Oakland’s Jean Quan can’t catch a break

Monday, November 7, 2011

imageWith Oakland’s city leaders in a state of catatonic inertia over what to do next about Occupy Oakland, Mayor Jean Quan continues to climb the ridicule scale. Calbuzz is the latest to sharpen its knife, depicting Quan in a witchy dunce cap, and offering this:

Quan, of course, is the Democratic hack who became Oaktown’s chief executive last year by virtue of a) finishing 11,000 votes behind our old friend Don Perata and b) collecting enough 13th round ballots, five golden rings and a partridge in a pear tree to emerge victorious, long after all right-thinking people had padded off in their jammies, foolishly thinking the election was over.

In any case, Mayor Q-ball has now managed, in near-record time, to transform herself into a global laughingstock with her human boomerang-style mishandling of the Occupy Oakland protests: “Her message was this,” Old Chronicle Oakland columnist Chip Johnson understated after the city’s first OO riot, “She had nothing to do with anything that upset anyone. “
