Ford—who has now been stripped of most of his mayoral powers but not, actually, the title of mayor—also allegedly smelled like pot. I mean, he's not going to sit through a three-hour service sober, ya know?

Which brings me to a quick point: How can anyone (outside of Toronto) hate this man? How can anyone (outside of Toronto) call for his resignation? He is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
What other formerly obscure mayor has brought this much joy into your life? Can you name the mayors of St. Louis or Calgary or Mexico City? Do you care who they are? Have they ever affected your day-to-day routine? Rob Ford has. He's been the No. 1 source of online distraction for months now. He's the distraction the staid world of politics has been craving.
In Scarface, Tony Montana says, “You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, 'That's the bad guy.' So… what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie.” Many politicians know how to lie, how to hide, how to disguise their badness. But they're still ultimately bad.
Ford is pretty much out in the open with his flaws. Those flaws include drinking, publicly admitting to giving his wife cunnilingus, and smoking crack. And he either doesn't give a shit about the flaws, or he's too stoned to care. It's been quite a show. I don't want the bad guy to leave.
