Mayor Ed Lee's Business Card Reigns Supreme

Posted By on Fri, Jul 8, 2011 at 1:30 PM

While Mayor Ed Lee has been somewhat coy as of late about his intentions to run for mayor in November, there's no doubt the mayor is getting a thrill out of flashing his business card any chance he gets.

Lee doesn't have to be asked twice to whip out his card for all to envy and adore, putting all the other mayors' cards to shame.

We're not talking about Romalian type, raised lettering, or watermarks. It's much, much better, and it would undoubtedly destroy Patrick Bateman. Though the front is nothing extraordinary, the back shows a beaming Lee, hands cupped and hovering above the World Series trophy.

Some San Franciscans consider the cards collectibles. At a recent San Francisco Business Times mixer that Lee attended, executives were snapping them up.

"I passed it around to all the other mayors at the U.S. Conference of Mayors," Lee has reportedly said in recent speeches. "I said, 'Hi, I'm Mayor Ed Lee from the World Series Champions City of San Francisco. What mayor are you?' They looked at me and said, 'You've got to be kidding.' "

Don't pay the haters any heed, Lee, they are just jealous that San Francisco won the World Series and you are more popular than they are.

Are you sure you don't want to be mayor again?
