Shorter Gavin Newsom: Do As I Say, Not As I Do (Until I Get Caught)

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday apologized for what he called “a bad mistake” in attending a birthday party that broke the very rules that he has been preaching to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

He has suffered severe political backlash since it surfaced Friday that he and his wife attended the party Nov. 6 with a dozen friends at the pricy French Laundry restaurant in wine country north of San Francisco.

Yeah, sure he's sorry. I guess he was chanelling Leona Helmsley: Coronavirus restrictions, like taxes, are for the little people.

What he's saying in his apology is that he's a lemming, that he doesn't have a spine.

The fatass Illinois Governor is just as bad, as are most of the political and economic "elite" in the area.

So he got caught doing with many other plan to do.

Only difference I see is having a cult wilfully not watching.

Staying in and not gathering everyone?

Nobody I know plans to comply (unless they already were for real reasons; my mother has disinvited me from visiting for the rest of the year).
Thanksgiving outside? Hell, no.
The 'do as I say, not as I do' leaders need to leave public office.

Yeah, Gavin's kind of an ambitious reptile, but he's doing better than I thought he would do. He at least is a better governor than Arnie was...

Eyup, Eck!, gonna' do up a Tex-Mex Buckaroo Pie, Montana style.* Adjusted for my significant other's vegan sensibilities. When I get done with the shopping tomorrow morning we'll not go any further than the seawall 'till next Sunday. Spend No Money Friday starts Tuesday.

No, not economic terrorism, a boycott. Not necessarily non-violent ... non-participant.

* We used to do Chinese, same as xmas, but funny thing happened on the way to covid (er, somethin'): all the Chinese joints around here have closed down. Twenty-five percent of the population of this town is Chinese, but the nearest Chinese restaurant is a town or two over. It's been noted that that venue, Chinese restaurants, are a great graphic representation of the whole 'Coming to America' up-by-the-bootstraps immigrant dream: a generation of cultivated, well educated refugees (of communist tyranny!) slave a generation away over a hot pot of rice so their children and grandchildren can have a better life ... and now those children and grandchildren have college degrees, professional positions, BMWs, Mercedes, and they are sure as hell not going to work in a Chinese restaurant. It isn't just the covid killing 'em (the restaurants) off.
