Wherever you went in Toronto today you couldn't get away from Rob Ford.
Everybody was talking about him eh?
Wondering whether he's a crack head, or just plain crazy.
So I wasn't really surprised to find him waiting for me on my way home.
And as I stared at this ghastly apparition, I could almost hear him screaming " Somebody get me that !@#!! TAPE.
Mayor Rob Ford turned down three chances on Friday to address the specifics of media reports about a video in which he appears to smoke crack cocaine and utter an anti-gay slur.
And who can blame him eh? It doesn't sound too flattering. And he clearly wants to get his hands on it, before EVERYBODY else does.
And of course he's been there before. When someone had an audio tape of His Worship promising to buy oxycontin for a friend. And his team went to extraordinary lengths to neutralize the threat.
Ford’s campaign knew the Toronto Star had a copy, and feared it would all but end the race for Ford if the paper published it. So Macdonald created @QueensQuayKaren, befriended Doneit-Henderson (“@DieterDH What have you got on @robfordteam? Nothing I’d like to see more than to bring him down!”), got the recording from him, and then passed it on to the Sun‘s Sue-Ann Levy—who quickly wrote a typically sympathetic story headlined “Ford feels ‘set up’ by drug tape.”
But now they're even MORE desperate. Because not only are most decent Torontonians deeply worried by the thought that the already out of control Fordzilla could be running the city while looped.
His rabid base is also in a FRENZY. Not because of the crack. A lot of them take it themselves.
But because of his scary friends...
I mean that's the Ford Nation's NIGHTMARE eh? That's why they buy so many guns. That's why they vote for him and the Cons.
And why Stephen Harper is also deeply concerned...
Because Rob Ford is just the pathetic figurehead of a group of Con operatives led by his brother Doug, and heavily staffed by the Harper gang.
He's counting on them to try to penetrate the anti-Con bastion of Toronto from within, like a Trojan Horse...or a tape worm.
And the last thing he needs is another sleazy stooge reminding people of Mike Duffy...
Because Duffy is giving him heartburn, and that sordid senate scandal just keeps getting more and more embarrassing. Or damning
The Senate’s internal economy committee sanitized the original audit of Sen. Mike Duffy’s expenses to remove damning findings, documents obtained by CTV News show.
Sources say the whitewash was part of a backroom deal with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief of staff, Nigel Wright.
Now it's not just Mikey, or Nigel, it's PAMELA !!!!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper forced Sen. Pamela Wallin out of the Conservative caucus after learning the preliminary findings of an audit looking into her travel expenses, a source has told CTV News. Wallin issued a statement Friday evening saying she has recused herself from the caucus as she awaits the results of the external audit.
And do you think it was easy kicking HER out of the Caucus?
I bet Stephen Harper is still licking his bruises. And waiting for his ears to stop ringing.
Oh boy. Isn't it great to see so many Cons in such terrible trouble? Wasn't that the best week EVER?
And now we get to celebrate for THREE days !!!! Because it's the Two-Four weekend !!!!
The Great Canadian weekend when you can have a bit too much to drink. But everybody else is too drunk to notice.
And all I need for mine to be perfect is for Nigel to get back to me...
Nige !!!! Nige !!!! Please. I really want that video.
Rob !!!! Rob!!! please call Steve. I think he might need a BOOST.
Steve !!! Steve !!! Call your lawyer. You might need one soon.
Golly. Who needs fireworks when the Cons are EXPLODING?
Hey you !!! Save me
Have a great weekend everybody !!!!!
