Seriously This Guy for Mayor?

Well, he would have been a better Mayor than James Hahn. Back then, we needed a real PR person and BS'er so Los Angeles could get its fair share of Federal bucks and popularity. Mayor Hahn did internal things that others would have done.

Nonetheless he: 1) got rid of Chief Parks and brought in Chief Bratton (huge move), 2) created more left turn arrows at busy intersections, and 3) put the NCs in business.

His alleged "pay-to-play may have helped bring outside money to Los Angeles but its hard tell if that was the best result as we see how the likes of IBEW paid and played hard.

Tom, would be a fun Mayor. But that would have worked a long time ago...back in Sam Yorty's day. I think Tom ought to be a news anchor or a TV weatherman.

They should put laBonge in charge of the city's bike program to replace michelle mowry who's coming under so much criticism for her remark, even unfairly nominated Grinch of the Year on Metblogs when she's FAR less dangerous than those who screw up in big ways that affect all our lives.

Then LaBonge MIGHT actually have to lose that fat gut. How can he hike and bike so much and still be so fat?

Take away his role as head of Sister Cities Boondoggle Program - he and Janice Hahn his soul sister as Gasbag Travelers in chief travel WAY too much around the world using that as an excuse and they're total nobodies on the world scene even compared to the mayor but they get away with it, no one pays much attention. Unfair.

At least when you have a loud, glad-handing meathead of a mayor like this, no one has to "pretend" he has anything to do with what actually happens in the city or the running of it.

It's just understood everything is really on auto-pilot, and the "emperor" not only has no clothes, he isn't even really the emperor. He's just the court jester, keeping us preoccupied while the power players try to locate a real leader for the next time around.

With Tony V, we're still in "pretend" mode, and his handlers just keep telling us that everyone has no clothes.

Garcetti doing a wonderful duck and cover from the Mayor Sam's camera! Or is it a DWP power pole protecting D'Arcy's interests?

If LaBonge is elected Mayor, a monkey will jump out of your ass and sing Ave Maria...

La Bonge is dumb, but very personable and responsive to his constituents. He will respond personally including return phone calls in the evening - that's pretty rare.

He will also turn around in response to MAJOR opposition from the voters (especially if carried in the press). Garcetti, on the other hand, may stick it through in his corruption and warped belief of sky-high development in Hollywood.

I don't think La Bonge is "Mayor material" but benchmarking Villaraigosa puts him at an advantage.
