Potty Mouthed and Honest? He’s Got My Vote.

sandersphotohome2.jpgA San Diego mayoral candidate, Jerry Sanders, corrected the record yesterday, telling a reporter that he had not, in fact, said “Fuck you, Francis,” after a mayoral forum. Actually, he’d called his opponent by his first name, refusing to shake hands and saying, “Fuck you, Steve.”

“I am really tired of people thinking we should be buddies,” Sanders said. “People expect us to just shake hands and be buddies. I’m not going to do that. That’s the height of hypocrisy.”
In an interview immediately following the conclusion of Sunday’s forum, Francis repeatedly told this reporter that he couldn’t believe the mayor wouldn’t shake his hand. He made no mention of swear words, saying only, “I’m still shocked that he wouldn’t shake my hand.”
Soon after, Sanders would not address the handshake issue, saying only, “I’m not going to talk about that.”
Wednesday, Sanders did talk about it.
“If that offends him, then his skin is pretty thin, especially when that’s in the privacy of two individuals with nobody else standing around,” Sanders said. “We’re talking big boy stuff. We’re not talking about elementary school.”

Sanders then continued, “Oh, and that bastard is a cocksucker, too.”

God, I wish I lived in San Diego, just so I could vote for that guy.

Considering the positively vile charges pols frequently fling at one another in a race, I'm of the opinion that this is the only honest and respectable reaction to be given these days. Its not like tis without precedent. Heck, when Jefferson paid papers to call Adams vain and womanish, he stopped talking to him for decades. Jackson killed a guy! Plenty of other examples out there too.
