Best line of the month

From my brother Angelo: “Praising Ford for the good campaign he ran is like congratulating the weatherman for a sunny day.”

Brilliant.

    LOL that was pretty sharp. But there is one difference – and that is Ford made his own sunshine.

  3. Angelo noted the ABF team were responsible for a large part of Ford’s success. Do you feel responsible for helping Ford win as Angelo cited in his article?

    “The masterminds of his campaign were his opponents, who outmanoeuvred themselves by driving head on into irrelevance, and by David Miller, who invited Torontonians to vote against him every time they drove along St. Clair, when they hit a speed bump (even while driving in their driveways), when they paid taxes or renewed a licence plate.”

    I like this line:

    ” Ford was like a hunter that found himself, by coincidence, right in the middle of pack of drunken rabbits ? and he didn?t miss a shot.”

    He ran a good campaign. And, he was helped by opponents who did not. But, after all the spinning is done a proof is a proof and a win is a win.

  5. I thought this was the best line by a commenter on Maclean’s: ?Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same.?

  6. Off topic: My comment about the Vaughan by-election:

    In 2008, the Conservative candidate got 34.33 percent of the vote. Lous MacKenzie (ret.) stated that a star candidate can swing the vote by up to five percentage points. If Fantino gets more than 39.44 percent of the votes, it will be a mild defeat for Ignatieff. It will be a major defeat for Ignatieff if Fantino wins the riding and gets more than 39.44 percent of the votes.

    I like my CAPTCHA Code: UCFK.
