Rob Ford Wants to Be the Prime Minister of Canada
(Source) ‘Sorry, kids – I shouldn’t have sworn in front of the kids,’ he said. ‘But after a while, I know what I’m doing is right. I’m serving people. I’m saving taxpayers money. And you know what, I made mistakes, I drank too much, I smoked some crack sometime. What can I say? I made a mistake, I’m human.’
In a separate interview with Fox News, Ford also revealed that his ambitions don’t end with remaining as Toronto mayor and that he wants to be prime minister of Canada.
‘Yes, one day I do want to run for prime minister,’ said Ford.
Rob Ford might be the least self aware person in the history of the universe. Has he drank a little too much on ocassion? Sure. Does he dabble in the crack cocaine game? Of course. Did he imply he eats his wife out all the time at a public hearing calling for his termination? The answer is yes. But despite all that nonsense, he still has dreams. He’s really no different from you or I. Should those small transgressions keep him from climbing the political ladder and becoming the prime minister of Canada? Yes it should. I’ve actually never been more sure of something in my entire life. But I’ve also never rooted for someone to succeed more than Rob Ford. He’s clearly lost his mind, but if running for prime minister means more Rob Ford coverage then I’m ready for the ride. Seatbelt is fastened. Show us what you’re really made of, Rob.
He’s the hero Toronto deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Crack-smoking Dark Knight.
