(Which I thought everyone knew already was “yeah, duh, but their music was still cool a lot of the time. And they dressed great, so.”)
The confusing thing about Rob Ford is that he’s not that confusing.
He’s loud, red like the Devil, displays a knack for honesty most can only find after a thousand beers, knows nobody likes him, doesn’t give a shit that nobody likes him, is openly racist, homophobic (”If you’re not doing needles and you’re not gay, you won’t get AIDS, probably”), has threatened his wife with death, strangers with death, and yet there is something about him that actually strikes fear in the heart of everyone under 35.
Maybe because he has just called bullshit on our whole entire city?
And maybe he is a little bit right? (…)
He is exactly the fuck we are always picturing ourselves not giving.
Of course, Rob Ford’s statements about AIDS are scientifically sound.
(Women who get AIDS tend to get it from cheating boyfriends who’ve also been screwing guys, somewhere down the
food sex chain, on the “down low.” Blood transfusions? Donated by gay guys/addicts with AIDS.)
And all the Chinese voted for him
even though because he said “they work like dogs.”
Now, had he said they ate cats, that would be a totally different thing. Cuz that would make Ford a Liberal.
