San Francisco Values

Posted by Mark on November 4, 2006

Interesting. Very interesting.

The San Francisco Chronicle has decided to face a potential unflattering DESCRIPTOR head on. And for that…I’m semi-impressed- at least they’re not running from it. The quasi-moniker that is gaining traction with conservatives- ‘San Francisco Values’ will leap to the national stage should the Democrats gain control of the House of Representatives after Tuesday’s mid-term elections.

If the Democrats win the House on Tuesday, expect the descriptor -epithet, really – “San Francisco values” to become a permanent part of the media conversation.

Epithet? A little thin-skinned aren’t you? Uh….hardly an epithet. How about: “CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM”!

“If (House Minority Leader) Nancy Pelosi becomes speaker of the House, it will be on the Republicans’ list of top five talking points every week,” said longtime GOP media strategist and UC Berkeley political science instructor Dan Schnur.

Several analysts say the phrase is little more than the political flavor of the month — the month being November before a hotly contested election. Schnur and Democratic analysts agree that conservatives are looking for a blowtorch to light under their hard-core activists to get them juiced for election day, and “San Francisco values” is this year’s kerosene.

Well…you leftwing bats, you’re half-right. Conservatives may need to get ‘juiced for election day’ but we already knew months ago….what was at stake. We knew Nancy PeLOSER could be the next House Speaker. (My family has put me on suicide-watch.)

Over the space of a few days, the phrase “San Francisco values” has passed from the lips of conservative FOX News commentator Bill O’Reilly and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich onto the editorial pages of the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle, where the paper endorsed a Republican congressional candidate because a Democratic House would mean “Pelosi will be speaker and her far-left San Francisco values – gay marriage, cutting and running from Iraq, coddling terrorists, raising taxes, amnesty for illegals – will become the House agenda.”

Yep…the Augusta newspaper defined those ‘values’ quite well. “San Francisco values is this year’s kerosene?” No…this year’s kerosene- is the ENTIRE Democratic Party! As I’ve said many times before…they’ve been hijacked by a cadre of moonbats who represent those values. (MoveOn.org, George Soros, Howard Dean, John Kerry, ad ugly infinitum)

And the Senate? Oh good God- Harry Reid would be in charge. Jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge next to where I work…..

…. is still an option.

    Oh, I think you’ll live another day, Craig; and I’m glad to see you talking about values. If this article mean providing all families with equal opportunity (which doesn’t imply equal results), committing defense resources most efficiently, requiring responsible involvement from those who benefit the most from our liberties and exploring alternatives to extend those liberties to many who suffer worldwide, then I’m for it – that’s what our Republic is all about. Can Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Reid do that better then the current crowd? Well, that’s another story . . .
