Ford just told the media this morning's beahviour was embarassing. He wasn't talking about himself, either. Says the others were grandstanding, which seems to be his new favourite word. .
Rob Ford said:“Am I mad, of course I’m mad, because every one of you guys have sinned. What goes around comes around friends. Remember what I am saying.”
the Red group is labelled "photo" while the Yellow group is labelled "video". The photo and the video were not made on the same day. There's no evidence that they were made by the same person or even in the same place.
I guess what I'm saying is we don't know that the Red group ever had the video.
The Ford Bros. do latch on to a new favourite word or phrase every so often.
I've challenged myself to dig up a Ford Maxim of the Month, so here goes:
January: "They want to kill him. They want to politically kill him" (Doug)
February: "a great day for democracy" (Rob)
March: "pathological liars" (both)
April: "explain how politics works" (Rob)
May: loooooong silence - something about a video? followed by "maggots" (Rob)
June: "I'm not getting into personnel issues" (Rob on 'Dave from Scarborough')
July: "Rob Ford is the taxpayer's lord" (guest appearance)
August: "a couple drinks" at Taste of the Danforth (both)
September: "SOBs" (Doug)
October: "Subways, subways, subways!" (a shrieking Rob fleeing reporters)
November: "outright war" (Rob) tied with "I don't throw friends under the bus" (Rob)
December: "taking pictures of little kids" (both)
January: "Grandstanding" (both) tied with "unglued" (Doug)
To be continued, unfortunately...
Award yourself one point for each time you facepalmed while reading this list.
As a bonus, I would also like to share this little gem of a quote which I unearthed during my November 2013 research:
I don't think there is any comment I could pass upon that last one; it speaks for itself.
I'd love to hear more apt suggestions for any particular month! My research was not exhaustive and my memory is not perfect, although I find staying away from crack is a big help when trying to keep a clear head.
