Stop the Presses for Gavin’s Tresses

What’s the big news story in San Francisco?

Evidently, Mayor Gavin Newsom has stopped using his trademark hair gel.

This may not seem very newsworthy to anyone who doesn’t live in San Francisco, but we take Gavin’s hair very seriously here. I’ve made comments about the mayor’s hair on my own blog constantly ever since he came into office. I personally applaud his new look, but some people have commented that he’s looking a bit too much like Matt Gonzalez with the new do. If it’s true that image is everything in politics, this might very well be a death knell for the Gavster’s career!

I tried to find other stories about image and City Hall, but so far the only person who can come close to Senor Newsom in style is Willie Brown. Gavin’s dapper predecessor is infamous for his fedoras, which had some people confusing the post of mayor with that of homicide detective — the fedora is a favorite among police detectives here as well. Of course, Gavin and Willie also are infamous for showing up with extremely hot dating material to society functions as well, so maybe Gavin is taking a few tips from hizzonner Brown. This all begs the question — did Willie advise Gavin to nix the hair gel? Inquiring minds want to know!

Actually, this is all probably just an excuse to focus on something in politics other than cybersex with congressional pages.
