    It's funny he talks about how reporters are rooting for the Chargers to win homefield so they can hang in San Diego in January.

    Prediction: If the Bolts win homefield, we're going to hear non-stop gushing about how beautiful San Diego is (to point out the great free advertizing we get from the NFL) and non-stop criticism of how run-down the Q is and how it's nearly tragic that we don't have a new stadium.

    NFL propaganda machine will get through to SD voters somehow. Bank on it.

    And maybe that's just what's needed to get something done on the political front...

    Fabiani was on 1090 just awhile ago, and he had nothing but negative stuff to say about Aguirre and the City of SD. He seemed optimistic about the possibilities in Chula Vista and National City. I really like Fabiani. He seems to be a very competent and straightforward guy.

    San Diego's politics seem totally bizarre at first glance but I've figured out the dynamic.

    For a long-time there was a strong "no-growth" element in this city. Then "no-growth" became kind of an expletive, since everyone figured out that "no-growth" meant "no-jobs." But there's still that element of San Diegans who are terrified of SD becoming like LA and they'll fight tooth-and-nail to preserve SD's "small-town" vibe.

    They don't realize they lost that war about 15 years ago. But they've become really good at blaming the Chargers and Alex Spanos for pretty much every bad thing that's ever happened in this city, including budgetary shortfalls, the '03 wildfires, and the fall of the Roman Empire. Spanos wasn't Mr. Popular in San Diego to begin with, so he became an easy punching bag. Meanwhile, voters were psyched by the legerdemaine while city counsel pilfered the city's treasury and managed the pension fund to the point of critical overload, and to deflect attention from that they used their whipping boys--the Chargers--to make everyone mad at the big rich football owner trying to steal taxpayer money.

    The level of hypocrisy in this whole episode is sickening even for an experienced political observer.
