MORFORD: Love Still Rules San Francisco

Leather, techno, sex & war: more only-in-SF juice to make you proud. Take that, uptight neocons. It was the moment when we walked by a jam-packed S.F. City Hall and realized it was open to host a VIP techno dance party, while immediately outside its gilded doors upward of 50,000 revelers wandered and shimmied and flaunted their costumes and drank nasty Red Bull cocktails in the huge Civic Center plaza for the third annual Love Parade, everyone baring flesh and shaking their groove thangs to any one of 200 world-class (well, some of them) DJs spinning their wares on over 24 oddly decorated floats and everyone in a sort of "Oh my God would you look at this place" daze ...
It was just then that the S.O. turned to me and said, "You know, it's days like this when I wonder if our fair mayor takes one look outside his City Hall window and says, 'Man alive, would you get a load of this, is this not breathtaking and divine and perfect and am I not in charge of the funkiest, strangest, most radiant and eclectic and openly progressive city on the goddamn planet and how astoundingly cool is that?'"
(Click here for a nice, grainy amateur video clip of the plaza in full swing, shot by yours truly on a beat-up little Canon PowerShot from the steps of City Hall, 3.7 Mbytes .avi. Or click here for a short video demonstration of the Love Parade Butt Shake, as performed by a fine callipygian friend of the author, 1 Mbyte .avi. What's not to love?)

Makes you want to grab for the KY Jelly, doesen't it?
openly progressive city on the goddamn planet
Yeah, that might be a fitting description of the planet if it keeps heading down the path it is on.
This makes me want to sheehan (my latest term for vomit).
"Love Parade Butt Shake"? More accurately, the "Shake Your Money-Maker Parade". Morford and SanFran once again confusing Love with Physical Gratification.

Nothing different than what the Israelites did when Moses left Aaron in charge to go up Mt Sinai. He came back with the Ten Commandments while the "love parade" was going on....
God sees it all....

Moses came back with the Ten Commandments - one of my favorite cartoons has Moses showing the Commandments to the people and he says, "Thats a good question". He turns and goes back up the mount, you see a big explosion and Moses comes back down looking like he had been hit by lightning and he said "He says yes, all of them, all of the time"
Question: Normally, we call such losers moonbats, but would it be more proper to call Morford a fruitbat?
