As seen in the Lower Haight, just yesterday, the wordiest T-shirt I’ve ever encountered:
And here’s the contra:
Peasant Woman: We don’t have a lord.
King Arthur: What?
Dennis: I told you, we’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as sort of executive officer for the week…
King Arthur: Yes…
Dennis: …but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting…
King Arthur: Yes I see…
Dennis: …by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs…
King Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: …but by a two thirds majority in the case of more…
King Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
Peasant Woman: “Order”, eh? Who does he think he is?
King Arthur: I am your king.
Peasant Woman: Well, I didn’t vote for you.
1. Your name is Ivory Madison for real? Oh. Really? How theatrical.
2. I think you mean former friend, right?
3. [Sanctimonious line reading but otherwise within the bounds of reality.]
4. I think I’m going to call bullshit on this one. That’s just your opinion, IM.
5. So you “contacted the police on her behalf” but without her permission? And in a maladroit fashion to boot, one might add. Like using your personal iPhone to do so, “anonymously.” You’re not that sharp, are you, IM?
6. [Sanctimonious line reading but otherwise within the bounds of reality.]
7. All right, I’ll bite. How does suspending Ross Mirkarimi protect victims of DV?
8. Uh Madison, I don’t think you can declare victory before a process ends, right? And it turns out that Christina Olague’s vote didn’t matter nohow. You understand that, right?
9. You didn’t want to get involved? Are you fucking serious – who’s going to believe that, Huntress?
10. Voters need to know what Olague did? Don’t they know already? Mmmm…
11. Is Ross Mirkarimi a “convicted batterer” like in real life? What does the word “batterer” mean? What does the word “batter” mean? Oh, what’s that, you didn’t actually have a chance to learn that in colledge because you thought a high school diploma would suffice when applying to Stanford Law? That might have worked for Daredevil Matt Murdock in the comix but I don’t think that kind of thing works IRL.
12. Um, I think Ross Mirkarimi is your Sheriff because your neighbors voted for him, like overwhelmingly, right? Didn’t you host a fundraiser for him?
13. Does Christina Olague really think “it’s OK to abuse your wife?” Any support at all for this, you know, outside of this particular vendetta? Wow.
Hey Ivory. You talk about law school so much, why not just sign up for the state bar exam and study for it? You could pass if you applied yourself.
“…on Friday and Saturday the city, California College of the Arts and Mix & Stir Studio are sponsoring an “unhackathon” to get designers, software engineers and others to tackle the clearly broken central dispatch system for San Francisco’s taxi system.“
But Jimmy, we don’t actually have “a central dispatch system* for San Francisco’s taxi system.”*
Therefore it’s not “broken.”
Therefore it’s not “clearly” broken.
Hey, now speaking of broken, why don’t all these college boys and girls take on San Francisco’s pension “system?” Shouldn’t it be reformed ‘n stuff? Like for real this time?
Well, maybe not typical, but she was a fully-licensed hack back in the day at least, back when she hijacked a meeting on the steps of City Hall. (Her “K” sticker shows her support for Prop K, but shhh, don’t tell the unhacksters about Prop K, oh no.)
The point is, Jimmy, is that you’re covering a political issue, one having to do with the Twitterloin and the sf.citi PAC and whatnot, as if it weren’t a political issue.
Click on over to see if you can figure all this out.
“This Monday, please help me reject the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club’s PAC recommendation that I be endorsed as the #2 candidate for Mayor. If you are a current or recent member of Alice, please join me Monday, September 12th at the LGBT Center from 5:30-8:00 p.m. to vote no on the PAC so that they change this recommendation. If you are not a member of Alice, please join me outside of the Center to show that a club with a 40-year history of advancing the LGBT community should not make me their second choice.”
Paw PAC, “California’s Political Action Committee for Animals,” is pleased as punch with your Senator Leland Yee this AM. Deets below.
Two thumbs up from the King of Canines:

“Senator Yee Receives “A+” from Paw PAC for 100% Record on Animal Issues
Yee is one of four Senators to receive top score from California’s Political Action Committee for Animals
SACRAMENTO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) received an “A+” grade for his 100 percent voting record on animal issues from Paw PAC – California’s political action committee for animals. Yee was one of only four Senators to receive an “A+” score.
The Paw PAC scored legislators on 8 bills ranging from fur labeling to animal cruelty.
“How we treat our animals is really a testament to how compassionate we are as a society,” said Yee. “These bills not only provide additional protections for animals, but also help humane consumers who are looking to do the right thing with their pocketbook.”
Paw PAC is a nonpartisan, nonprofit political action committee dedicated to the passage of humane laws and election of humane legislators.”
The powerful San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee is, once again, having elections come November. You’ll be confronted, once again, with a ballot that’s filled with a bunch of names, most of which you’ve never heard of, and the obligation to check off your dozen favorites.
If you want, you can head over to the intersection of Market and Octavia this Saturday, April 3, 2010 and then head into the the LGBT Center‘s Ceremonial Room from Noon to 5:00 PM. Then you’ll be able to see and hear some of the candidates for DCCC in 2010 address members of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.
They’ll all be answering a few questions from the crowd. (I don’t know if you need to be a member of the club to drop by, but you should be able to join the club, of course, if you want.)
The 12th District (Assemblywoman Fiona Ma country) reps the west side and 13th District (Assemblymember Tom Ammiano country) reps the east side of town, mas o menos. Find your district and see if any of these folks will be one of your twelve favorites:
DCCC DISTRICT 12th CANDIDATES:
Sandra Lee Fewer
DCCC DISTRICT 13th CANDIDATES:
Melissa Ann A. Apuya
Robert Gabriel Haaland
Owen P. ODonnell
Joe Alioto Veronese
And, oh yes, Alex Volberding would like everyone to know that he too is running for the DCCC in the 12th. But the two lists above aren’t exhaustive, they just show who plans on showing up at the next Milk Club PAC meeting. (The entire exhausting list of candidates for S.F. has 51(!) names this go-around.)
