(Newser) – So Rob Ford admits to smoking crack cocaine, "probably in one of my drunken stupors," but insists he won't step down as mayor of Toronto. On the Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart offered up the only possible reaction to that: "This guy's got huge balls." And he had a message for Toronto, too. "I heard that your Mayor Ford's approval ratings went up after it came out that he smoked crack. You know what that makes you as a city, Toronto?" Stewart asked. "Enablers, eh?"

He went on to ask if Toronto was, perhaps, waiting for Ford to start texting pictures of his private parts à la Anthony Weiner before giving him the boot. Then he turned serious: "Mayor Ford's a lot of fun to ridicule. But my guess is, not a lot of fun to eulogize," Stewart said. "And that's where this thing's headed. Now, even though I will lose precious material, please go to rehab." (Read more Jon Stewart stories.)
