Rob Ford interview on Fox News (warning: the volume is a tad loud)

Mayor Tommy Shanks! You look different. Okay, J.D.Roberts, now when will the music video start?

That woman must have been on cloud 9. Not only did she get on tv with her sign but she just happened to be sitting close enough to him to be in the same shot together. Amazing.
 
With all of Rob Ford's reported vices, it's a wonder gambling isn't among them, considering Woodbine's presence in his turf and the Fords' enthusiasm for casinos. (Then again, there's no way he'd pass unrecognized/untweeted in the Woodbine slots melee.)

Are you implying that gambling is bad?

:p


Hussling penny slots is kind of fun.
 
It fits the narrative put forth by his mother that his real problem is his weight, not drugs or alcohol.

I love the way he indignantly complained on the FOX interview about council stripping his powers, neglecting to mention that he said he would've done the same thing in their place.

Of course, it all fits perfectly - the admission about drug use is a past issue that he has already dealt with, it's all just above average drinking (below alcoholic) limits that need to be taken care of. Thankfully the physiological impacts of addiction aren't as easily wished away.

As to stripping him of his powers, well, considering the emperor is already wearing no clothes, there isn't much else that one can strip.

sorry, that train left months ago. A reasonable man with these indescretions would resign. The pressure needs to be kept on Ford until he does the reasonable thing. Until he resigns, have at him.

He won't resign ever. He's either going to get caught committing a crime or ride out his term in willful blindness.

Get back to work councillors.
 
I'm convinced RoFo suffers from DSM-IV Grade Narcissism:

Expects to be recognized as superior and special, without superior accomplishments
Expects constant attention, admiration and positive reinforcement from others
Envies others and believes others envy him/her
Is preoccupied with thoughts and fantasies of great success, enormous attractiveness, power, intelligence
Lacks the ability to empathize with the feelings or desires of others
Is arrogant in attitudes and behavior
Has expectations of special treatment that are unrealistic

In addition to these symptoms, the person may display arrogance, show superiority, and seek power.[8] The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can be similar to the traits of individuals with strong self-esteem and confidence; differentiation occurs when the underlying psychological structures of these traits are considered pathological. Narcissists have such an elevated sense of self-worth that they value themselves as inherently better than others, when in reality they have a fragile self-esteem, cannot handle criticism, and will often try to compensate for this inner fragility by belittling or disparaging others in an attempt to validate their own self-worth.[9]

Is Rob Ford A Clinically Diagnosable Psychopath?
 
And thus did Rob Ford become even more convinced that he's actually going to win another election - drunk Argos fans have spoken.

This is just pathetic. These guys are basically screaming 'show us your tits' at Spring Break to a girl who thinks it makes her pretty. It's just base spectacle at this point.
 
The Spirit Airlines ad and Rob Ford defamation of character lawsuits...

Yes this was for real. It was on the SA website but I notice it has been taken down - perhaps the promotion is over. I don't think that SA would have to worry about being sued for defamation because Ford has admitted to smoking crack and the truth is an absolute defense in a defamation lawsuit. Also in a defamation lawsuit you have to have a good reputation to defend and Ford has pretty much destroyed his through his own actions.

Peepers: Thanks for those thoughts here...


As you mention Spirit Airlines has taken down the Rob Ford crack mention in its advertising...
Could it be due to pressure coming from Ford supporters because of the embarrassment?

I agree with your thoughts on any kind of defamation of character lawsuits that may be coming
out of Rob Ford's problems and with what he has done over time and especially recently to his
own reputation he would not have much to stand on if he sues anyone for slander...

If there are lawsuits filed or pending will the taxpayers of the City of Toronto be liable for any
payments in these matters? I mention this thinking of the "deep pockets" that lawsuits of this
type sometimes target...So much for Toronto's taxpayers if the City has to pay damages in these
type of suits which goes up against what Mayor Rob Ford stood for...the City's citizens...
