Why is Mayor Gavin Newsom thinking about running for California's lieutenant governorship?
He's worried that if he doesn't, San Franciscans will have nothing to laugh at this fall
He believes he can make more of a difference as a figurehead
He wants to work in a city where no hipster will ever find him
This will show Eric Jaye he shouldn't have left!
Domestic bliss is unbearable
He needs an excuse to keep talking to Maureen Dowd
He wants a bigger platform for important ideas that will never work
He thinks people will actually have to refer to him as "Lieutenant Newsom"
Anything's better than being mayor. Anything
It's the biggest "fuck you" he can think of to everyone in the city
