So, I was arguing with an imbecilic -- and totally typical -- Rob Ford supporter on the wall at CAPP. She put up a link to Ford's Facebook page with the comment: 'Don't like Rob Ford? Go tell him.' (She removed it soon after.)
I went there and put up a link to Chris Hume's story titled: Rifts would only deepen under Mayor Rob Ford. He calls it right -- this election is about anger.
That, of course, is anger, anger at everything, but especially Toronto City Council and “Toronto elites.”
I added to the link: 'I earn under $35,000, am a tenant and don't own a car, but I must be a Toronto "elite", because I wouldn't vote for Ford if you held a gun to my head.'
It stayed up long enough to garner three comments -- all, as you might imagine, unfavourable -- and then the whole thing disappeared.
Rob Ford is a big fat coward. In addition to all his other horrible characteristics, of course.
Torontonians, wake the fuck up!
He's in the lead by a long shot. But Pantalone is gaining and 25 per cent of us are undecided. I wish Rocco Rossi would bow out and throw his support to someone else -- probably Smitherman.
I'd prefer Joey Pants, but if I had to, I'd vote for Smitherman (with a clothespeg on my nose).
