San Francisco Board of Supervisors candidate George Davis campaigned in Times Square completely naked earlier this week. He lacks clothes; geographic literacy, all the more so. If not for the politician’s mistaken belief that the “Manhattanization” of his city includes New Yorkers winning the vote in San Francisco elections, the nothing-to-hide politician might have earned my support. Rare is the honest politician who bares all.
It’s plain strange to campaign on the East Coast for an office on the West Coast, to say nothing of doing so with one’s junk staring at passersby. Davis regards nudity as “more comfortable, natural, and free.” For whom? Sadly, the people who most want to be naked are the people we most want to be clothed. Their freedom oppresses us.
