Geez, Cienna, give it a rest already, the poor guy.

He enjoys smoking crack and eating pussy.

One out of two isn't so bad record after all.

(If only he weren't a rightwinger.....)

..."a grim lesson on what it's like to be Canadian." That line makes me so happy!

@1: The fact that he's conservative doesn't really detract from the unique and refreshing perspective he's brought to the mayor's office, as far as I'm concerned.

He's a crude, corrupt, criminal, abusive, rage-a-holic, possibly spouse-beating tea-bagger asshole, a disreputable public drunk whose debased behavior only distracts from the awfulness of his policy ideas. When you say he "enjoys eating pussy", as if he had been discussing a generous act for the enjoyment of a consenting lover, you forget or elide that he was make a crudely sexual verbal assault on the dignity of a female underling - not rhapsodizing the joys a couple could find in the bedchamber.

Don't knock him till you've taken this Ford out for a test drive, Madrid. Like @3 says, he reportedly takes care of the ladies.

I haven't been following this story, but you're description sounds like a public hanging would be a deserving punishment, televised. Maybe I'm just a nightmare dreamer like Sienna.

@3: He's also a wife-beater.

We get that when a rich white guy does crack it's considered hilarious. Enough already.

The beleaguered wimmins of Toronto are now begging the crack-crazed Jabba to stop trying to go down on them.

He who controls the crack, controls the Universe!

Rob Ford in chambers:…

And in today's embarrassment, Ford can be seen on video charging across the chamber to physically assault a female city councillor - and, at that, a five-foot tall lady who's a good bit older than him (I don't know how old she is, but she was a school trustee more than thirty years ago, after a career as a teacher)

There's video of him driving drunk and pulling over to the side of a busy street, hopping out, and pissing right there on the sidewalk, in broad daylight, with people around.

Yesterday he gave an interview with Fox and claimed that he would be Prime Minister someday. He described how Justin Trudeau, currently a possibility for PM, cannot be allowed to take that job because he admits to smoking marijuana -- and smoking marijuana is illegal -- you can't have someone who admits to illegal drug use become PM! (Spot the cognitive dissonance).

Also yesterday, his brother Doug claimed that Rob is really a super liberal, and when he was elected all the newspapers called him "the white Obama". This is ludicrously, obviously false, of course.

Today he saw Doug arguing with some other councilors and ran across the floor to help him fight them, in the process slamming into a female councilor and pushing past her hard enough to knock her down -- assault, as far as I can tell (but he will not be arrested, and will pay no penalty. He never does.) They continue to strut around the chamber, screaming and physically threatening everyone in their path.

He beats his wife. More than once. She's a drunk and probably a drug addict as well, of course.

This isn't going to end without bloodshed, mark my words. My prediction is, Rob's going to grab a kid off the street and pull his head off and drink the spurting blood on live TV. Or maybe something with a gun. You know the Fords are armed to the teeth -- they've been running a drug gang for close to thirty years up there in Etobicoke.

I'm betting it's less than 2 months before he has his own lucrative late-night talk show. And everyone will watch it. That's just how things work.

@ 16, I can only imagine that the propagandists at Le Fox Nouvelles Canada must’ve worn themselves out replacing the (C) with an (L) after his name in every frame of the broadcast.
