NBC Chicago Satirizes Carol Moseley Braun Campaign

2011_1_6_braun.jpg Ted McClelland has posted probably the best piece of satire to come out of this mayoral campaign over at NBC Chicago, on the self-destruction of Carol Moseley Braun's campaign. The premise of the piece is the Braun Campaign fires Braun herself and brings aboard Patricia Van Pelt Watkins, who “all of Carol’s assets and none of her liabilities,” all over a cheese plate and beers at Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap.

The scope of who gets zinged by McClelland here is broad. He takes shots at Braun campaign manager (and Daley ally) Victor Reyes; Neil Steinberg and Rahm Emanuel also get the McClelland treatment.
