Anyone but Rob Ford

There's no doubt that the Americans secretly feel relieved that their neighbours to the north also have an embarrassing politician, but the Canadians are aiming to wipe out the Rob Ford-shaped smudge on their otherwise respectable political track record. A new faux mayoral campaign, which has been launched by an online organisation dubbed No Ford Nation, presents a series of dishevelled men as viable alternatives to the current Toronto mayor.        

And the Ford hate doesn't stop there. The No Ford Nation website also features a collection of cartoon clips of the mayor backed by soundbytes from actual press conferences.

While we might not have any politicians of the distinct calibre of Ford, this kind of political satire certainly makes us look forward to the comedic frivolity our upcoming elections will bring.
