I know everyone has probably heard that our governor has endorsed the idea of bringing the RNC to Anaheim. What actually shocked me was when I heard on NPR that Schwarzenegger has also suggested that San Francisco would be a good location for the 2008 convention.

I mean, geez! Did anyone else notice how quiet it was this past week? Between Burning Man and the RNC Berkeley was practically empty. Every time the media quoted someone about the protests in New York, it seemed to sound something like:
Governor Schwarzenneger has said that it would be a boom for the economy, creating jobs, growth and local business. But, c’mon! The RNC in San Francisco? How could anyone think that would be a good idea?
