Now that Mayor Filner has taken over Democratic San Diego, whom does that leave to take over Republican San Diego?
The title implies that, because a traditionally conservative San Diego voter base has elected a Democratic mayor that San Diego is now Democratic? It is more likely that union sponsored voter turnout efforts focused in largely Democratic areas in the city were successful and the traditionally conservative voter base rejected an openly gay mayoral candidate. But yes, it is more soothing and reassuring to concentrate on the fallacy that the San Diego citizenry have suddenly flocked to the Democratic side overnight.
Stay tuned for the next gloat-fest piece on how the City Council has miraculously overnight fallen into a Democratic majority.
