the only thing that makes me sad about this story is it broke too late for me to give him my write-in vote for Mayor of Seattle.

Image how fat he'd be without crack...

Oh, the reporters weren't asking the right questions. I imagine the right questions are:
"Hey, man. Got any crack?"
"Hey, man. Wanna buy some crack?"
Little does he realize that the last reporter's question, "Are you on crack right now?" is, in reality, the correct question.
I just want to draw attention to that last question and how beautiful it is. Notice all the other reporters murmuring their disapproval ("Oh, come on." "Idiot."), clearly covering up for the fact that the guy that asked the question understands exactly how much of a joke this whole thing is and the best way to proceed with it and they are idiots for continuing the charade of legitimacy.

Everyone knows there are plenty of casual crack smokers who only hit the pipe after a couple drinks.

I love it when the situation's so bad that "I was in a drunken stupor" seems like a solid defense by comparison.

I don't always drink beer, but when I do I usually fire up the crack pipe after.

I live in Toronto and people are just beside themselves with joy over this shit, and not just for the obvious reasons. Everyone in the actual city hates Ford; he was elected by the people in the suburbs who are functionally retarded. In classic Canadian-style democracy the left couldn't decide which of the 32 flavors they wanted and so a minority of crazy conservatives got their idiot candidate who everyone else hates elected.
But the joke was on us, because if literally everyone I knew at the time had been successful in preventing his election (I remember that election, people didn't so much support candidates as attempt to destroy the support of Ford) we would have missed out on the crack mayor saga. And that would have been robbing the collective cultural heritage of all mankind.
Basically what I'm saying is: you're welcome. We had to put up with years of bullshit like "bike paths are a war on the car" in order to get comedy of this caliber.
Speaking of classically Canadian, notice how the Torontonian thinks everyone outside of Toronto is an idiot.
But I thought Canadians were all so nice.

Rob Ford was technically fired from his job over an obscure conflict-of-interest law, but that was overturned on appeal:

It's hilarious. The Fords don't give a shit about being media-savvy, but both Rob and Doug Ford have a Sunday afternoon radio show. At least Jerry Springer's political career was over before he became a pundit; in Toronto, the Fords are given two hours to promote themselves under the guise of municipal talk. Toronto goes on about its world-class aspirations, but it likes electing stereotypical huckster types like Ford and Mel Lastman sometimes.
The people outside of downtown voted for a racist, homophobic mayor whose policy was "I'll cut your taxes and magically find the money elsewhere", whose transit plan was based around being angry that he would get stuck behind busses, and had a history of incidents involving alcohol and bad behavior.
Then, when the money wasn't magically found elsewhere, after he'd already removed their precious vehicle tax, cuts were prioritized to affect mostly "people who didn't vote for me", and the same idiots thought that was sound fiscal management, despite the only reason there was a balanced budget was from a surplus from the previous administration he pretended wasn't there. And once again his supporters thought this was amazing.
He's joked before about being Tea Party - that's his base. The "screw you I got mine" crowd.
So yes, his voter base are idiots.

I don't think the people outside of Toronto are idiots, just the ones in the immediate periphery who hate the city but get to vote in our elections.
Also, let's be fair, it's not the people in Toronto mindlessly hating on the rest of the country constantly.
I was just making a Toronto stereotype joke anyway. Every city's yuppies blames all the problems on their bridge-and-tunnel population.
This happens everywhere I've lived. In the smallest towns, people complain about the inbred morons who live out in the hills. Or they have a Springfield / Shelbyville situation.
Yeah but in this case we're right. Did none of you read any of that shit about why they elected Rob Ford? Sometimes stereotypes are true.
