The interview between Carol Off of CBC’s As It Happens and new Toronto mayor Rob Ford is reaching near legendary status. For those who don’t want to bother listening to audio of an extremely distracted man trying to coach football and answer questions on his politics at the same time, the Torontoist blog has typed a transcript. A sample:
Rob Ford: Yeah, it’s just people are sick and tired of the wasteful spending. People are sick and tired of wasteful spending, that’s the bottom line, that’s what it comes down.
Carol Off: Well there—
Rob Ford: You know, I’m the only one that can go down there [Inaudible, then, yelling:] Just go get changed! Go! Out! And get changed! Don’t worry about the water right now. [Pause.] Sorry.
