Beyond Obama in '08, local politicos are already talking about 2009 elections here in LA. From Controller to Council, here comes Chick. Who the hell is going to oppose the powerhouse of Mayor V? Wendy and Weiss will leave council and try their hands at Controller and City Attorney.

But there are some people, like those who call Weiss "Wacko Jacko," that are petitioning someone else to run for City Attorney in 2009. In what could be the cutest petition ever, here is why Bob Hertzberg should run for City Attorney in 2009:

  • "He's an attorney so that helps"
  • You can call him Bobzilla
  • He "always has a good ideas.
  • "Plus he's just a big, fun goofy guy.

So if you live in Council District 5 (mainly West LA) and are going, "Jack who?" then maybe Bobzilla is your man.
"Run Bob Run."
