Pat McGann for mayor? Says he’ll stand tall against Rahm Emanuel

Comedian Pat McGann, who previously joked he was running for 19th Ward alderman on a platform of stocking potholes with fish, is at it again. This time, he’s setting his sights on someone else in City Hall — Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

“Sure, a week ago I wanted to be alderman,” McGann says. “And then I realized, I have a suit. I have a pin. And I have much bigger aspirations.”

“I’m the height of an adult male,” McGann says, with the accompanying graphic:

He continues:

“I’m not a horribly maimed freak,” he says.
