stinglikeabee: classic denny colt  (facepalm)
1. Antonio Villaraigosa is re-elected Mayor of Los Angeles. Not that I had faith someone else would win, and generally, Villaraigosa isn't that bad*. BUT re-election has increased speculation that he intends to run for Governor next year. Oh dear lord.

1a. When I arrived at SFO last week and saw San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's huge grin on a welcome sign, I cracked up. Because it's miles away better than the pictures of Villaraigosa's empty-eyed stare mugging the camera. Anyway, Newsom will be running for Governor next year. I can't wait for the lulz when opponents replay the 'Whether You Like It Or Not!' clip that was an intense soundbite for Yes on 8 adverts.

2. PAD is more than out-of-touch with his audience and other comic book fans, he's stomping around in a fountain of White privilege and splashing the rest of us (via deadbrowalking and [ profile] brownbetty).

*I bring you the classic LA Weekly article, The All-About-Me Mayor: Antonio Villaraigosa's Frenetic Self-Promotion.

Me and oh, 1 other person reading this will know what I'm well excited about:


Do I dare be that twonk what yells 'DO THE ONE AND ONLY!' at the stage?
