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).

"a clunker of another sort" - Oh, what a beautiful transition! Love it!

Thank you so much for the shout.

Your fan,

Dude, you don't get it. See Matt's showing just how generous he is by LETTING Ralph be the Prez candidate and Matt GRACIOUSLY stepped aside and allowed him to do so, even though Matt knows he's the only smart kid in the world. (Funny thing though all his old political pals are for Obama!)

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to "ralph" something fierce after contaminating my brain with thoughts of Matt.

Seriously, are we ready to contemplate Matt Gonzalez a heartbeat away from the White House? "Who is it, Vladimir Vladimirovich?" "I don't know, some asshole kid in California hacked the hot line... look, get off this phone, schmuck, this is for grownup business... President of what?? I'm hanging up, OK? I'm hanging up... right... NOW."

Allowing a greater percentage of Americans to participate in earth-destroying economic growth is the basic platform of both Hillary and Barrack.

McCain wants to destroy the earth for the exclusive benefit of the rich and powerful.

All support earth-destruction.

Someone needs to say this. Strange that such a viewpoint is not p.c.

I like Matt. And Whitney Leigh is a dreamboat.
