    ^What's the point? Rob Ford is just one of us 2.8 million folks that live here. We all got jobs to do ... RF is perhaps the funniest man in Canada right now. Give the bum a smoke will ya!

    Holy crap! This is too much too process! Papers are going to have to release multiple front pages.

    The wiretaps are going to be more significant than the crack admission. It'll show him actively seeking drugs showing him yet again for a liar.

    This whole thing has gotten out of hand, some of that Fords fault, some the media. Everyone in Toronto is aware of this situation and everyone has already made up their mind. At this point the media and the Left's are really just talking to each other. I believe in forgiveness and the bottom line Ford is doing a good job as Mayor.

    I know how I will be voting next October 27th and I encourage Torontonians to think for themselves. Just because the media says you should be outraged doesn't mean you have to be.

    I wonder if the timing of his confession was in hopes the judge would show mercy?

Not sure if there's any significance to that from a legal POV, but i thought it was a strange thing to say. Perhaps he said it because people will start asking for his arrest based on what's depicted in the recording.
    No, he is now running a "drunken stupor" political defence- i.e., he said that he wants everyone to see the video so that they can see what a state he was in when it was recorded; this, to his mind, will show that he only made the 'mistake' of smoking crack because he was very drunk, which is far less reprehensible than smoking it because he likes it. (And, you will recall from last Sunday, "hopefully" he will stop getting very drunk repeatedly!)

    Well, my head is blown. I didn't think he'd admit it. And if I had to admit something like that, I'd have had a good stiff drink first too ...

    I wonder what he thinks will happen next. I think that he thinks this ends it. I don't think so. Surely the US media are now booking their flights to Toronto ...

    But in the end ... what's new? We all knew this already.

    It's a huge and courageous first step for Rob Ford. Hopefully he finds the help that he needs.

    If we dilute the effort it won't be as effective in my view. Odds are we will need it as much next Wednesday as today. And today is impossible to do well. Please help us keep it focused on next Wednesday.

    The rally has to happen today, even without being organized. I think it'll come together spontaneously if people just show up today chalking up the square. We don't have to wait for City Council to meet, they're there right now in their offices overlooking the square.

    Which really didn't need to happen since obviously he was impaired when he was in that video. He was smoking crack :/
