I Really Want to Stop ... But ...

As much as I don't like the man's politics, I am starting to feel a bit sorry for Rob Ford.

Whatever you may feel for Rob Ford, I can't imagine conservatives wanting a mayor that attracts this type of negative attention on a nearly constant basis ...
SchadenFord: the pleasurable feeling of gloating vindication when the buffoonish Mayor of Toronto f—ks up yet again; and the gleeful anticipation of same, because the latter is f—king inevitable. It’s like the sun rising, like tick following tock. You know it has to happen. And you find yourself, in spite of your better nature, looking forward to it.

Look, I could buy the argument that it was his house and they shouldn't have been there - file trespassing charges against the CBC if it was so bad. It's what the rest of the world does.

Skip the holier-than-thou nonsense, though. Conservatives and the conservative-owned media have given this legs beyond what was warranted.

Where's that Firewall?

Toronto needs to give its head a shake and throw out these university-educated, latte-sipping, cultural elitists, and tell them to stay out of Alberta's politics! Where's that firewall?

[CTV, National Citizens Coalition bashes Redford's victory]
A Toronto-based conservative advocacy group is questioning the election of Alberta premier-designate Alison Redford.
The irony is so thick, I'm going to spread it on my toast in the morning.

Tory Candidate Blames Campaign Troubles on Tim Hudak

More Tory troubles. This time, however, it's with an active Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario candidate who comes clean about how difficult it is to deliver her leader's divisive and destructive message to voters.

[London Free Press, Miller blames campaign troubles on Hudak]
A day before Ontarians go to the polls, Tory candidate Cheryl Miller has blamed her troubles in London-Fanshawe on the unpopularity of Conservative leader Tim Hudak.  
... 
Miller told Garrison that the campaign has been sometimes frustrating for her because she has had to carry the message of Tory leadership rather than her own.
