Because truth’s a defence, that’s why. And the truth, she’s a-comin’.
I have arrived – about three decades after the fact. Check this out: “Penultimate song ’14? saw a mass stage invasion, followed by Harry Violent rejoining the band on stage for a cover of The Hot Nasties’ ‘Invasion Of The Tribbles’, which concluded with all members of the group, except drummer Will Doyle, jumping into [...]
Forget about the conflict of interest allegations, and the slurs against minorities and gays. Forget about the appalling lapses in judgment, like passing out fridge magnets at Peter Worthington’s funeral yesterday. Forget about all of that. In researching my Sunday column, I marvelled at how much shit this bloody fool has gotten himself into. There’s [...]
Wow. Just, wow. The problem is the drug allegations have now paralyzed this agenda. It’s a distraction that utterly undermines Ford’s ability to manage a dysfunctional council that opposes any notion of restraint. Ford needs to directly address these allegations, or get help and step aside. He must be prepared, for the city’s sake and [...]
From “mikesunday,” at firstname.lastname@example.org: re Rob Ford. Do me a favor go fuck yourself you fucken idioit. you should not talk the way you do you fucken fool I think you smoke crack you fucken junkie. 184.108.40.206
Who are these guys? They’re Rob Ford staffers, that’s who they are, passing out Rob Ford business cards and fridge magnets at Peter Worthington’s funeral. I am not making this up. Snapped by CP24 reporter Katie Simpson.
If you’re a conservative, and you still support this human shrapnel machine, you’re an idiot.
…she’s certainly entitled to one. Here’s what has happened to her today: 1. She had her 60th birthday. 2. She had her first 100 days in power. 3. The NDP folded, and said it would vote for her budget. 4. The issue she hated (a Toronto casino) and the opponent she hated (Rob Ford) lost [...]
It’s wrong for progressives to pay bad guys for an video showing a crime. It’s perfectly okay for a conservative mayor to pay the same bad guys for drugs. Res ipsa loquitur.
That means I only have to get 213,000 followers to catch up to Justin Trudeau! Easy peasy!
Dear folks: Rob Ford is going to deny he used drugs. Therefore, don’t ask him if he used drugs. Ask him instead why he won’t submit to a drug test. We’re his employers, after all. Sincerely, Warren
After the B.C. fiasco, Canada’s polling industry is — once again — engaged in a painful existential debate about what they do and how they do it. Because, make no mistake, they were dramatically mistaken about last Tuesday’s British Columbia election result. Going into the month-long race, every single pollster declared the NDP was far [...]
TORONTO – Shit From Hell, Canada’s best-loved geriatric punk combo, is entering the studo to record a song to raise funds for the purchase of the “Rob Ford smoking something illicit” video. “If it helps to drive that bumbling oaf from office, we deserve the Nobel Prize for the Arts,” said bassist Winkie. Guitarist Ritalin [...]
Now that he’s seen as (a) responsible for bringing down Nigel Wright, who every Ottawa Conservative admired and liked, and (b) whipping the Press Gallery into a Tory-hating frenzy, Mike Duffy’s political life isn’t worth a plug nickel. Heretofore, Duffy needs to sleep with one eye open, and a gun under his pillow. What Harper [...]
That’s a word I never, ever thought I’d see appended to Nigel Wright’s name: scandal. We don’t know each other, but we sort of know each other. Long story. Anyway: it’s been a shocker, this mess. And now it’s claimed a guy who I thought scandal could never touch.
…or Taiwanese TV, in any event. Watching this, I am reminded (among other things) of how we have the world’s best media. But the shot at Toronto voters at the end? It’s funny, but also true. H/T J. Tetreault!
…no one’s got it, yet. But there’s a few million people who’d like to see it, following this (who broke the story) and this (who sat on the story, for weeks) and this (who wish they’d had the story) and this. Until it makes its debut – and it will, unless one of Ford’s well-heeled [...]
Because his team won, that’s why. From my pal Mertl: “The B.C. Liberals are a free-enterprise coalition of federal Liberal and Conservative supporters. Clark hails from the Liberal wing but got impressive support from federal Tories, including former ministers Stockwell Day and Chuck Strahl. Kinsella told Yahoo! Canada News he thinks the B.C. Liberals are “for all [...]
