For years, I’ve been getting a big case of the eyerolls from everyone in town because I’m so “obsessed” with Gavin Newsom, I’m so “in love” with our Mayor and I “worship” the ground he walks on.
A journalist once chided me for “humanizing” Mayor Newsom for her, making it harder to rip him apart. And I’m the example in a SF Weekly piece about the Cult of Gavin Newsom, for chrissakes. If I had a dollar for every time I heard, “Oh, you’re that nut that loves Newsom!” well, I’d be wearing cuter shoes right now.
So it was really exciting for me to get hate mail telling me what a loser I am for being so mean to Gavin Newsom. From someone in Houston!
Get a load of this masterpiece:
Subject: I give it two years
Appears you were wrong about how long Mayor Newsom’s marriage would last, but you’re still taking every opportunity to chew on him and haven’t yet apologized to his wife and baby. Sounds like you’re just another one of those “say no to everything, obstructionist, destructionists” who just can’t stand to lose. Funny, that, coming from a loser.
First of all, it hasn’t been two years.
Secondly, I definitely do not take every opportunity to “chew on him” because there aren’t enough hours in the day.
I’d never apologize to a baby because they can’t read. And also, while I occasionally feel pangs of remorse (I called their baby name tacky, and while I still think it’s, you know, not one for the ages, I feel bad about that one), I’m not really sorry.
Finally, what? Obstructa-who? Lose what? We’re talking about the Mayor’s women, right? Not policy? Not health care? Not homelessness? Not public transportation? Not immigration or gum? This obstructionist/destructionist wants to make sure she stays on topic. This is over, like, dating.
Anyway, we thought it would be fun to share this email with you because, see? Someone’s more obsessed than me!
