Beyond proof of his obvious addictions, Rob Ford’s latest ramblings offer a window into his soul.

And it ain’t a pretty sight.

What it shows is too clear and too ugly for even his most loyal acolytes to ignore: Ford may indeed be “just human” — as his supporters are always so quick to insist — but he’s not a very nice one.

So it’s wonderful that the beleaguered mayor may finally be getting the help he so obviously needs — if we can believe that this time, unlike all the other times, he is telling us the truth. Hopefully he is doing more than just soaking up the sun at one of the family’s Florida condos and this isn’t simply an expedient, last ditch effort to fool us all again.
