Julian Guthrie, the Oracle for Oracle’s Larry Ellison, Thinks That Larry is “Funding” the America’s Cup – WTF?

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Oh poor Larry Ellison!

Apparently, having the taxpayers of San Francisco fund his boat race debacle is taxing his nerves.

Per sycophantic Julian Guthrie:

Larry talked to me candidly about the challenge of working with the city. So if he wins again, I would guess that unless the city comes up with a lot of money to keep the cup here, it’s going elsewhere. Larry’s not going to keep funding it himself. Personally, I can’t imagine that there would be an America’s Cup in San Francisco again.”

Now, does Larry have an official spokesmodel? (I don’t think so. Else Larry might have issued a statement after the death of Andrew Simpson.) So I guess Julian Guthrie is serving in this capacity? OK fine.

Uh, Larry Ellison/Julian Guthrie, don’t you realize that the City of San Francisco is funding the 2013 America’s Cup? 

So, Larry Ellison, it’s you who owes us money, not the other way ’round.

That’s Issue One.

Issue Two is this: Julian Guthrie, you’ve ridden this douche canoe so far upriver that you’ve lost touch with reality. You have access, but what have you done with it?

Wow: Vogue Magazine on What Former First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom was Doing Four Years Ago, Back in 2007

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Here’s the latest from Vogue (which of course has nothing, nothing at all to do with anything even possibly connected with “overt sexualization,” oh no).

Leave us remember 2007:

“Four years ago, when Jennifer Siebel Newsom, a onetime businesswoman and actress, decided she wanted to have a baby with her husband, Gavin Newsom, former mayor of San Francisco,* she looked at the world into which she would be bringing a daughter and saw a bleak picture. Around her, a tabloid culture in which women were prized for cattiness and overt sexualization was thriving, and in the political realm, things didn’t look much better.”

All right, but ’round about the same time, I seem to recall somebody going on about how “the woman is the culprit” and that same somebody calling writer and fellow “girl” Heather Maddan a liar.

OK fine.

Thanks for your insights, Vogue!

* And current Lt. Governor, don’t forget.
