Fletcher, Faulconer To Battle In Mayor's Race; Gloria, DeMaio Out

Interesting . . . why somehow, the writer of the article chose to omit that Nathan Fletcher has switched <i>"from Republican"</i> to Independent to Democrat.

It's hop, skip, jump. Not simply skip, jump.

White House Spokesman: Obama Has Not 'Weighed In' On Filner

Did Reagan comment when drunken Democratic Senators Chuck Todd and Ted Kennedy made that "waitress sandwich" at La Brasserie? Did Reagan comment on the male prostitution ring operating out of Democrat Barney Frank's home? No. No, Reagan didn't comment.

Did George W. Bush issue a comment when Democrat Eliot Spitzer, "Client #9," was compelled to resign in NY? Or when Democrat John Edwards used campaign money to keep his girlfriend's existence secret while his wife was dying? No. Bush did not comment.

So should Obama comment on Filner? The unions are determining who they'll anoint as Filner's replacement—and once that successor's name is made known to those involved in The Filner Settlement, Obama's sole comment will be a standard-issue, party line endorsement of our new mayor-in-waiting.

Roundtable: Filner Saga Rolls On; North Park vs Jack In The Box; Issa On Climate Change

First: The table is, like, oblong, dudes. Hence, a roundtable discussion is not possible.

Second: Al Gore was right on when he claimed the oceans would rise twenty feet in the next hundred years. He said that back in 1992, so let's see, that was twenty years ago, which is 1/5th of a century, so 1/5th of twenty feet . . . hmmm, I guess the oceans have risen 4 feet since 1992, then. Wooooah. So THAT'S why my cottage in O.B. is, like, floating four feet in the air, dude. That fact makes Issa's real, real dumb for not believing. Come to O.B., brutha...see what Gaia has wrought.

Third: Filner will protect us all from people who, like, want to do their whole improvement thing, like that roundheaded clown named Jack who wants to sell food.

He's Filner . . . any way he can!

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Banned From San Diego Hooters Locations

I miss those days when the NewsHour was still sponsored by both the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation AND by Hooters, because it made for such a great intro:

"The NewsHour, brought to you by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation . . . and by Hooter's, Delightfully Tacky Yet Unrefined . . ."

Mayor Bob. I haven't yet seen the photo of a lonesome Mayor Bob, walking on the beach like a tearful Pat Nixon at San Celemente, but I understand the media reluctance to run it. When a man is not only locked out of his own office, but is banned from Hooters, it not only leaves a man with nowhere to go—it leaves him with a very pouty face.

And no one wants to views images of Filner's pout. What would truly heal this city would be a slo-mo montage of Mayor Bob's many smiling public appearances, him avidly greeting and embracing the public, anyone within reach. All while Charlie Chaplin's "Smile" plays poignantly in the background. Bob, we hardly knew ye.

Supporting A Politician Through Scandal

Hey all, was in Costa Rica catching waves but back in Diegotown and what do I hear but all this about Mayor Bob.

But hey, as Johnny Cochrane said: If there's no blue dress, there is no mess.

So I stand beside this man, this member of the Party, and I hope all women and men will stand beside him.

And now there's this whole locked out thing . . . but haven't we all been locked out of our own places at some point? Ways back I lost a set while surfing this break off Cabo, had to hotwire my V-Dub. So give the man the Key to the City and hey, problem solved, back in office and greeting visitors with that smile.

Plenty Of Ways Filner Recall Could Fail

First: as an elected member of the Party the mayor should be entitled to stay in office. Second: the Party's Central Committee met secretly two times yielding only mild requests to the Mayor, *not* orders that the mayor obey the Committee. So: Party officials have shown restraint; we should all be in agreement that what the Party wants ought to be what matters.

Filner Vows To Move Forward As Mayor In Recall Response

Please, people—there is *no way* that Bob's fellow Democrats in Congress—had they known—would have remained silent about the man's naughty horseplay while he was in Washington. After all, both media and Congressional Dems were impressively vociferous in decrying Sen. Ted Kennedy's and Sen. Chris Dodd's hijinks when they were doing things like drunkenly grinding out that "waitress sandwich," now weren't they? Why, Kennedy was mocked appropriately and relentlessly afterward by media as "The Lion of the Senate," or "The Conscience of the Senate." Those teasing nicknames surely taught him a thing or two.

So any media investigation of complicity aimed at shielding Filner's reputation would be silly. No congressional aides are worth talking to, and no DNC folks neither, nope. All of that tiring "who knew what and when did they know it" stuff—sheesh!

It was a refreshing, united media/Democratic silence about Bob's Congressional-years hijinks that helped bring our city Our Mayor, the Honorable Bob Filner, the neediest man in town, and a man who really, *really* needs us to stand beside him now.
