Chris Daly Will Be Remembered as an Asshole And a Hippie, In That Order

Supervisor Chris Daly's Wednesday night roast at the Independent encompassed everything Chris Daly is -- entertaining and overly indulgent.

But it was the perfect way to send off the prolifically profane supervisor, who is at this point is just plain unelectable. 

His friends, foes and Supervisor David Chiu filled the room to give Daly a proper goodbye, which included pegging him as a complete asshole, a baby daddy, and a dirty hippie.

"I'm not saying Chris is an asshole, because that goes without saying," said Aaron Peskin, former president of the Board of Supervisors. "But you know you have a personality problem if Aaron Peskin tells you to dial it back."

Good point.

It cannot be ignored that Daly's $20-per-person event was to help charity. All proceeds will benefit St. James Infirmary, which provides healthcare for sex workers. And don't think people didn't riff off that. A dildo was brought on stage. 

Of course the night wasn't complete without many, many references (and even T-shirts made)  to the quote that's boosted Daly's popularity to epic proportions: It's on Like Donkey Kong.

"That's replaced 'don't touch my junk,'" said Carolyn Tyler, anchor for ABC7.  

And when a slightly boozed Daly took to the stage, his unsavory antics reached a whole new level.

"The only politician who gets more black cock than Mark Leno is Ed Jew," Daly said. 

And then someone struck the gong.

  • 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.'"
