Everybody else would have been fired and arrested. Its politicians that get away with drug use, intoxication on the job, assault, bullying drunk driving, etc.

I’m sure you mean oxycontin and not oxytocin


#5

ah, either you made the ninja edit or I’m seeing things


#8

I can’t look at this doofus without wishing Chris Farley was still alive.

These details are appalling. They would be appalling if this was your insurance salesman, high school teacher or realtor - but this is not the way the mayor of a large city should behave. I hate Ford, but he really needs help - but will not even be able to get help until he acknowledges that he has a problemPROBLEM.


#10

Yeah. You’ve made this comment before. It amounts to like 50% of your input here. Combining it with the ‘Cawy’ thing makes you look like a laughable bumblefuck.


#11

No you’re wrong, I saw someone using it just recently.


#12

“Santorum” was not spread in a day!


#13

He was blissed out on the love


#14

How many posts about Rob “Laughable Bumblefuck” Ford have you copy/pasted that to, now?

Rob Ford is trying to hack the ballot box using the integer overflow. He knows the prototype for the mayors office is defined as so:

class Mayor {
   signed char electability;
...

and if he can just go that bit further, smoke a bit more crack, be caught in flagrante delicto with three hookers… his electability rating will wrap round to being the most popular man in the capitol.

I see about 10,000 hits on google for “laughable bumblefuck” actually

Let’s be honest: every country has had their fair share of alcoholic / drug-addict / womaniser politicians and their cadres of shadowy aides with dubious connections. Before the Internet Age, it was much easier for this sort of people to hide their problems.

Now, there’s nowhere to hide. Everybody has a camera on himself, ready to produce some nice blackmail material. Everybody carries huge amounts of compromising data on himself, ready to be lost on trains or quietly snatched away.

The elected Mayor of a major metropolis like Toronto surely knows all this… ? Even if he doesn’t, what about the party operatives, the activists who ran his campaigns, his colleagues in government – surely they knew this man was a wreck? Why did they invest their political capital on him? Boris Eltsin was a fearless and brutal political operative before vodka got the best of him in his late years; Ford’s parable was way too quick to be unpredictable.

De-mayor.

I thought it was reading, another restaurant ‘staffer’ (a coworker) demanded she give her name. I should cut back on the nutmeg with the espresso’s.

Congrats on not mentioning crack this time. Maybe we can drop the name calling next time too?


#21

it takes ages for santorum to spread, with the surface tension…

Rasputina’s looking eerily prescient…

Ooh, it’s scrambled eggs what he says
He accuses me of treachery
Got the nine lies, got the wide eyes,
got a failing grade in chemistry
If you count back to the balcony
when all we saw was a mystery
of a blonde-haired boy brought his mother joy
with his pedigree and family tree
Oh, lay it all out on a wicker couch
that you wove in a loony bin
Cut it out, it’s a second-round bout
not the way of a gentleman
Ah, give it up, get a job,
take a pill and leave me be
He’s got a synapse lapse he don’t think he has
but it’s been proven empirically
“If they take something precious from me,
I’m gonna take something precious from them.”
Oh now he’s losing his constituency,
we thought “Oh, this could never happen again.”
If I take something precious from him,
he try to take something precious from me
There’s a battle in his head that he cannot win
There’s a man that he could never be
Oh no
Way to go
He’s the mayor
Oh, I’m quite tired of this lunatic
Why must we suffer 'cuz the mayor’s sick?
He say: “All abandon from this sinking ship.”
and he’s off on another trip
No, he don’t care about environment
He has made this a shitty place
My interest rate shrinks at a rapid pace
compounded daily on my worried face
“If they take something precious from me,
I’m gonna take something precious from them.”
Oh now he’s losing his constituency,
we thought “Oh, this could never happen again.”
If I take something precious from him,
he try to take something precious from me
There’s a battle in his head that he cannot win
There’s a man that he could never be
Oh no
Way to go (2x)
He’s the mayor
“If they take something precious from me,
I’m gonna take something precious from them.”
Oh now he’s losing his constituency,
we thought “Oh, this could never happen again.”
(You’re gonna hang your head and cry)
If I take something precious from him,
he try to take something precious from me
There’s a battle in his head that he cannot win
There’s a man that he could never be
(go ahead, go ahead and cry)
You’re gonna hang your head and cry
Your gonna hang your head and cry
you’re gonna cry
(He’s the mayor)
(Oh no, way to go, he’s the mayor)
