If you are serious about keeping your dad Pete from joining the by-now almost endless list of good folks hoping to squeeze McGinn out, you will have to engage in some sort of scandal at Yale that will make him seem both a bad parent and some sort of agent of the dreaded 1%. Maybe rope one of your billionaire's-child classmates into some sort of plutocrats-conspiring-against-hipsters thing.

Thank you Paul - your hard unpaid work has been appreciated!

(Are you the squirrel rescue guy? BECAUSE THAT WAS ADORABLE!!)

It was nice seeing you at the beginning at University Heights and the end at the Very Beary Christmas.

Yaletide Greetings!

P.S. My dad is running for mayor in 2013.

I wonder who your dad is. Let's see, "Holmes". Couldn't be former heavy weight champion Larry Holmes, could it? Katie Holmes would make a lovely mayor, but she's probably not your dad. Sherlock Holmes? No, he's a fictional character.

Hmm.... wait a minute!

HOLY SHIT PETE IS RUNNING FOR MAYOR IN 2013?!! HELL FUCKING YES!!!!!!!

@10 Mayoral races are more affected by extreme weather events and how they are dealt with, at least since the late 80's in this town.

Wait, Holmes, you can't leave; I haven't said NEARLY enough mean things about you yet! God, I can't remember off the top of my head what inane, hateful, dimwitted opinions are yours, even! Surely there must be some. Ah, well. Just more vitriol for the next poor sucker, I guess.

Oh, right, you're the Yalie. Here's one: Harvard man and a Yale man run into each other in the toilets at the white shoe law firm they both work for. The Yale man stops to wash his hands on his way out, and sniffs "at Yale they taught us to wash our hands after using the lavatory". The Harvard man replies "at Harvard, they taught us not to piss on our hands". (I believe that joke dates from 1883).

Take care, and remember to get your booster shots soon. There's no telling what may be crawling on you after having spent time in that office (you didn't use the lavatory, did you?)

2013: Seattle Mayor
2016: Attorney General

Please pass it on to your dad. Also: go Yale. I grew up in Bridgeport/Stratford and lived just outside Yale before moving to Seattle. Harvard sucks.

Modern Pizza, Sally's, or Pepe?

@14 Pepe's! (But really, the white clam at sally's..mmm!) CT is the true home of pizza! - Ridgefield

@15 you know you can get Modern at Safeco now? Down on the lower level behind center field. Of course, no clam...

@14, Harvard may suck, but Yale swallows. New Haven is for sleeping late and learning the Cole Porter songbook. If you're working harder than that, you may just as well have gone to Harvard anyway.

Very funny, Paul. I thought you'd be one of the first to know that your dad is committed to running for a second term. Now, don't you have some website work to do?

@8: The Paul Holmes/seandr sex scandal was apparently lurid enough to shut down the whole Pete Holmes mayoral campaign before it ever really began, per comment @19.

Paul Holmes, does your father share the same favorable attitude toward motor scooters that you and I do? Did he think the Vehicle Licensing Fee equally applicable to Lincoln Navigators and Yamaha Vinos was a good idea?

Thanks, Paul--you're paying your own tuition next semester, and Scooter--the squirrel, not the Buddy 125--gets your room.
XO,
