There's no mystery as to why the National Republican Campaign Committee hates Nancy Pelosi, but their dislike for San Francisco is a bit puzzling. Not only did San Francisco seem very nice during my brief visit, it's an enormous economic success story. The San Francisco metropolitan area has the fourth-highest median household income in the country, with its Bay Area partner San Jose coming in at No. 3. Metro San Francisco is in a tie for having the third-highest pay for low-wage workers, and it's fourth in median wages and third in 90th percentile wages.
