Video: Vote Pat McGann For Mayor. He Owns A Suit And Is Taller Than Emanuel!

What are you looking for in a mayoral candidate? Do you want someone who won't sell the city piecemeal to corporate and business interests? Do you want a candidate who will invest in our public schools? Or do you want a candidate who is the height of an average American male with an Irish surname, has all of his fingers intact and can make finger guns as tight as Joe Biden's scarf removal game?

Meet comedian Pat McGann, who "owns a suit and a pen." (Four pens, in fact.) He speaks at least three words of Spanish and has support all across the South Side. (Ringer? Ding ding, motherfucker!)

He's taller than Mayor Emanuel.


And he has a hilarious (parody) campaign video.

Voters have gone to the polls for less.
