk admits being hatefully obsessed
with Supervisor Chris Daly, so much so that he's willing to get
down on his hands and knees to take close-up pictures of human
excrement and use the pics in a campaign mailer blaming Daly.
Make a note of it; Daly is also to blame for 9/11, the Kennedy
assassinations, the San Francisco 1906 earthquake and Mayor Newsom's
of foot patrol legislation.
Chamberlain admits taking the photos for Citizens
of Reform Leadership, a political action committee headed
up by SFSOS
President Wade Randlett.
Let's hope Chamberlain sent a copy of the mailer to the Mayor
and the Department of Public Works to let them know they are completely
absolved of any blame for failing to provide minimum basic public
sanitation facilities for the homeless in San Francisco.
Note, there are better sanitation facilities in a Darfur refugee
Black hires campaign workers
Desperate to help get BOMA, SFSOS, GGRA and the POA's lies to
stick, Rob Black has hired campaign sign holders at the rate of
$15 per hour. Meanwhile hundreds of Daly volunteers, young and
old, donate their time because they believe in their candidate.
Note to Black, some of the people you have hired support Chris
