Separated At Birth: Christian Bale

Is my mask of sanity slipping or is San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom bearing a strikingly handsome resemblance to one of modern Hollywood’s elite cult figures - actor Christian Bale?

Bale’s most acclaimed roles are lead in Batman Begins and serial killer Patrick Bateman in American Psycho.

Suddenly and for no apparent reason, author of the controversial novel Bret Easton Ellis, begins with the lead character, Patrick Batman, stabbing a homeless man.

Spontaneous Degeneration or Careful Contemplation Evolving, Disolving Inside Out like the Spontaneous Slip of The Stranger's Neck Upon a Knife (Albert Camus) or Perhaps, a Platonic Pull pushing Ellis into Eddy in the Withering Streets of The Tenderloin Heights?

Not unlike the Newsome administration, Ellis constructed the work with no way to understand the Killer's motives, making it even more frightening. From here, the body count grows to include prositutes, gays, girlfriends and children.

And, I'm hoping he'll do the same with the Mayor’s purple latex glove wearing Valentine's Day stalker, Han Shin, in a sequel!

Meantime, Christian Bale rightfully rehearses his lines to an acceptance speech on the not so distant horizon and Newsom readys himself for some punches below the equator as he prepares to follow Actor-Turned-Politician and mentor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, for what will be his first contest since his victory over Matt Gonzalez in 2003 mayorial race -
