Toronto Mayor Rob Ford: "I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence. I have struggled with this for some time." = I need help, to have a (hic!) time-out from running for reelection, to have some (hic!) rehab. Must defeat whom? The bloody cirrhosis! God, I'll have withdrawal!
