Sure, Ed Lee might have Brian Wilson and a host of tech moguls stumping for him, but so far only one SF candidate appears to have an endorsement from a guy who successfully fought fought the Predator AND the South African government. (On film.)

Yes, that’s SF native, D5 resident (that makes him an SF voter, unlike some celeb endorsers), and Predator 2 and Lethal Weapon franchise (among others) star Danny Glover in those photos getting the (final) word out for SF Sheriff’s candidate Ross Mirkarimi on Sunday.

Glover, who’s quoted in materials from the Mirkarimi campaign (which also sent us these photos) as saying that Mirkarimi has “got to be one of the hardest working elected officials I’ve ever seen,” joined the aspiring lawman for a rally at 24th and Mission Sunday.

    Should point out (to connect to the headline) that Glover is 65 years old. Not too much older than some of our mayoral candidates, and in fact younger than Tony Hall. So, I’m not sure age applies to this story.

    Thanks for your comment, Bryan!

    The headline is a reference to Glover’s very famous (or so I thought) catchphrase from the Lethal Weapon films, “I’m getting too old for this shit.”

    It’s a very famous quote from an equally famous movie. Shame on you, myrna.
