The Stranger’s Dan Savage announced he is running for mayor against incumbent Greg Nickels. Savage, who makes his home here on lovely Capitol Hill, joins an uncrowded field — the only other announced challengers at this time are somebody named Norman Sigler and former NBA player James Donaldson. Savage’s qualifications? He has balls. From Savage’s statement:
That no one has the balls to challenge Nickels this time out tells us nothing about Greg and everything about the contents of Peter, Tim, Nick, and Richard’s underpants. No balls.
But as chatter on Twitter indicates, the groundswell of attention Savage might have expected from the announcement has been modest. Is it possible that people are skeptical of Savage’s intentions?
