Why Does Gawker Care About the Mayor of Toronto?


I've never understood the fascination that Gawker has with Rob Ford, the pan-faced oaf who turned his blue-collar appeal into the perfect pitch for the people of Toronto. They made him their mayor and they would probably do it all over again because that's the society they want to live in.

At some point, you have to move on.

No one should care about this man. He is a man-child handed an office rendered irrelevant by the city council structure of Toronto. Laughing at the fat crack head is what's in nowadays? Hey, maybe at first, but now it's just old hat.
