Cue Post-Obama Cringe-athon: Newsom announces candidacy for CA Governor
April 22, 2009
The SF Chron reports that Gavin Newsom loudly declared his candidacy for governor via social media services like Facebook and Twitter yesterday.
In his speech Newsom promised “to spin CA to the future.”
Welcome to the sad reality of post-Obama politics in the U.S., where every candidate will succumb to the temptation to imitate the form and style of the OFA campaign without capturing the substance.
If Newsom is any indication, many of these candidates will fall flat on their faces – repeatedly – in the process.
Somebody get this man a new speech writer.
