Thanks to JDan over at MediaStrut, I think it’s safe to say I already have the FacePalm of the Week for this week…even though it’s Monday:
Hold on…the President has something to say:
Seriously, what the fuck is this about? I get it, politics gets testy sometimes. I’m pretty sure Carol Moseley Braun didn’t take kindly to Watkins saying she hasn’t been around Chicago. But to bring up crack/cocaine usage from 30 years ago….AT THE DEBATE? In what political playbook is that a good idea? Even Rahm Emanuel is watching this saying “Tone it down a notch”. I mean think about it. Marion Barry got caught smoking crack WHILE in office and that never stopped him from getting reelected. Did Braun really think bringing up crack use from 30 years ago would have any affect on the audience she was in front of? And let’s keep it real, as long as Rahm’s name is on the ballot, this is really no more than a competition to see who gets to work in his office. Right now, Braun shoot herself in the face with this bullshit
Real talk, I think Moseley-Braun is using the same PR people Chris Brown and Kwame Brown use. That’s the only way this makes any sense.
