Rob Ford and the Cherry Nation

Golly. How moving. I see that the old Con Don Cherry is standing by sticking to his fallen buddy Rob Ford.  

“It’s unbelievable how they have nailed him to the cross and only because of who he is,” Cherry said. “I feel for him because I have been there.”

And sharing his paranoia.

“Let’s lay the cards on the table. The only reason this happened, the only reason, was because of the left-wingers out to get him,” Cherry said.

And how fitting eh? That it should be at the end, like it was at the beginning...

“Put that in your pipe you left-wing kooks,” hockey commentator Don Cherry told a shocked inaugural meeting of the new city council, blasting “left-wing pinkos.” 

I say he’s going to be the greatest mayor this city has ever seen,” Cherry said. “As far as I’m concerned you can put that in your pipe you left-wing kooks.”

For who could ever forget that horror show? Which should have been cause enough to remove Ford from office, before he could do any damage. 

But of course back then the gravy sucking Fordzilla was riding high, and the hero of his Moron Nation. But now some in the media are questioning his sanity.

It’s almost as if Ford wanted to get thrown out of office — or, if not get thrown out, at least provoke some self-destructive crisis that put his status as mayor in question. This would be in keeping with his other instances of reckless behavior — including drug use, public intoxication, drinking and driving, and gratuitous acts of rage. In several cases, he compounded the self-destruction by lying about the episodes in easily falsifiable ways.

His Moron Nation is missing in action.

According to a Forum Research poll released to CP24 on Wednesday, 58 per cent of poll respondents back the court ruling, compared with 38 per cent who think Ford should be allowed to keep his job.

"Ford Nation is loyal, and having their hero thrown from office just solidifies their support,” Bozinoff said in a news release. “The majority of Torontonians, on the other hand, who are citizens of Reality Nation, appear to have just about reached the end of their patience with the mayor.”

His brother Doug wants his job.

And of course, Don Cherry is still an asshole.

Gawd. Somebody give Mr Pink a piano.

And tell him to play one for Rob...

  1. Don Cherry is even stupider than Con Clown Rob Ford. On hockey, sure, he knows his shit. But there is no hockey so Cherry should keep his hole shut tight, because on anything else, especially politics, he's a fucken ignoramus. The idiot bitches about bilingualism for example and I know many Francophones that speak English (their 2nd language) better than this cement head can speak it as his FIRST. The problem is the Canadian landscape is littered with moron rednecks like this, and as they are simpletons they are easy targets for Reform A Tory lies and vacuous bullshit from every political level and angle.
