While perusing Facebook, SF Weekly couldn't help but catch a glimpse of this new photo on former Supervisor Chris Daly's page -- a Photoshop cutout of the fighting Donkey Kong in front of the ex-pol's Buck Tavern bar.
Is it a new, cheap ad for the bar or is he tossing around potential campaign ideas?
Nah, Daly said.
"Someone took the time to Photoshop it, so I took the time to post it," Daly told SF Weekly with a chuckle.
All right. Fine. But then we had to ask: When will it be on like Donkey Kong? Daly assures us that his chances of jumping into the mayoral race are increasing by the minute.
The Leland Yees and David Chius of the mayor's race don't seem to take him seriously, and they don't believe the city's left-leaning camp will produce a worthy candidate for the fight, Daly said.
"They think we are not going to have a candidate, but we will," Daly says. "And if it's not anyone else in the near future, it will be me."
Then he started kicking around some possible campaign slogans that have been on his mind.
"I was thinking 'Who said I didn't shave?'" Daly said.
