From the inauspicious location of the Trinity United Church of Christ--yes, President Obama's old church--former US Sen. Carol Mostly Clown, make that Carol Moseley Braun, referred to a minor candidate for mayor of Chicago--a position Braun is seeking--as a crack abuser. And would you believe that the target of Braun's accusation, Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins, is a community organizer? Ya gotta love Chicago.
"Patricia, the reason you didn't know who I was for the last 20 years is because you were strung out on crack," Braun scolded. "I was not strung out on crack. I don't have a record."
Oh, Carol Mostly Clown certainly has a record--not a good one. As for Van Pelt Watkins, she admits to being a former marijuana and cocaine abuser, but she says she has been clean for 32 years. And crack cocaine didn't exist 32 years ago.
