If you wanted to get an idea of how fucked up SF politics are, check out this write-up of our upcoming mayoral election:http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2007/10/22/MN1FSFN93.DTL
We've got a do-nothing, pretty-boy incumbent, and no one of any substance running against him. His dozen opponents include a sex club owner, a homeless vegan cab driver, a performance art showman, and a nudist activist. Also some career political failures.
I'll probably vote for Josh Wolf, cause in addition to having a cool name, he's in favor of making MUNI free. Also, after spending seven months in jail, he deserves a few votes at least. Though I have to say he sounds like he'd be a total catastrophe of a mayor. But he'd be better than a lot of the other choices. Gotta love San Francisco!
