The Two Newsoms

******************************************************************************
I think Gavin Newsom is great.  World is the kind of place it is because of people like Gavin.  I used to love George Bush. He was an awesome president.  Bush single-handedly almost destroyed the entire planet by himself.  There is something to be said about stupid people.  They can really go far.  I think Bush is a real life specimen of what Evil really is.  He should be preserved and studied.  I find him fabulous and wonderful.  You won't find anything like him for a long time.  And here is Gavin.  Justs read what Guardian has to say.  I have to say Guardian has good writers and also that I stopped reading after what I read here but it could not be more to the point.  You have to live in San Francisco to get it.  What does truth and reality have to do with elections anyway?

There are two Gavin Newsoms: the mayor San Franciscans have gotten to know over the last six years, and the candidate running for governor.

Here's the reality: Newsom is a politically isolated mayor who refused to heed the voter directive to meet regularly with the Board of Supervisors or take part in budget negotiations involving key community stakeholders.
