District Five Meltdown: Here’s the Entire Ad Against Christina Olague and Julian Davis and “Shell Oil”

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Oh, well, here’s the whole thing, or at least all of the back of the mailer.

(When they say Shell Oil, what they mean is Shell Energy North America.)

 

District Five Meltdown: Republican-Backed Hit-Piece Against Olague and Davis Features Solar-Powered Shell Station

Monday, November 5th, 2012

This is from the already-famous hit-piece mailer regarding Shell Energy and some candidates for District Five Supervisor.

Now, why did the dumb-clucks who made this ad decide to pick the world’s most solar-powered gas station?

I don’t know, because they don’t know what they’re doing?

NB: Your bad cosmetic surgery fools nobody. People laugh at you when your back is turned, you know, at those benefits ‘n stuff. Perhaps just aging gracefully is a better, safer option?

District Five Meltdown: Going Over Ivory Madison’s Sanctimonious YouTube Demo Reel Against Christina Olague, Line By Line

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Here’s a one-minute hit piece against Christina Olague from Ross Mirkarimi neighbor Ivory Madison:

Yes, she’s coming back for more.

You have the script so here my notes:

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.

Just asking…

District Five Meltdown: How Linda Voight and Ron and Gayle Conway Spend their Money to Make Olague and Davis Look Evil

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

This is how they do it, with a flyer in the mail talking about how Christina Olague and Julian Davis support  giving nearly $20,000,000 a year to Shell Oil.

See?

Now, is that true?

No.

But it appears that Christina Olague and Julian Davis have run afoul of a few PG&E-loving Bay Area billioniares, et uxes.

Now, I’d call this cabal Conway/Coates, but they, and I’m seriously, call themselves:

“San Francisco Women for Accountability and a Responsible Supervisor Opposing Christina Olague 2012.”

So that’s SFWFAAARSOCA 2012 for short, sort of.

Here’s Tim Redmond’s take:

So-called DV group doing PG&E’s dirty work

Fair ‘nough.

But hey, do you see the orange skies up there, right where the heads of the progressive D5 front-runners have been Photoshopped?

Mmmm…

Hey, I know, let’s take Linda Voight and Photoshop her into a shot of the Great PG&E Pipeline explosion of San Bruno.

Thusly.

I see dead people:

Now doesn’t she look evil?

I think so.

D2 Update: Janet Throws Down – Files FPPC Complaint, Mark Gets Endorsed by SFChron, and Kat Endorses Mark and Abe

Friday, October 29th, 2010

I don’t know, I’m not competent to weigh in on the pros and cons of Janet Reilly’s FPPC complaint against Common Sense Voters, SF 2010. But here it is, just released this afternoon:

Reilly Press Release – 10-29-2010

FPPC Complaint Against Common Sense Voters

Part of this fuss is over this NotJanetReilly website, which appears to have something to do with “Salsa Labs” and yet, amazingly,  doesn’t crash when you look at it.

So that’s that, moving on.

Mark Farrell‘s Facebook page is something I hadn’t seen before – it’s filled up with well-wishes from the high and mighty. See?

District 2: Farrell is voice of restraint

And Kat Anderson is out with some releases today as well. I’d have to call this graf below evidence of a co-endorsement. Only candidate Barbara Berwick has co-endorsed in D2 so far AFAIK, so this is news:

“VOTE TO ELECT A MODERATE REPRESENTATIVE. Please fill out your absentee ballots and mail them now.  Or, you can walk them to your polls on November 2nd.  You can also go to the Department of Elections at City Hall and vote early.  And, of course, you can engage in a great right and ritual on November 2nd, and go vote at your polling place.  Be sure to encourage all of your friends to GET OUT THE VOTE and to support the true moderates:  KAT ANDERSON, MARK FARRELL AND ABRAHAM SIMMONS.”

See Kat’s plans for Halloween after the jump.

And oh geez, here’s more about the recent, big-money independent expenditure – hear from Frank Jordan (is he alleging a crime when he puts “independent” in quote marks?) and Louise Renne too.

That’s it, that’s your final D2 Update for the day.
