That’s what she said

The funniest part of the Keimach transcript was this part in the chit chatty section about  then Mayor Trish Spencer:

And Jill Keimach actually noted out loud something that everyone watching the City Council at the time would have noticed as well:

  1. So, since this is funny, who does SNL cast in those roles?

  2. I think it’s becoming apparent that Trish Spencer does not have the right temperament to serve in a political role again. I don’t know what’s change between 2014, when she beat Marie Gilmore for the mayor’s chair, to now, but there are far too many accounts – from people sharing their anecdotes on Facebook and even newspaper articles – of Trish being combative, hostile, confrontational, and unreasonable. Even this Keimach recording shows how Trish is difficult to work with to get anything done.

    While recovering from her bike injury, she accosted my friend at the Alameda Hospital and said very angrily – “Don’t you know who I am?? I AM MAYOR TRISH!” What’s shocking was, this was in December, one month after she lost her re-election (the one she never conceded). During the last election, she would angrily confront people who were tabling at the farmer’s market, and even dressed as a crab while dancing near the tunnel, and on other days screamed into passing cars with a megaphone – all for the sake of not wanting to help people who are less fortunate.

    There’s this fascinating video floating around on the Internet of Trish Spencer haranguing a voter at South Shore in a very hostile manner, where she was canvassing without a permit. Let’s not forget that her face and endorsement were plastered on all those “Yes on K” mailers from out-of-town corporate landlords, who spent over $400,000 to try and disrupt 50% of Alamedans who are renters, and her vote against minimum wage workers. Some of the actions she took have been just cruel against Alamedans, especially the less fortunate. But hey – I guess she’s fun to party with for a few days in Korea.

  3. Sometimes the worst people can still be fun. My facebook feed is full of people I had a blast with in high school and college who now post the cringiest stuff imaginable. I’ve had drinks with Trish. She is indeed fun to party with. That said, I will campaign hard for anyone running against her for anything because she is literally the worst!

  4. But if you want to stretch your limited entertainment dollar, how can you not give the nod to the El Chihuahua Mayor y Los Chihuahuas Juniors scene?:

    MALIA VELLA: So maybe just give him a check- in, and be like —

    * * * *

    MALIA VELLA: And sometimes it’s –

    JILL KEIMACH: Ahhhhhh.

    MALIA VELLA: — it’s exhausting.

    JIM ODDIE: I know.


    MALIA VELLA: But I really feel that this is the chihuahua that’s like going to keep barking at you until you’re like, give it a little attention, and let it know it’s okay, and this is what’s going on, and —

    JILL KEIMACH: Right. When does it get better (unintelligible)?

    JIM ODDIE: And then it runs around, and then it falls asleep, and then you can (unintelligible)

    MALIA VELLA: And then you’re good.

    JILL KEIMACH: Until he wakes up.

    JIM ODDIE: And (unintelligible)

    MALIA VELLA: Until it wakes up.

    JIM ODDIE: Well, yeah, then you’ve gotta –


    MALIA VELLA: And then you’ve got to do it all over again. But just don’t —
