I think that Mamma Ford's drive to have a political dynasty will trump the above issues and we will see another Ford running. I woudl agree that it would probably be a male. I think that it will be Doug, regardless of what he has said.
Erm, "sexism." There, I said it.
K - Fos are all adults now. They are not girls.
Airheads they may be, yes. But is an airhead any dumber than a butthead? The male Fords have demonstrated those extensively.
There are male butthead voters who chose all 3 male Fords. Why wouldn't airhead voters relate to a Ford airhead?
Until lizangel showed up and introduced us to Mikey the person, we had nothin, and nor did anyone else. We know now he may be a nice kid but is woefully inexperienced for the job. No 20 year-old would have ran for it. He was put there. But which Ford now has a political career? His uncles are both toast on a stick.
I guarantee that if a K Fo goes for Ward 2, there will be plenty of folks running interference in the name of anti-sexism, equal opportunity, and alternative political image, even if they don't agree with their politics or lack thereof.
And don't forget the Kool-Aid, or the power of the selfie.
ETA - I don't think Mikey would stand up well in a debate. Best not risk it anytime soon. I think an ex-lingerie football player has more experience with "haters " y'know?
