He denied, denied, denied until last week when the Toronto Police finally confirmed that they did have a video of Ford hitting the pipe.
For has a little media scrum on Monday where he prompts the reporters to ask him if he has ever smoked crack and he confirms, yes he has...not sure when, probably during one of his drunken stupors. Obviously.
He then held a legitimate press conference where people hoped that he would announce his resignation, as any sane politician would do at this point. Instead, Ford confirms again that he has smoked crack, clears the names of his family and staff and then tells Toronto to get over it and vote for him again in 2014, because old Ford ain't going anywhere (paraphrasing).
You can get the ins and out of the whole situation, but the most entertaining part of any public figure's demise is the late night jokers using their despair as a punch line. I am not thrilled by all the comparisons to Chris Farley...Farley was dope...fat, but dope.
Jimmy Kimmel give you tips on "How to Tell if Your Mayor is Smoking Crack"
Stephen Colbert teaches us what 'putting the past behind us' means.
Craig Ferguson rambles...talks about Canada.
Jon Stewart talked about the Ford video situation before Ford's public confession...
...but don't worry, he went back for round two to talk about how big Ford's balls were for stating that he was going to run again for Mayor in 2014.
I will say, the funniest part of this whole this is Rob Ford using his crack admission to soap box for his reelection. I was in hysterics while he was talking. They better have 100% turn out in the next election.
