After a fashion, anyway: She
encourages Nancy Pelosi to debate
her Republican opponent, John Dennis, and suggests that voters should take a look at him.
My good friend, SF politico and former VP Candidate [for Ralph Nader, 2008], Matt Gonzalez, has endorsed John Dennis because, as is your custom, you gutlessly refused to debate him. I am also encouraging you (once again, futilely) to not only debate John Dennis, but Gloria La Riva, too.
I like and admire both John and Gloria and support them as human beings who both have the two things that you lack but would have made you a much better person: courage and integrity.
As someone who got a kick in the teeth from the political school of elitism two years ago, I can't endorse anyone for Federal elections which I believe are only a huge sham and scandal at any rate, but I am convinced that either John or Gloria would represent district 8 in California far better than you have on your best day.
I talked to Dennis, who is happy with the quasi-endorsement -- he, too, mentioned that he was backed by Gonzalez, who nearly was elected mayor as a Green in 2003.
