He was so sure he was going to lose, they had to hire a squeegee kid to mop the sweat off his ample brow.
And when he found out he had got off on a technicality, he was so relieved he sounded like the new and improved Rob Ford.
He stood at the podium, grey faced. With a choking voice, he read from a script. “This has been a very, very humbling experience,” Ford said.
For about ten seconds.
Before declaring that two years more of his moronic majesty wasn't enough, he now wants SIX !!!!
“The job is not finished yet, and I plan to spend the next six years on getting the job done,” Ford said.
Which despite the fact he looked like he was about to have a heart attack, was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen, until I read this column from the uber right-wing columnist Terence "Corky" Corcoran.
Many have said — and continue to say — that Rob Ford may have learned a lesson from these cases. They had hoped — and still entertain the idea as a weak fallback position following the court decision — that Mr. Ford would be humiliated. It is hard to see it that way, in the wake of Mr. Ford’s two convincing court victories. It is the left that has been humiliated.
Because of course, the porky Corky couldn't be more wrong. The Fordzilla was the one humiliated. He's eaten so much humble pie recently I'm surprised he's still standing. And it won't be long before he's back for another helping.
Ford has a week to go before his campaign finance audit is expected to come out. If he is found to have violated election laws, he could be removed. The question is: How many lives does Ford have left?
And as for the left, we're not dismayed, we're DELIGHTED.
Because we need Rob Ford to be our useful
You see, if he had been removed by the courts he might have been able to portray himself as a victim of the "left-wing conspiracy" he's always babbling about. And won even more of the sympathy vote in the next election.
But leave him in office and he's sure to do himself even more damage. Shoot himself in each foot AND in both buttocks. Continue being the worse Mayor in the history of Toronto.
Until even his own supporters are tired of him.
There’s plenty of ammunition to use against Ford in 2014 — and it’s possible that even those who support his agenda may have tired of the man by then. Ford has always been his own worst enemy, and now has another two years to prove that. The left can afford to wait. If they can’t beat this guy, under anyone’s banner, when Toronto next goes to the polls, that’s a reflection on them, not Ford.
Because let's be clear eh? Whatever Corky says, we lefties don't have a front-row seat to watch that crass, vulgar, bigot bully GROW. We have a cushy front-row seat to watch him self destruct. Or as John Candy used to say, blowed up good.
And in the process take Stephen Harper down with him.
Because Rob and Steve once had a hot thing going eh?
So hot, or hawt, that the PMO forced YouTube to take down a tape of the above romantic encounter. The one the French CBC Porn Channel called "Le Picnic." Ooh la la.
But which sadly only lasted until Great Romeo Leader realized that his chunky Friend With Benefits was a liability rather than an asset. His brother Doug was the real Mayor. And if there was still a Ford Nation, it was just a bunch of smelly Con rednecks. Most of whom live in their pyjamas.... in ALBERTA.
And here's the best part eh?
By the time most of those who actually live in Toronto are sick to death of Rob Ford, most Canadians will also be sick to death of Great Ugly Leader. The next election will be just around the corner, and Harper will need Ford like he needs a monkey on his back.
And after watching that
Golly. I do believe Corky might be right after all. We DO deserve cushy front row seats !!!!!!
And lots of popcorn eh?
C'mon Fordzilla, you useful Con buffoon.
Show us where you're going.
Remind us what you can do...
You know, sometimes I think we aren't just going to defeat those hideous Cons.
We are going to destroy them...
