Michael Moore, Gavin Newsom Flip-Flop

Far from the first and not nearly the last, filmmaker, Michael Moore, joins Gavin in a political flip-flop.

Four years after delivering a speech on behalf of then Green Party candidate, Matt Gonzalez, Michael Moore sat down with Gavin Newsom who is now virtually unopposed for re-election. The Oscar-winning director planned a round table discussion regarding on healthcare as an adjunct to his promotional tour for “Sicko,” an indictment of the U.S. Healthcare system.

Moore extolled praise upon Newsom for promoting a universal health care plan for San Francisco and taking a stand on gay marriage.

I want to say how proud I am to sit next to you here.

Later, Moore and Newsom held a private screening of the new documentary followed by a question and answer session. Today, Matt Smith of SF Weekly weaves his own made-for-the-Internet conspiracy theory involving Moore, Hollywood’s Weinstein brothers, Gavin Newsom, and the international hype machine.

Check out the video for yourself. Me, I say, who cares? Matt Smith’s video is just one of many of the lonely Green Party satellites emanating hot air (destroying the ozone layer) as they orbit hot-topic Gavin Newsom… searching to destroy. Smith’s flick is a weightless, pointless mass without a nucleus. I gave it two yawns and a delete.

Face it, Hippies! Chris Daly and his Big Bang Convention have Plutoed. The Regressives are without a candidate, because none of the Green Party nominees had any votes. You already gave them to Gavin – Good! As a Quality of Life advocate, I’m grateful. No doubt Gavin will set sight on a bigger office with a bigger constituency far outside The City… and far more conservative. Gray’s the new Green! Our city sidewalks will finally get the attention they deserve.

Clean, Safe Streets!
