OK, that wasn't a laugh out loud moment. That's a moment that screams, WTF?

I heard this morning Ford wants to run for Prime Minister. Good luck, buddy

Ford has a zero percent chance of surviving an election, right?

You'd be wrong.

The greater Toronto area was amalgamated into one city about a decade ago. Because of this, Ford enjoys fervent support from people living outside the urban core, people that like him for being just like them, a real person with faults. Also, they like that he has apparently reduced their taxes. His support hovers around 30 per cent or so.

Now, depending on how many people run in the election (unlike the United States, we have more than two candidates) that could split the vote and that 30 per cent could help him win reelection.

Now isn't that a scary thought?

I don't think he can win again, but I wouldn't be my life on it either.

He was also stretching out his quads during the Council meeting, lol.

Surprising mobility for that size. I give him a third round grade and project him going to the Oakland Raiders at left guard.

He reduces taxes and provides good entertainment.

Yeah, some people look for that in a politician

I must say though, taking away all of his mayorial responsibilities just gives him more time to do reckless shit.
