BLOG! by JM Dobies is pleased to announce that it is endorsing Brewster McCracken in the Austin Mayoral race. Nothing against any of the other candidates, but McCracken gets the nod based on two things: he's pro-arts and mostly because Brewster McCracken is such a great name.
Now, Lee Leffingwell is a pretty cool name, too, but it's just not in the same league as McCracken's, which brings to mind Robert Altman's 1972 film Brewster McCloud, as well as a bunch of filthy puns. Brewster also looks a bit like fellow Texan Matthew McConnaghey, who we'll forgive for all those shitty romantic comedies because of his brilliant performance as Wooderson in the made-in-Austin classic Dazed and Confused.
So, Austinites, when election day rolls around, pick McCracken!
