Unwise at Any Speed
The Civic Center neighborhood was filled with old clunkers from the 1960s and 1970s this past weekend for the Harvey Milk film that was shooting around City Hall.
Coincidentally, a clunker of another sort was spotted in the neighborhood, the former San Francisco Supervisor Matt Gonzalez who has decided to run for Vice-President of the United States with Ralph Nader.
This is after not even being able to beat Gavin Newsom in a mayoral election, and then sitting on the sidelines for Newsom's reelection hinting that maybe, just maybe, he'd throw his hat in the ring, effectively ruining a lot of other people's chances at unseating the photo-op mayor.
Over at the amusing "Sweet Melissa" blog (click here), the author refuses to even write about their candidacy but does point out that the "Calitics" blog has the best headline on the subject: "Matt Gonzalez Quits Politics, Runs with Nader as Vice Presidential Candidate" (click here for the whole article with quite a few amusing comments).
