List: Why is Newsom vying for California's lieutenant governorship? 

Wednesday, Feb 24 2010

Why is Mayor Gavin Newsom thinking about running for California's lieutenant governorship?

• He's worried that if he doesn't, San Franciscans will have nothing to laugh at this fall

• He believes he can make more of a difference as a figurehead

• He wants to work in a city where no hipster will ever find him

This will show Eric Jaye he shouldn't have left!

• Domestic bliss is unbearable

• He needs an excuse to keep talking to Maureen Dowd

• He wants a bigger platform for important ideas that will never work

• He thinks people will actually have to refer to him as "Lieutenant Newsom"

• Anything's better than being mayor. Anything

• It's the biggest "fuck you" he can think of to everyone in the city
