The City Council of Toronto has voted to strip Mayor Rob Ford of most of his powers after a totally bonkers session in which Ford vowed "outright war," and compared the vote to "a coup d'etat" and to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
Ford -- who admitted earlier this month to smoking crack cocaine in a "drunken stupor" -- told council members, "What goes around, comes around, friends."

"And you will never see something -- mark my words, my friends, this is going to be outright war in the next election, and I am going to do everything in my power to beat you guys."
Also during this meeting, he physically knocked down a council member during a break "while he and his brother, City Councilor Doug Ford, sparred with hecklers in the council gallery." More at CNN.com: "Toronto council strips power from embattled Mayor Rob Ford
