Gavin Newsom and Bill Clinton: Birds of a feather 

Wednesday, Sep 23 2009

Last week, Bill Clinton formally endorsed San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom for governor of California. Why is Clinton offering Newsom this critical support?

• Narcissistic personalities tend to attract one another.

• Newsom promised Clinton the secret to eternally youthful hair.

• Clinton really, really supports Newsom's position on the issues — or will, should Newsom take one.

• Jerry Brown is, like, old and stuff.

• Clinton is a ventriloquist.

• Newsom campaigned for Hillary in the Democratic primaries, so Bill owes him a futile gesture.

• The Clintons thought about it as a couple, and decided they wanted to buy a governor. 

• California campaign events are great places to meet hippie chicks.

• They both have the same vision for California: as a mattress full of campaign cash.

• Clinton, who worked his way up from nothing, likes making pretty boys who coasted on their daddy's connections kiss his ass in front of people. 

• Shared history: Turns out they once both did the same flight attendant.

• Newsom promised he'd let Clinton talk all he wants on YouTube.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
