The Cover Story of Tomorrow’s Bay Guardian is a (Very) Left-Handed Endorsement of Tom Ammiano for Mayor of SF

[UPDATE: An easier linkhttp://www.sfbg.com/2014/01/01/rise-candidate-x ]

I’m just at a loss over the cover story of the January 1-7, 2014 San Francisco Bay Guardian - “The Rise of Candidate X”

Comments:

- Whoo-boy, where to start? Does anybody at the SFBG really believe in this Robert Frost-y, fork-in-the-road, the-Mayor-makes-all-the-difference-in-SF theory? I can’t tell. IRL, there are institutional factors that push the two roads close together, sorry. The biggest difference would be for the actual people involved, like Ed Lee, and some department heads, and some commission members, and the SFGov nomenklatura. I don’t think the City itself would be changed all that much, sorry.

- Now if there’s a fake article from a real reporter on page 10 and a reference to a real article from the same reporter on page 6 and the reporter works for the same company as everybody at the SFBG, would that be cool? Or perhaps confusing to readers?

-Which of the real-life reporters should be most offended by the fake stories on pages 9-13? You Make The Call:

Phil Matier

Andrew Ross

Joe Eskenazi*

Jessica Kwong*

John Wildermuth

Ellen Cushing

Andrew Dalton

Steven T. Jones* (Yes, even STJ)

-Which one of the bits was even remotely entertaining/funny? IDK

-Is there even a remote chance that Scott Wiener or Mark Farrell will both lose reelection? Like IRL and not in a some fever dream prog circle jerk?

-And Candidate X is described as being a man but then also a man or a woman, like it was still unknown by the fake reporters? (I guess I there could be some sort of point here, but somebody’d have to explain it to me.)

-And then it turns out that Candidate X is (sort of) Assemblymember Tom Ammiano after all? I still have a button from his 1999 campaign - and he’s the heretofore unknown candidate?

I’ll be curious to see how people take this.

Appears to be a misfire, JMO

Attention Comrades! Please Attend Glorious JFK Drive Bike Lane Re-Education Camp Tonight – Attendance Mandatory!

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

From the Richmond District Blog comes news of tonight’s Richmond District Democratic Club meeting regarding the horrible new bike lanes on JFK Jr Drive in Golden Gate Park.

Longtime area cyclist and capitalist running dog Steven T. Jones typifies the type of person who will most benefit from re-education via the corrupt SFMTA and the messianic San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. See?

New JFK bike lanes are bad for everyone

I’d post a photo but the SFMTA has me watching an educational movie, you know, A Clockwork Orange-style.

And they DID admit that some fine-tuning possibly might be in order.

And my restraints are actually quite comfortable.

Maybe these horrible, one-of-a-kind bike lanes aren’t so horrible after all.

In closing, I Love Big Brother.
