How NOT to conduct a mayoral campaign

Not content to alienate people in Austin, Brewster McCracken has decided to tick off the entire city of St. Louis as well. His latest ad (referenced in this St. Louis Post-Dispatch column) references the decline of St. Louis's urban core. Not surprisingly, the residents of St. Louis aren't thrilled with Mr. McCracken, as seen in this KMOV report.

Mr. McCracken's ad is no longer embeddable (although it was previously...go figure), but you can see it here.

Note: the above is not intended to endorse any specific candidate for Austin mayor.
