C.W. Nevius: “Hi Carmen, it was a good thing your toothless resolution didn’t pass today and Chris Daly’s resolution did. Had your resolution passed, my pro-establishment editors would have forced me to praise your efforts in supporting Chinese government oppression, and the deaths of 140 Tibetans. You got anything bad to say about Daly?”

Carmen: “Yeah, that sonofabitch kicked my ass today and I’m running for election. Why does he stand up for the oppressed?”

C.W. Nevius: “Gosh, I don’t know, Carmen. Maybe it has something to do with the reason why politicians should get into politics – to help the less fortunate who would otherwise be ignored and left to die? After all, Daly’s not a career politician like Gavin.”

Carmen: “I wish I could be like Chris, but I was appointed by Newsom. I have my orders and so do you. Now go and write something that demonizes the only politician in San Francisco that has the guts to stand up for those Tibetan animals.”
