I Left My Bleeding Heart in San Francisco
President Obama came to Ess Eff tonight to raise a shitload of money for Barbara Boxer at an event at the Fairmont Hotel. On a freakishly cold and rainy late May day, everyone turned out to stand on Mason Street to welcome Barry.
While the predictable tea-bagger/ “Obama is a Mooslem Hitler Man”/ Hands-off-my-Medicare crowd managed to get through bridges and tunnels to protest in Baghdad by the Bay, the protest brought out some of my favorites, including the only-in-SF (or perhaps Eugene/Portland/Seattle) protesters, including, I shit thee not, the cliched save the whales crowd.
