Rob Ford's week gets rougher
Just when you thought this story couldn't get any weirder, a video shows embattled Toronto mayor Rob Ford bowling over a council member during a motion of debate yesterday. City councillor Pam McConnell appeared to be the unintended casualty of Ford running down the aisle, unexpectedly, as tension mounted in the room.
But some people chose to see it instead as: Rob Ford tackles another Toronto city council member during today's meeting.

Obviously, there were just so many amazing reactions, we couldn't pick just one.
Relatedly, and on a more serious note, the National Post's Andrew Coyne writes, "Rob Ford doesn’t need to hear ‘get help.’ He needs to hear ‘get out.’" Further explaining, Coyne tweeted, "Here’s my attempt to come to grips with what went on this aft. In all honesty, I don’t think it does it justice." Colleague Bruce Arthur said, "In another monster Ford column, @acoyne cuts through the bullshit." The Atlantic's Richard Florida came to a decision after reading it: "The Rob Ford Show finally jumped the shark."
