Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is the gift that keeps on entertaining, although one can’t help but think his constituents might prefer a leader who is slightly less ridiculous. The nation’s most famous crack smoker’s arrival at City Hall today turned into a three-ring circus as security tried to lead him through a throng of reporters.
Clearly spooked by the onslaught, the always dignified Ford suddenly took off in a full sprint up a flight of stairs, leaving a fair amount of carnage and confusion in his wake.
It is at this point I remind you this is something that happened in a government building in the real world and is not a piece of theater from a network television drama.
The reporters at the end of this video put a nice bow on the situation by making a few wisecracks at Ford’s expense.
They should realize, however, that things could have turned out much worse.
Hell, they’re lucky to be alive.
