Why the Rob Ford Scandal is also Hurting the Harper Cons
OMG. This is so spooky.
I knew they were as close as peas in a pod.
I remember how in that video of them at Rob Ford's bush party, they were falling all over each other.
But who knew that just days after Stephen Harper lost his Chief-of Staff, Rob Ford would fire his?
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has fired his chief of staff, the latest development in a tumultuous week at city hall where the pressure is growing for the mayor to comment on crack cocaine allegations raised by two media outlets.
"I am no longer the chief of staff, I did not resign," Mark Towhey told reporters Thursday afternoon as he was escorted out of city hall.
Gawd. I realize imitation is the highest form of flattery ...or in Ford's case flatulence. But that's ridiculous eh?
And now he's all alone in his bunker with his brother Doug and a handful of stooges. Now even those in the MSM who stroked him like a pussy cat are turning against him:
"Public office-holders do not need to respond to every rumour or allegation. But these allegations cross a line. There is no room for debate; Mr. Ford’s alleged appearance on the videotape is a legitimate public concern. Crack and those who deal it bring addiction and murder to city life, especially its young people."
Now he's done like dinner.
We are now in DEFCON 2, people, one stage away from annihilation for the Ford regime — which, at the moment, has been reduced to a hard-core cadre of about half a dozen political allies and one (1) lackey local newspaper. You know what? It’s over.
And you can be sure that the Harper Cons are also running for the exit eh? Or trying to buy up every copy of that video.
No, not the one of Ford and the Somali crack dealers. The one of Ford and Harper together. The one the PMO tried to suppress.
Because if once they thought that Ford would help them take the progressive bastion of Toronto, now they must realize he can only hurt them.
Especially since Harper is now being accused of being a sleaze bag himself.
Ford shares an uncanny resemblance with Harper's other big problem...
And the RCMP are investigating one.
And watching the other.
The world may be watching to see if Gawker reaches its crowd sourcing goal of $200,000 to purchase the video of the mayor apparently smoking crack cocaine, but so are Toronto police. We “will closely monitor that and if any evidence of a criminal act arises from that, we’ll deal with that,” said Police Chief Bill Blair on Wednesday, when asked what would happen if the Gawker campaign was successful.
Yup. As I've been saying ever since I started blogging, Cons can't be trusted anywhere near the levers of power. Because they are sleazy, they are liars, they are bigots, they are the scum of the earth.
And like the rats they are they are all fleeing the sinking ship.
But now at last we have this grubby gang where we want them, and we will show them no mercy.
We WILL clean up our country.
And we WILL destroy them all...
