Afternoon Gavin Snack

By now you've already read the buzz about our buzz that Gavin's floundering at present (don't worry he should be able to bounce back whether you like it or not).

A few more fun items however have crossed our desk that may just cause Garry South to tug at his "hair."

First off Gavin - a big believer in social media - held an online town hall that appears to have been a real LOL.  Using online live video provider Ustream, Gavin held a session, with faux campaign rally signs in the background that attracted about 115 participants according to the LA Times.  The Old Gray Hag said the event was hindered by technical issues (obviously an embarrassment to Ustream co-founder John Ham who served as the broadcast's moderator) and Facebook refugees dropping in and out as topics covered medical marijuana and a public option for healthcare.

Next, in honor of Newsom's impending 42nd birthday, the San Francisco Weekly is sponsoring Comb Your Hair Like Gavin Newsom Day this Friday.  The Weekly describes the Newsom coif as being akin to the "straight-back Pat Riley look" but Newsom's not tight along the scalp.  Whether or not Weekly writer Joe Eskenazi turns out to be succesful in his attempt to replicate the Gavin-doo the fishwrap intends to celebrate the day "whether you like it or not!"

Late addition, Calitics also buys Garry's spin as if it were a free Starbucks vanilla bean soy latte.  As one veteran insider who gave me private props said if it weren't true "why would Garry have a cow about a crazy piece on a piss-ass blog?" Nor would respectable fishwraps and in-the-know blogs pick up on it? Dems are certainly questioning where the hell Gavin is at and looking for another entry into the race. Maybe a second chance for Mayor V?

Ugh. Now we are supposed to suddenly care about this because Mayor Sam wants to expand his blog coverage to San Fran County.

He's blowing off his core local followers while not picking up much from SF.

He's tried this before and begged for SF bloggers. Here we go again.

Orange County would make more sense though because there is a bigger demand for political blogging in that area and it is closer. OC is part of Southern California at least.

Earlier today you said Gavin had no chance. Now it says, don't worry he should be able to bounce back whether you like it or not?

And please don't clarify for me because I don't care. Was just pointing it out.

New field poll out. Will it be good news for Gavin and Clinton?
