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?
