Barack Obama made his last scheduled visit to San Francisco and the Bay Area this weekend, since he can rest assured that even if proved a card-carrying member of the walking undead, area voters would shuffle off to vote for him in November, regardless. So why bother? Because he wants brains money! And he got it, with a single-event record $7.8 million according to venture capitalist and cub campaign reporter Steve Jurvetson of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, who along with his wife Karla Jurvetson have pitched in $9,200 so far, the maximum allowable. The photograph gives me reason to suspect that Obama might reach across the aisle — and the penumbra which separates the living from eternity — for a running mate, and Zombie Ronald Reagan is available we hear.
