Politics doesn't stand a chance in the Ford family psychodrama

Here's what I find unforgivable about the Fords; it took till now to figure it out. It's not their right-wing politics. There's lots of that around. It's not the bullying, bullies can be dealt with. Nor their huge ambition and sense of political entitlement. It's not Rob's moral foibles or unsavoury social life or his crassness.

How Doug Ford challenges the progressive vote

When someone is deeply pathological, it's hard to know where truth ends and the con begins. It's also difficult to know what they themselves believe. Do they even recognize their lies and manipulations? As George Costanza once said "It's not a lie, if you believe it".

Which brings us to Doug Ford. The first time city councillor -- who served constituents very poorly in his single term for Toronto's Etobicoke Ward 2 riding -- now wants to be mayor of Toronto. Just how long he has had this goal is anyone's guess.
