Happy Ending? Filner Bargaining for Kind Release

I'm playing hooky today because I'm drag-butt tired. The cobs may have some stuff for you. Otherwise I'll mostly just post some open blogs.

Eighty-one percent of San Diegans want Bob Filner to resign. There's chatter -- rumor only; maybe just speculation --that he's bargaining with Democrats to either stay on or negotiate some kind of graceful exit. I can't imagine what he'd think he'd get in return -- does he think some liberal think tank is going to hire him?

It's important for Democrats to get him out of office because at that point, the all-but-nonexistence media interest in the story goes away completely. Note that Mark Foley's resignation did not stop the media from continuing to question who might have aided and abetted him over the years -- but we'll see no such questions from the partisan Democratic newsletter we call the media. We haven't seen them as pressure builds on Filner, and we certainly won't see them after the pressure has been released.

Yup: I've been hearing this for a week but now it's being reported-- Filner is in mediation that may include his resignation.


As Rufus T. Firefly quipped, maybe he's bargaining for a Happy Ending.
