If they really believed that Ford would be good, then they made a pretty stupid choice. Is there no one among the conservative cohort who thought "do we seriously want to be associated with this guy, and do we really want him to be running the city?"

That should have been followed by "can't we find someone else?"

Other than instilling a higher degree of divisiveness, the "shake things up" strategy has failed miserably.
