That's the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard in my life.

Radio call-in shows are the worst.

OK, J, I give up. Why are radio call-in shows the worst?

Because people fucking call in to them.

I popped over to CBC Toronto's website to see what was happening in our fair town tonight -- not much, apparently -- and there was a tantalizing link to an audio clip from today's Ontario Today noon-time call-in show on Radio 1. It was tantalizing because the blurb suggested that some caller had her municipal-election vote earned by the Brothers Ford.

Naturally, I clicked on it.

Caller: I just didn't want anything to do with them [in the last election], and watching them survive the barrage that this town has thrown at them, for every little thing, y'know? I mean, some of those councillors could be drug-tested themselves, y'know? I don't think any one of them could be just singled-out. So I've watched them survive this, and I think, as a family, they represent something that all of us could take a little note from, there, y'know? They stick together. They never turn on each other, and a lot of people will turn on you if you're falling down. So I will vote for them this time, because... I think, if they were given a chance, and everybody just let them go, and do what they were attempting... got voted in on, I think that they would do a good job.

Host: So did you vote for Rob Ford in the last municipal election?

Caller: No, I didn't. I voted for, uh, Smitherman.

Host: And you're willing to give Doug Ford your vote?

Caller: That's right. Because of the way they've behaved as a family. Like, these guys stick together. If they would just give them, as a city, a chance to do what they initially set out to do, and stop picking at every little thing -- how petty can ya get, really? It's embarassing to see the way people have treated these people.

Host: Some people would argue that some of this is one's own making... cavorting with suspect people, opening yourself up to extortion, I don't want to repeat all that, but you've heard it. Is it piddly though, really?

Caller: Yeah, I think so. Because I think if you took everybody down that way, there isn't one person on that council that would come up with glowing colours. Not one.

There's just so much stupidity here. I can't even begin. I mean, I've got work in the morning.
