Heh. I guess I’m not the only one who thought he looked like Christian Bale in “American Psycho”.

Seriously, I hope he blows up his own campaign like he did the No on 8 guys last year.

You are welcome in Texas. But please tell your Obama supporting friends that Texas is an awful place to live and that they should stay in California. /s

Oh, brother, get this, he’s still bragging about SF being a Sanctuary city!

[snip]And, instead of hiding from those policies, he’s highlighting them on his site. The full text of that subsection is included at [1], but they include him highlighting his support for S.F.’s sanctuary city policy, the Bank on San Francisco program that lets corrupt banks profit from money that was earned illegally (see immigration banks), a program that gives non-emergency healthcare to all including illegal aliens, and a city ID card for all including illegal aliens. He’s also looking for people to send him policy ideas, and you might want to send him some polite suggestions: issues *at* gavinnewsom.com

How about two? Ventura and Franken. And then add in the first muslim congressman,Keith Ellison.

Or nutty but legitimate pols like Sen. Paul Wellstone, H. Humphries, etc.

Something in the water in Minnesota and it's spreading ;-)
