Bevan Dufty loves Muni


The award for the best political ad of the year (so far) goes (no surprise) to Bevan Dufty, who is the only mayoral candidate willing to laugh about himself and the only one who could pull off an ad that's a love poem to Muni.

I'm sympathetic: I love Muni, too. But I'm not running for mayor and trying to explain why the system is so fucked up.

Still: It's great to see Dufty on the train with his kid, and it's great to remember how exciting Muni is for kids, and I laughed when I saw the ad. Which is something.
