Rob Ford, AKA The Family Guy Sketch That Goes On Way Too Long Because They Think If It Goes On Long Enough It Will Become Funny Again But It Doesn't Made Flesh, is still running for office after this.
fengi: (Mr. Bateman)
In the last month I've heard headlines in which scientists have announced: A) the global disasters caused by climate change have begun and it might be too late to limit the damage. B) drug resistant diseases are now a major threat and it might be too late to do anything. C) the reason it's too late is because the ruling class will never do what's needed.

In this context, I can understand Rob Ford a bit. Why the fuck not just do whatever the fuck you can get away with for as long as you can until you collapse? If the nightmare begins, will there be any gratification in having been sober, restrained and responsible during the good times?
