SFBG Radio: Tim and Johnny on Obama, Whitman and the hypocrisy of sit-lie


Today Tim and Johnny talk about Obama's energy policy, Whitman's only hope -- and why it's so silly for the mayor of San Francisco to be pushing a sit-lie law that can only lead to selective enforcement. You can listen after the jump.

I don't for the life of me see how Meg Whitman could tear down Jerry Brown enough to make this election competitive. Jerry's dull but quite competent, and aside from his well-publicized canoodling with Linda Ronstadt without benefit of clergy, a model of rectitude. Meg's negs include not bothering to vote for three decades, no governmental experience whatsoever, and she's gonna be in deep shit when she realizes you can't fire the legislature.

Agreed that we're not getting anything like the dynamic leadership that some people expected from the President. Myself, I'm neither surprised nor disappointed. Well, I hadn't been disappointed up until now. I thought that after a bit over a year he'd realized that bipartisanship and collegiality in DC were a pipe dream, and he was going to start acting in a more direct and focused fashion. There were hints of it in recent months. Oh well. Dammit, you made noises like a leader, so get on with it.
