For those who watch California State Senator Carole Migden even from a distance, it’s not hard to imagine Migden screaming, “I’m a Senator!” soon after rear-ending a motorist

The allegation may not be true…

The witness, who also said Migden appeared “to be out of it”, may have lied to better his chance to be on TV, he might be a Migden political opponent, or he may consider her choice of colors overstated…

But she does, one knows, require office visitors to stand as she enters to confer (for dignity of the Office she holds, uh huh)…

With such brusque style viewed as arrogant by many North Bay voters in her last race, and the Midas touch of incumbency cold handed in Marin and Sonoma Counties, the woman faces formidable challengers hailing from San Francisco… And the heavy handed San Francisco Board of Supervisors president may jump in, too…

All hailing from minority vote land given that Marin and Sonoma cast more amens than pert San Francisco…

North Bay luminaries Joe Nation, Kerry Mazzoni, Pam Torliatt, and Susan Adams say no thanks (Adams has endorsed Migden)… Phil Kranenburg, a Marin Community College Trustee, may throw his hat at the rack, but has said he will not decide until end of summer when fundraising competitive with SFers could be a touch difficult…

Attitudinal disposition, this corner reminds, of San Francisco diverges from majority voters somewhere in a place calling itself the North Bay…

Look for San Francisco Police Commissioner Joe Alioto Veronese, newest contender, to dispense with Carole Migden quickly going head-to-head with Mark Leno…

NEVER A BLUE SAN FRANCISCO DAY

Take ten minutes to be happy you yourself have a warm place to go to the bathroom, be glad the richest guy in Asia is named Ka-Shing, and go out and make sure Carole Migden, Mark Leno, and Aaron Peskin got milk… it might make them nod off…
