#Elxn42: Trumpywood Squares...Etobicoke Edition


All the Ford brothers need now, apparently, are his and his combovers according to Josh Wingrove writing for Bloomberg:

The brother of Toronto’s controversial former mayor is considering a run to take over from Stephen Harper, should the prime minister falter in Canada’s election.

If Harper were to step down as head of the Conservative Party after the Oct. 19 vote, Doug Ford would probably seek the leadership, according to his brother Rob Ford -- who as mayor admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

“Doug said if it’s a minority government, Harper’s going to step down. He wants to run for leadership,” Rob Ford, 46, said in an interview Thursday. “If it’s one member, one vote, he said, you know, he’s as popular as anyone else across Canada.”

Reached Friday, Doug Ford -- 50, himself a former mayoral candidate and city councilor -- said he fully supports Harper but wouldn’t rule out joining a race to replace him...


Could this be a twisted media 'li(n)e to keep the disaffected leaners from falling off the fence into that field of orange?


Did the Onion just buy out the former mayor of New York?

I would suggest the Ford brothers have seen the Donald and decided if he can do it, so can they! Everybody needs a goal in life and the Ford brothers, well at least one, doesn't have a political job anymore.

it would be fun to actually see that race. my god what is north America coming to? The Donald as President and Dougie as Con leader. I think I'm moving now. Japan seems a tad more stable than Europe, even with its earthquakes.
