I'm surprised that Ford would even think that an arrest would keep him from running or getting elected.
Fatso probably doesn't, but big brother Thug might just have enough awareness to understand the reality here. Though even that's not something I would be willing to bet money on.
Certainly plausible. And if Rob did get arrested, I wouldn't be surprised if that's how things played out. I wonder how much of Rob's goodwill would carry over to Doug's campaign. At least some of it would move to other candidates, no?.
Rob's the, er "charismatic one," (heh, heh) the more popular of the two. God knows how, but there it is. Shades of George W. Bush, Slob's the one people supposedly want to hang out with, have a beer with, etc. Or so they keep telling us. Doug, when you get right down to it, is a pretty cold fish. In their circles, I doubt he's anywhere as well liked as his fat oaf of a brother, which may well be one of the sources of resentment between them.
