RON HART: Politics better in a stupor than sober

Published: Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 04:35 PM.

Ford has issues. But to be fair, after a long day, stuffed into his suit, apologizing, ribbon cutting and presenting visiting movie stars with the Kilo to the City, who wouldn’t like to unwind with some crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor?

The mayor admits that his behavior is embarrassing, but no one goes to prison for being an embarrassment. Otherwise, Joe Biden would currently be serving three to five years in jail.

Hollywood and the New York media elite do not view cocaine use as much of a problem; rather, it’s more of a networking opportunity. They downplayed allegations that Obama sold cocaine in college. I viewed it as a positive; at least it means he had some business experience. If Obama sold drugs, it’s safe to say it was not via a website he designed.

Obama has correctly asked his DOJ to reduce jail time for crack convictions. Federal prisons are filled with minor drug offenders, and Illinois jails are filled with ex-governors.

The biggest threat to Mayor Ford’s health is that he overeats. After a long day of apologizing, he devoured 4,000 calories of food in one meal at a local eatery. Even more troubling, the bus boy is missing.

Doesn’t crack cocaine make one thinner? He must cut his cocaine with Canadian bacon.

If you can be accused of crude language, sexual innuendo, pill-popping, drinking at work, and bringing a hooker to an office St. Patrick’s Day party and still cut taxes and fees, then kudos to you. I’d vote for Charlie Sheen if he would balance the budget and reduce the role of government in our lives.
