I didn’t read all 50+ comments so sorry if someone beat me in pointing this out: to say Mittens is “not visibly scary or crazy” doesn’t seem entirely accurate to me: the desperate, phony attempt to seem likable that he projects in every interview seems pretty scary to me, as well as very reminiscent of W.

They are threatening public safety with a First Aid tent! Oakland should shut this [...]
