Rob Ford is a train wreck.
Sure, everyone deserves a second, third maybe even fourth chance at times, an opportunity to admit your failures & focus on rehabilitation and personal growth BUT there's a point where you need to be honest with yourself and the person you are constantly making up excuses to excuse.

I just don't think he's taking this problem with alcohol & drugs seriously enough to deserve a second chance.

would you vote for this guy?

What do you want me to turn into, Rob Ford?


something tells me Ford's not a small-batch bourbon kind of guy. Seems more MD 20/20.



Ahh... the old MD 20/20. Good stuff...

aintitahoot: Heads-up from the WTFark video team here:

We may do a WTFark video about this submission and may pick one or two comments from this thread to use in the making of the video. If your comment is used, you will be credited (by handle) at the end of the video. If you have a problem with that and want your handle/comment ignored, then please let us know here. Otherwise, we will assume all are fair game. If you are the subby and want credit, please let us know here as well.

Here's how it works. We will keep track of whose comments we use and when you reach a certain threshold (five times, maybe) we will give you a small gift as a token of gratitude. Say, a Fark bar towel and a free month of TotalFark. If, as time goes on, and we seem to be using more and more of your comments, we will up the ante with some premium liquor for those of you who partake or something else equally appealing for those of you who don't.

The videos will live in the right sidebar here on fark.com and in their natural habitat on ora.tv/wtfark. Click if you like them. Don't if you don't.

We thank you for your support.

So...those of us on mobile will not be able to see any of this, is that correct?

There is a Canadian Mayors conference in Ottawa tomorrow that should have some pretty high quality sound-bites.
Nenshi will be there for contrast.  Ford will be working pretty much without a net.  It should be glorious.

Ryker's Peninsula: When you refer to yourself as "we", you have a serious weight problem.


His campaign manager is his brother Doug who is also a current City Councillor.  Doug ALWAYS says "we" also, like they are co-mayors or something.  It's a little creepy.

*They couldn't find a strategist that would work with/for them.  They were so cheap with the guy that ran Rob's 2010 election, most of his payment was he got to keep Rob's voter list.  That guy with Rob's list is helping John Tory's campaign this election.

This will be the first one he's bothered to go to, having deemed the last three a waste of time.  This meeting is largely about public housing, so he's going so he can beg the feds for more money for more subways that there are no actual plans for.  If he isn't laughed at openly, I will be disappoint.

I'm so glad the word got out that the subway expansion is a shiat idea. It still blows my mind me how he got so many councillors to vote for it.

He's probably going to hook up with Marion Barry for the "God damn biatch set me up!" convention.  I understand Bill Clinton is going to be an honorary speaker.

It makes for a good sound-bite.  And on it's face, sure it's a great idea, lets build subways everywhere, woohoo!
But relative to the LRT plan, that covered pretty much all of Scarborough (and had budgeted financing in place) vs. a three stop subway that covers a single strip of Scarborough for just 7kms and costs a billion dollars more.  He must have something really dirty on Stintz for her to have flip/floped on it, there is a really good pro LRT op-ed written by her less that two years ago.

Oh, it's not just an issue. It's a lifetime subscription.


Subscription, hell--dare I say it, Rob Ford has not mere issues or subscriptions but the farking Library and Archives of Canada at this rate.  Possibly the Queen's Printing House for the whole of the Commonwealth of Nations, even.  Henry Earl, were he immediately transported from the warm bosom of a Lexington jail (where he is sleeping off his fifteen-thousandth-odd-and-counting public intoxication arrest) to the Mayor's seat in Toronto, would probably be MORE functional at this rate than Rob Ford.  At least his drunken hilarity would involve a bit less hanging out with white supremacists and claiming "I did not see that coming!" when pointed out :D
