But Then There’s Rob Ford….

So the odious Rob Ford is coming to his political end back home in Toronto. I can’t be happier. He and his brother are so ill-qualified for their jobs that once again they turn the city into a joke, a national joke that’s happened far too often to a city that’s deserved so much better but has received precisely nothing for its sufferings. Rob Ford is a specific, acute bedsore on the local body politic that must needs be excised forthwith.

So it appears now that this will finally happen. The Ford virus will be with Toronto a long damn time, but we must be patient, and finally at long fucking last harrow the Canadian Shire. Let’s be rid of the neocons; let’s rid them from our lives, and send them screaming back toward the ex-urbs where they fucking belong.
