Post-partisanship, indeed.

Few topics were off limits at a pre-Gay Pride Parade breakfast Sunday that brought a bevy of the city’s movers and shakers to the the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

Supervisor Tom Ammiano had a suggestion on how Mayor Gavin Newsom and Supervisor Chris Daly might settle their long-running feud, which reached a head last week when Daly raised the allegation that Newsom had used cocaine. Newsom angrily denied ever taking the drug.

“In terms of gay pride,” Ammiano said, “I think that Newsom and Daly should show that they have pride and have make-up sex, don’t you?”

The crowd of about 300 burst into laughter.

The breakfast was organized by the Alice B. Toklas Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club. The keynote speaker was Elizabeth Edwards, wife of presidential hopeful John Edwards.

Newsom took the mic at one point, offering no comment Ammiano’s suggestion. Daly was not in attendance.
