Crack is whack/politically hilarious

Until this whole Rahm Emanuel mayoral spectacle grabbed the nation’s attention, I’m pretty sure that we had all decided to let the city of Chicago have a whole pass on the democracy thing and just function like Egypt did until a week ago.

Of course, the people on the streets of Cairo are agitating for more democratic rights, where as in Chicago Rahm Emanuel didn’t even bother to show up to the mayoral debate. And ya wanna know what happened? During the debate Carol Moseley Braun, the nation’s first black female senator, said her opponent Patricia Van-Pelt Watkins didn’t know about her record because “for the past 20 years…(she was) strung out on crack.”

Damn! Wouldn’t American democracy be so much better if it all functioned like an episode of Maury? The Founding Fathers thought so; if that doesn’t inspire confidence in American style representative democracy among the Egyptians, I don’t know what will.
