Mayor Quan chickens out the back door, lays egg...?
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 10:21 PM by kpete
After saying she would speak to at least 1,000 people at the Occupy Oakland protest, Mayor Jean Quan has left City Hall without talking.

She came to the General Assembly,
and left without speaking? Why?

1. She evidently was told by the GA that they would add her to the list and that she'd have to wait her
turn. That's Democracy, don't know if she's used to it or not.

2. Sounds like Queen Jean didn't like having to yield to the rabble.

5. Fire the chief of police or resign
Either she's got a mutiny on her hands, or she's a fraud. Which is it?

7. While listening to the prior speakers, she probably realized whatever she had planned to say...
...would only ring hollowly, especially with Mr. Olsen's attacker still at large.

8. And knew she couldn't speak enough from the heart to say something useful...
Times have changed. #Occupy is not about her, does not need her.
