Chris Daly in a Monday entreaty to colleagues included a rebuttal to a letter in Michela Alioto-Pier's "A Case For Censure," which she distributed to supervisors last week (more in Tuesday's paper). In that packet, a letter from homeowner Peter Scott, who attended the controversial hearing, urged censure. ... "Please sit him down and teach him how to deal politely with others," Scott wrote. ... But Daly on Monday provided a transcript of an earlier message from Scott to his office in which Scott apologized for the "mob mentality" of the crowd at the hearing and affirmed his support for Daly and the supervisor's efforts to protect housing. ... Reached late Monday afternoon, Scott said he was embarrassed to have taken both sides. ... "His behavior was really bad," Scott said. "Later on I thought, 'How does it feel to have a whole room booing and hissing you?' If that was typical behavior [by Daly] I'd say censure, if it was aberrant, I'd say not." ...

    Ballplayers are consistently exposed to entire crowds hissing and booing without freaking out. Only on a rare occasion does one lose their cool and then it is such an aberration that it makes headlines on Sportscenter for weeks.

    Chris Daly is the Ron Artest of SF politics. If he doesn't get help now . . .
