The Rob and Doug Radio Show must go on
Here’s exciting news for everyone waiting to hear from Mayor Rob Ford: His Sunday radio program on NewsTalk 1010 is a go.
This past week has been frustrating for the mayor, with all that hogwash about crack and videos and hanging with an alleged drug dealer/convicted woman beater and staggering around the city hall rotunda with a bottle of brandy, trying to find his Cadillac.
He must be desperate to refute the calumny spread by pathological liars who want to take him down and replace him with a lace-hanky mayor who will hand over the billions he has saved taxpayers to the union thugs.
But with something or other before the courts, Rob says his tongue is tied. He can’t set the record straight, as much as he’d like to, or he might compromise somebody’s right to something or other.
His lips are sealed by the court, and we all know the mayor is a law-and-order guy and a real straight arrow.
It will be a challenge for him and steadfast Brother Doug, his Rock of Gibraltar in stormy times, to fill two hours of airtime. So much to talk about, but the law is the law.
Luckily, he has millions of supporters to jam the phone lines. They understand he is constrained by the court, so they’ll run with the ball to unravel the claims of lying liars.
That’s why Rob and Doug’s business-as-usual approach is so beautiful. All they have to do is play the victim card - always their ace in the hole - and let the callers do the rest.
Two hours of love from Ford Nation when it is needed most, and not a contrary word from the haters.
