LONDON CALLING! Uh Oh, Sellout Supervisor Christina Olague Isn’t Getting Much Love From District 5 – London Breed Declares

Monday, February 27th, 2012

Now let’s see here, who’s going to endorse Sellout Supervisor Christina Olague (she went from being a Green to being a Dem to running a Republican campaign in just few short years – isn’t it ironic, don’tcha think?) when she tries to hold on to the office she was just appointed to as a reward for last year’s Run Ed Run campaign? I don’t know.

But I do know who’s not going to support her, uh, speak of the Devil, Mayor Ed Lee, for example – he says he’s staying out of this one. Oh, and California Attorney General Kamala Harris and an assortment of D5 NIMBY types won’t support Olague neither. I know this ’cause they’re showing up for District 5 native London Breed’s City Hall presser this AM. Deets below.

(Of course it’s very possible Accidental Mayor Ed Lee just might prefer London to win this one, but, frankly, it would be nice to see the Sellout Supervisor go down in flames after just a few months in office.)

Let’s shake things up, baby!

San Francisco Democrats Boo Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at Gala – How Wude!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Pity poor Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger – tonight he crashed the annual San Francisco Democratic Party Fundraising Gala and Auction at the Fairmont Hotel atop Nob Hill and he was rewarded with a loud round of booing.

Poor guy. Did Assemblymember Tom Ammiano spontaneously yell, “You lie” at Arnold, ala Congressman Joe Wilson? Haha!
