folsom street fair 

The Labor Day weekend holiday is upon us and wouldn't you know it? Peter LaBarbera does something nutsy.

The WWE has Wrestlemania.

The NFL has the Superbowl.

And Peter LaBarbera has Folsom Street Fair.

You can set your watch by it. Every time the San Francisco street fair rolls around, LaBarbera provides his version of publicity for the event by “condemning it.” Then he goes to event, making sure to take pictures of alleged gross acts and providing “loving commentary” even sometimes informing us on the exact length of time those “freakie deakies” in said picture took to do the deed.

This year, LaBarbera takes the following quote from conservative radio so-and-so Michael Savage to make a ridiculous point:

“San Francisco is a microcosm of the illness called liberalism. It’s the least tolerant city in the country. It’s the meanest city in the country.”

I don't know about that. A city which hosts an alleged butt-naked festival doesn't necessarily strike me as intolerant.

But Michael Savage is the same person who lost his television show on MSNBC after telling a caller that he should catch AIDS and die.

So I guess if anyone knows about intolerance, it's him.

The Folsom Street Fair isn't exactly my cup of tea but apparently a lot of people (gay and straight – funny how LaBarbera always tries to omit the “heterosexual perversions” at Folsom) seem to enjoy it.

And in all honesty, LaBarbera seems to enjoy it too.

One of these days, somebody is going to take a picture of him attending these fairs. I wonder what he wears while in attendance, that is if he is dressed at all.

Editor's note – Never mind about that last sentence. Just writing it made me ill.
