Cartoon Brett Mandel Patronizes Cartoon Michael Nutter

In case you aren't totally and completely interested in the city's budget, maybe this animated video will motivate you to care

There is no one in this city who cares more about Philadelphia’s budget than impassioned tax reformer Brett Mandel. While the former candidate for city controller is no stranger to kitschy online publicity — remember when he made a video game to fight The Tax Monster? — today the Scoop brings you his latest attempt to engage people. Yesterday, Mandel created an Auto-Tuned video featuring Mandel outright patronizing Michael Nutter for his budget plans. The obligatory “OMG Michael Nutter was once a DJ!” joke comes pretty early, but the real humor comes in around 1:30 when the Mandel ‘toon makes his Appalled Face. [YouTube]
