It's a bad sign when the Oakland City Council (and its participating public -- see notes in the comments below) takes the "worst behaved political activity" award on a day where not only were Chris Daly and Gavin Newsom scheduled to be in the same room but there was a Taiwanese political protest in town. (We didn't think anyone could outfight a Taiwanese politician!)

But no -- today's swearing in for new Oakland mayor Ron Dellums turned into the kind of three-ring circus we usually associate only with the SF Board of Supes -- booing, jeering, and pleading for order. Bring it on!
