Rob Ford is a neverending distraction for Canadian politics. He has never been more of a mascot than this week in New Orleans, where he was featured on a Mardi Gras float.
Rob Ford parade float.
The float, seen last Friday, features Ford (actual size), smoking a crack pipe with headlines quotes reading “So I smoked a little crack” and “I was in a drunken stupor.”

Also mocked, via paintings on the float, were two more of our easier targets; Justin Bieber, clutching a smoky bong and former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson holding a sign reading “Remember me?”

Ford stays in the news this week my being featured on Jimmy Kimmel, as well as challenging Toronto’s police chief to come and arrest him. He has also called for the release of the cost to taxpayers for the investigation into his activities, since the crack-cocaine video scandal began.

The “mayor” is running for re-election, to the stunned reaction of most of Canada.
