Stay tuned later today when he apologizes for knocking over that biatch who got in his way.

Whoever was the second voice in that video sounded uncomfortably like Nancy Grace.  That almost made me side with the mayor.

Though that wasn't really much of a tackle.
Though, still, watch where you're going Tubby McCrackhead

Rob Ford is just challenging Southern Chivalry:

I enjoy the idea that Rob Ford isn't actually a crazy, loudmouthed drunk but a performance artist that's doing a Dark Side/Wizard of Oz-esque parallelization between Toronto's mayorship and Ludacris' Word of Mouf.

What no one realized was the guy walking behind Ford just whispered into his ear "Hey that chick in green has some rocks and loves to party!"

If we swapped-out Rob Ford for Rush Limbaugh, what differences would we see?

Limbaugh hasn't been elected to anything

/Lord, please tell me I'm right on this one.

I read the headline thinking "surely it means 'tackle' in the figurative sense."

Nope.

God this story is just awesome sauce. I don't ever want it to end.

Upon further review, it wasn't as bad as I though.  it didn't seem like he was trying to knock her over, he just ran into her running for something else.  he even tried to hold her up.

I'm kind of sad that Chris Farley isn't alive because Rob Ford is the role Chris Farley was born to play.

I love this man.

No, but otherwise they share a lot of similarities: drug abuse, self-righteousness, easy to anger, as graceful as a charging rhinoceros...

I think Rob Ford is playing the logical extension of the Chris Farley roles, like Tommy Boy/Black Sheep. Has anyone seen David Spade hanging around with Rob lately?

naughtyrev: I love this man.


We don't.  He's free to whatever other city wants him.  I'm pretty sure every Torontonian will chip in for freight.

Limbaugh wouldn't be caught dead with his arm around a black man.

They had Bobby Moniyhan playing Rob Ford on SNL, and it was an incredibly wasted opportunity.  It was him just saying "outrageous" things (that weren't even as crazy as the real Rob Ford talking about eating pussy at a press conference), in a bad Hoser accent that sounded nothing like the real guy.

Illegal substitution of a tackle.
 
2013-11-18 05:16:26 PM  
Thank God this guy rid Toronto of all those left-wing potheads.
 
2013-11-18 05:18:35 PM  
it's not real. the canadians saw that people watch wrestling and think it's sport, so they've done the same thing for politics. this ford guy is the bad guy. but he's not really a bad guy, he's just playing a kind of comically inept bad guy. wait and see, he's going to come out in his underoos and start body-slamming people

THIS.  What a waste.  They should have gone for a Tina Fey/Sarah Palin thing, with Moynihan quoting Ford.  Ford is a joke in and of himself.  Or was.  Now, he's just a dangerous asshole who is likely to get violent.

This just gets better every day.

His remarks just before they started voting today kinda back that up.  Look for Ford Nation to spin up the war machine on the campaign.  I bet they overspend on the campaign by a couple of million.

Didn't look like he was tackling the councilwoman, but rather that there was someone else behind her that he wanted to get at and he basically just ran her over in his rush to get past.  I only say this because he didn't appear to be looking at her, he was looking over her shoulder.

Yeah I think that's what was happening. I've seen him use the physical intimidation threat in council before, he's a bully.
 
2013-11-18 05:41:39 PM  
There was an op-ed piece in my local paper the other day about how Rob Ford is being bullied and how it sends the wrong message to addicts. Instead of trying to get help, they'll all be reluctant to change and stay in their drug-using ways, because as they've seen with Rob Ford, bullying and name-calling is about all they can expect.


It was a piece so asinine and ludicrous I was moved to comment on their page, using my Facebook login.

I mean, this man is behaving like a spoiled grade-schooler on the playground who refuses to come in from recess.

And who also smokes crack.
 
2013-11-18 05:46:05 PM  
That boy ain't right in the head.
 
2013-11-18 05:48:15 PM  
that was less tackle and more bull-in-a-china-shop.

he's still an asshole; don't get me wrong.
 
2013-11-18 05:48:49 PM  
Who could play him? Jonah Hill. Jack Black. Jim Belushi.
 
2013-11-18 05:53:12 PM  
Yeah, that wasn't a tackle. Looked like ran over her in his haste to get past, and he realized too late he was about to run her down. He was, after all, doing the majority of the work keeping her upright.

On another note, this guy is still awesome.

Awesome like you want him for YOUR mayor?

Awesome like I want him as SOMEONE ELSE'S mayor for the entertainment value.

The story was his brother was getting into it with some of the "C.U.P.E. workers" in the gallery.

Ford was playing John Belushi
 
2013-11-18 06:06:46 PM  
Ford's body guard guy was filming the crowd, to make sure they catch all those evil union guys in the gallery skipping work.
 
2013-11-18 06:12:48 PM  
"Biatch tripped me up."
 
2013-11-18 06:23:16 PM  
Not exactly a tackle...
 
2013-11-18 06:24:45 PM  
That's interference, pure and simple.  She was nowhere near the puck.

John Belushi

Quite unfortunate.  SNL would have a field day with this guy.
 
2013-11-18 06:27:34 PM  
This guy is going to end up killing himself.. I hope he doesn't but he just seems like the type who will eat a shotgun..  I bet he has all types of repressed memories of being the laughing stock fat kid bubbling up right now..
 
2013-11-18 06:27:49 PM  
He is the gift that keeps on giving.
 
2013-11-18 06:27:59 PM  
Mayor Rob Ford is in the news so often now, they're going to have to find a way to abbreviate his name, to save time and space. I recommend they go with "Mayo RoFo".
 
2013-11-18 06:28:53 PM  
This guy is awesome. I hope he never gives in.
