At last he stands revealed, the Bubbah Lord of the Ford Nation, in all his grubby glory.
The political thug, the violent rages, the dangerous drunk, the crude sexual remarks, the hookers, the racism.
According to the police documents, Barnett and Provost told Ransom the mayor took a taxi to a bar and hurled racist epithets at the driver along the way, calling him a "Paki," mocking him with fake-language sounds and throwing business cards at him.
The brutish bully.
Today’s much anticipated city council meeting started with allegations of bullying. City Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong accused the mayor of physically blocking him from speaking to the council chair and “ordering” him to sit down.
Who would try to intimidate a man half his size.
The grotesque right-wing buffoon who claims he's a "role model." The laughingstock of the world.
“I support the police more than anyone,” Ford told the City Council. “I’m a positive role model in kids that are down and out.” He’s such a great role model for kids that nervous organizers have begged him to stay on the sidelines of the city’s annual Santa Claus parade, according to the Toronto Star.
The man who talks and acts like a mobster.
Later, sounding more Mafia than mayor, Ford hinted darkly at exposure. “We all know stories about each other," he said. "I wasn't brought up that way. I’m not a rat.”
And of course the drug abuser, in total DENIAL.
You know about two weeks ago I tried to sum up how I felt about Rob Ford in this tweet.
Drug abuse doesn't make a person like Rob Ford bad. Being a bully, a crass bigot, and a compulsive liar does. #TOpoli #Ford1010

And nothing I saw or read today has changed my mind. Rob Ford should not be fired because he has a drug problem.
He should be fired for his criminal connections, his brutish behaviour, his racism, his sexism, his homophobia, his reactionary policies, his crass incompetence. And for lying like a thief, and shaming us all in the eyes of the world.
Aided and abetted by his Con enablers, like his equally thuggish brother Doug ...
Who the latest documents have revealed once again to be the power behind the throne...or the toilet.
And of course Stephen Harper, who helped Doug create a powerful political organization.
Propped up the buffoon for his own sinister purposes...
Because they are just different versions of the same Con beast. Harper wants Toronto so bad he would do anything to try to conquer it.
And who will for his crimes against the decent people of that city, be forced to wear the Fordzilla all the way to the next election. Like a drowning man wears an anchor.
Which is why the best thing I heard today, apart from the wonderful sound of the Ford and Con Nations choking on the word HOOKER. And slowly dying in plain view.
Was this sound...
The sound of drums and the sound of angry citizens banging on the doors of City Hall and saying enough is ENOUGH...
For if they can rise up against Ford, we can rise up against Harper and his foul regime.
Yup. The grubby truth has been revealed. But I always knew this eh?
From the very day he came to power.
You can't trust a bully.
And you can't put lipstick on a Con hog...
