Doug Ford parody

Doug Ford mayoral campaign gets first parody website

That was fast. Though he's hardly said a word since replacing his brother as a candidate for mayor, Doug Ford's campaign has already got a parody website. The site popped up a few days ago and is getting steadily more popular. The slogan? "Elect Doug Ford: The Less Likeable One." Oh boy.

The site is as bare bones as it gets, featuring choice quotations from the elder Ford's time as a city councillor. But there really are some gems in the collection. Take, for instance, Ford's views on racism: "You can be racist against people who have a drinking problem. You can be racist against people that eat little red apples." Or what about his plans for the Port Lands? "The Ferris wheel is just a cash cow." And don't forget his solemn statement that the day his brother was stripped of his mayoral powers was "the worst day in Canadian history for democracy."
