Nick Kouvalis and how to get an Idiot in Office

Nick Kouvalis, Rob Ford's campaign manager, tells how they pulled the wool over our eyes got His Lord Mayor Alleged Fat F*ck Ford elected...

Mr. Kouvalis, meanwhile, said he knew Rob Ford, who loves football and knows how much it costs to change a tire, couldn’t win a policy debate.

“The Fords are grass-roots guys,” he said. “All of these guys are more articulate than Rob. Most of those words when you are talking about transportation have four syllables, and those guys, Doug and Rob, don’t do so well.”

An illuminating passage on conservative reading skills:

Mr. Kouvalis also gave a glimpse of the working conditions in the Ford mayoral office, describing how he recruited staff for the campaign. He said he gave candidates a 300-page Conservative electoral strategy book to read, and if they scored 75% on a test on its contents, they could get an interview.

Astounding. Conservatives can read. And here I thought Atlas Shrugged was longer..

Ayn Rand Mr. Ford, an American writer? Oh never mind...

“I wanted young kids because I could pay them nothing and they would do what I told them to,” he said. “I paid them $500 a week and I wanted 60 or 70 hours a week out of them.”

Nice. Pure conservatism.
