Groan: 7.5 hours of smug San Fran mayor Gavin Newsom

Hey, remember that judge who sentenced noise violators to Barry Manilow music? Here’s a worse sentence: Sitting through 7.5 hours of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom droning on and on and on about the “state of the city.” There are YouTube segments on health care, education, and the environment. But nada on the city’s infamously deadly illegal alien sanctuary policies.

He’s uploaded his entire speech on YouTube. Even his fellow libs can’t take it:

When San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom posted an epic State of the City speech on YouTube on Monday, reaction was mixed.

“Just what I wanted,” said Aaron Peskin, outgoing president of the Board of Supervisors. “Somebody imitating Al Gore for 7 1/2 hours. The guy did a Fidel Castro.”

…Supervisor Sean Elsbernd applauds the mayor for “a fantastic use of new technology.” But he also admitted he hasn’t watched more than 2 1/2 minutes and isn’t likely to view much more.

“Realistically, are the supervisors going to sit for 7 1/2 hours and watch this?” Elsbernd said. “No.”

A commenter cut to the chase — something Gavin Newsom seems constitutionally incapable of doing: “7 1/2 hours — plus the time spent writing, rehearsing and editing — could have been better spent solving the city’s problems instead of just talking about them.”
