Rob Effing Ford makes a bad situation worse

Rob Ford is going to have to get himself a badge, a T-shirt and maybe some business cards with the de facto new slogan of his year-old mayoralty: “I’m Rob f–king Ford, the mayor of this city!”
If the CBC, preening piously throughout, is correct in its reporting, Toronto’s mayor got more than just a little ticked off when Mary Walsh accosted him in his driveway on Monday, dressed like Marg Delahunty, her sometimes character on This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
After appearing to go along with the gag, he got increasingly peeved. Eventually he marched into the house and, we’re told, dialed 911. When he didn’t get the service he expected on that front, the CBC says, he unloaded on the innocent 911 dispatchers with a mouthload of obscenities.
Sources say Ford turned on the dispatcher, yelling: “You … bitches! Don’t you f–king know? I’m Rob f–king Ford, the mayor of this city!”
Recordings of the call have spread like wildfire throughout the police service — even though officially Toronto police spokesman Mark Pugash tells CBC News they can’t discuss a private call to the 911 service....
Tsk! Not so warm and fuzzy, Mr Mayor? Read the rest here.
How's that Mayor working out for you, Toronto?
Stay classy, Mr Effing Ford!
