Despite the mainstream media narrative, Rob Ford kicked his opponents’ asses in last night’s mayoral debate

Toronto’s mainstream media, those nabobs of self-centered, narcissistic reflection who think that their writing about a city represented by Rob Ford diminishes them, are doing everything they can to paint a false narrative of the current mayoral race. They want Ford to lose and they want people to think Ford can only lose. But the overwhelming audience support for Rob Ford in last night’s debate, and the dismal, inept performance by his chief rival Olivia Chow were so obvious that even the media couldn’t write off the incumbent mayor’s phoenix-like resurgence on the political scene.

“Olivia’s Army” by Hollywood Loser ( You can get an ABC T! Anybody But Chow)

(with apologies to Elvis Costello)

Don’t start her talking
Chow could yak all night
Ford’s mind’s gone sleepwalking
While she threatens the local Right
Called careers information
Does your city need Maoist radicalization?

Olivia’s army is here to stay
Olivia’s army are on their way
And I would rather vote any way else
Than her today

The mayor’s a Crackhead Charlie
He didn’t crack a smile
But it’s no laughing party
When you’ve seen what’s become of the Golden Mile

Don’t need no itchy triggers
Just one famous widow, one million white niggers

Asiancourt is up for grabs
Danforth is full of ‘Abs
Mississauga’s Palestine
Better cover your ears when the Chinese dine
With the boys from the Star and the Ceeb and the Times

But there’s no danger
Socialism’s a professional career
Though it could be arranged
With just a word in the late Jack Layton’s ear

If you’re out of luck or out of work
It still beats living in Johannesburg
