(Newser) – San Francisco Board of Supervisors candidate George Davis stripped buck naked in Times Square today to campaign for the right to be nude in public. Davis spoke out against a 2013 San Francisco public nudity ban introduced by his opponent, Scott Wiener. His basic argument: Nudity is a form of expression. After his speech, Davis conducted interviews stark naked. Davis ran for mayor of San Francisco in 2007 and for District 10 supervisor in 2010. He has been arrested twice for public nudity.

Most everybody, including most women, look far better with clothes on. Photographers spend hours on lighting and post correction making women looking fabulous. Spray tanned, Photoshopped, stomachs sucked in, air brushed models are not real but do look awesome. Thats why men prefer pics over real life. Real life naked women look stupid.

I think crazy men should have the right to expose their shortcomings in public, simply for the entertainment value.

So…if I decide to run for office in New York City, Ill be sure to campaign on Market St. in San Francisco. Im really not sure why, but well, I still will.
