Rob Ford’s press team resigned yesterday. When your crackhead boss calls the press “a bunch of maggots” and fires his chief of staff, (apparently because he went to the police with the crack video story), there just isn’t much that a press office can do.
Other than being interesting in its own right, the Ford scandal is a good benchmark for Matt Drudge, Fox and the rest of the right wing trying to turn little nothingburgers into something-gates. Show Real Americans that Obama smoked some rock with Somali crack dealers, and maybe they’ll pay attention. Otherwise, unless he called the IRS and told them to audit the Tea Party, or sent all the Marines within a thousand miles of Benghazi on liberty as soon as he heard the embassy was under attack, nobody gives a shit.
