I have no doubt 55 percent of Toronto wants to see him gone; the question is, how are those 55 percent distributed amongst the city’s ridings? Last election, roughly 200% of downtown voted against Ford and he still won. :-(

Gotta love how he ran on “Cut the gravy train” and now we learn he’s hired special advisors on his mayoral staff that do nothing but help run his football team.

Meanwhile, programs that help at-risk youth = “Hug-a-Thug”. Programs that help at-risk youth help Ford win football games = essential good work. Blech.

So basically Rob Ford is Bobby Newport from Parks and Rec, minus the good nature, but he actually won the election.

Sort of. Rob Ford ran on vague promises of ‘cleaning up City Hall’ by eliminating wasteful spending, implying a level of incompetence and/or corruption that he would also fix. Somehow.

The funny thing is that the Fords have always been so critical of people they perceive as being lazy or not working hard (union members, protesters, etc) and extol the virtues of hardworking people. Rob may work hard, but not necessarily at his actual job.

Uh oh, MGK. You’ve unleashed the monster now. Brother Doug will be along shortly to “come after you,” same way he threatened the very female (and, I believe, pregnant) G&M reporter who wrote today’s story on Ford’s special assistants.

For real, how is it The Daily Show hasn’t done a segment yet on these two bozos? There cant be anything in the US that compares to this level of idiocy.

Mitchell: Well, they also managed to mostly miss Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick racking up 48 felony corruption charges, so it might just be an issue of them focusing on Federal level US politics. (And New York City politics, due to their filming location)

Mitchell: You’re kidding, right? This isn’t even news in the U.S. “I avoided my job as mayor to coach football” is something that’ll get you elected in America.

Y’know, when I read about Ford blowing off a meeting to coach football, my first thought was, “Oooooooooh, can’t wait to see what mightygodking has to say about that.” Thanks for not disappointing. :)

The man is a bloody joke. An idiot. A buffoon. He could pass for Mussolini on a bad day. And his dolt of a brother Doug is just as dense.

I never would have thought Toronto could have voted in a mayor who was more of a joke than Mel Lastman. This guy makes Lastman look like the most dignified, refined guy in the room.
