One piece of news out of the mayoral race over the weekend. Of course I know there are those who will continue to support our former Senator, and there are those who weren't swayed by this theater one way or another. Anyway the short story is that Carol Moseley Braun went off on Patricia Van-Pelt Watkins at a mayoral forum at that famous Trinity United Church of Christ on Sunday. I'll let you be the judge as to whether or not this is a good temperament for an aspiring mayor.

BTW, courtesy of the Sun-Times a quote from our Alderman who is a Braun supporter:
“I’m not sure how much of it was fatigue. These campaigns tend to be physically draining, [but] I was very surprised. I don’t think it represented an ambassador of the United States government,” said Ald. Freddrenna Lyle (6th).The rest of that article is about some of the other gaffes Sen. Braun has made during the course of this mayoral campaign.
