I’m back from a very successful trip to San Francisco with a smattering of musings:
1. Voters in San Francisco don’t care about the Mayor’s affair; the only question that no one seemed to have an answer about was whether it was a one time event on an on-going thing; I haven’t read the coverage at length. And there were predictions that the Mayor would announce from rehab that he had also been abused by a Catholic priest.Ã‚Â The Chron reports that the Mayor should win re-election easily.Ã‚Â I was amused by the coverage in the Flash Report about this, since Mayor Rudy Guiliani was in the state this weekend.Ã‚Â At least Newsome didn’t hire his mistress for a job she was unqualified for at taxpayer expense.
2.Ã‚Â Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, in this clip, muses on his days as a journalist and while he doesn’t come out and say he believes in global warming, he muses that it might be caused by dinosaur farts.Ã‚Â Wasn’t Dana an editorial writer, like Greenhut?Ã‚Â The best columnists base their work on solid reporting.Ã‚Â So I suspect that Dana was one of those writers who was always right even when he was wrong.Ã‚Â If you view the clip, Dana suggests that when he was a reporter and the majority of people believed in a certain set of facts, they were, ini his experience, usually wrong.Ã‚Â Too bad that razor sharp instinct wasn’t there when Dana voted to authorize war in Iraq. Rep. Rohrabacher gets my vote as the next politician to warrant a visit to rehab.
