I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

    Leaving aside the authenticity of the video, I have to admit the “our mayor’s literally on crack” theory answers a whole lot of nagging questions.

    One question: what critter is it that is on the couch next to the Toronto Maple Leafs player and the Canadian Mountie, whooping it up at the wild crack party? Otter? Beaver? Muskrat? Man, the mayor better not be providing narcotics to cute aquatic mammals, or PETA will get involved. And then he’ll really be in trouble.

    Oh wow. The Daily Show’s, or at least their tumblr, take notice of this guy. You know it’s bad when an American program is taking notice of anything involving Canada.

    I still want to know, how did this chucklefuck get in office?

    • Dan Hibiki says:

      The same way most conservatives get elected.
      He lied about government spending and promised to save the city millions of dollars if elected and he appealed to old stupid people living in suburbs thanks to their shared hatred for liberal major cities.

      • matthewfabb says:

        To add what Dan mentioned, Rob Ford got 47% of the vote and the 2 other candidates split the left-wing vote, that combined would have beaten Rob Ford.

        In the end his small soundbite that he constantly gave that city hall is broken and that only he could fix it. He promised he would be able reduce taxes without cutting services (the later falling through of course) appealed to people.
