Run, Rob, run: Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who last year admitted to smoking crack cocaine in “one of my drunken stupors,” filed to run for re-election in October. “I’ve been the best mayor that this city has ever had,” Ford said.

“Yes. Yes you are,” said the writers for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Daily Show,” “The Colbert Report,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Saturday Night Live,” the North American Federation of Stand-Up Comics, the authors of Mad Libs, your co-worker who thinks he can do impressions and Rob Ford’s mom.
