As long as being stupid is not a crime, Bachmann has at least (probably) never committed a felony.  Scott can't necessarily say the same.  Note: committing is not the same as "getting caught after committing".

Is that last period in the right place?  I can never remember that rule.

EZ1923: Uranus Is Huge!: EZ1923: Uranus Is Huge!: Governor Scott could have Toby Keith read that op-ed as a campaign ad and he would gain derp votes.

Derp doesn't respond to "left-leaning" crap like facts and logic.

Toby Keith is a Democrat. Or was, until idiots who can't imagine a liberal in the South kept doing what you just did. He's now registered as an independent. I guess if enough people tell you that you're not one of them, you eventually believe them.

That wasn't a post insulting Toby Keith. It was a post insulting Rick Scott voters.

But feel free to insert a different country music artist into that sentence if it makes you feel better, Mrs Keith.

How would doing that make it better? I don't like much in the way of what passes for country nowadays, but I do know pigeonholing when I see it.

"In October 2008, Keith told CMT that he had left the Democratic Party and has re-registered as an independent. "My party that I've been affiliated with all these years doesn't stand for anything that I stand for anymore," he says. "They've lost any sensibility that they had, and they've allowed all the kooks in. So I'm going independent." He also told CMT that he would likely vote for the Republican ticket, partially because of his admiration for Sarah Palin"

REO-Weedwagon : My family lives in the Florida Panhandle. They'll vote for Scott because he's a Republican.

If they are from Panama City or Fort Walton/Destin, a big part of that might be because the monopoly local newspapers support Scott and all things republican much in the manner that FOXNEWS does nationally. From those two sister papers, (panama city news herald and northwest florida daily news) all state news is given a republican spin and a lot of the supposed "news" out of Tallahassee are actually press releases straight from the governor's offices. In addition, these two papers pretty much control the elections with their biased election coverage. The past of many scandal ridden politicians are never mentioned, even if pointed questions arise in the debates put on by the chambers of commerce or league of women voters; while at the same time those same thieving politicians will be highly praised in letters to the editor in the days leading up to the election. In Panama City, there is a core of about 10,000 republicans that vote party line regardless, but many of the rest of them will not tolerate corruption and will vote out crooks---but they have to know about them to do so. These papers play a big part in stifling the news and protecting their buddies--one of whom is Scott.

Toby Keith just understood that the Democrats were afraid of a strong conservative woman and that Obama is a cipher who is palling around with terrorists when he isn't being Bush's third and fourth terms and also too elitism.

Or, more likely, he saw the level of backlash against Obama amongst his core fans, and decided that the best PR move would be to distance himself.

I'm not going to try to defend my (sometimes) home state but the psychosis of Florida isn't just about lines on a map. There's North Florida, which is basically the South, Central Florida, where the Mouse and creative people reside, Tampa Bay, Miami, etc. There are different flavors of idiocy.

Nah dude, it's not the media. I grew up there. It's the culture. It's very Christian and very military. The media reflects the people. It's one of the reasons I fled that place. Lovely up there, don't get me wrong, but it's very very conservative and it's just depressing for anyone who thinks otherwise.

I don't know, every single piece of press about this person has been negative and you can't simply blame it on the "liberal media", it's simply reporting on shiat he did and said. But he still weaseled into a 40% or whatever it is approval rating.

There's unfortunately a chance.  FL has more than its share of old people, and they tend to vote conservative, along with all of the rednecks up north who do the same.

At the same time, the state has been starting to trend blue, and went to Obama the last two elections, so there's a shot.  The Democratic candidate will just have to saturate the airwaves with messages about what a lying POS Scott is, let people know he's the reason health care and home insurance costs have gone up, and refute every single point he tries to make.  Not everyone will listen to the truth, but hopefully enough will.

Big surprise, liberal media machine is trying to lay groundwork to get a Democrat elected governor.

The truth is that Governor Scott has pretty much stayed out of the spotlight.  The economy is on the upswing, not due to any of his policies, but he'll still be able to claim credit.  Education in Florida is still dismal, but we are laying groundwork for improvements.  Crime is lower than it has been in the past.  its a very mediocre picture but Scott really hasn't done anything terrible so he might get re-elected.

He turned down federal funds that would have given us a nice light rail system and created tons of jobs, he's allowed home and flood insurance companies to raise rates dramatically, and he prevented the state from instituting an ACA exchange and turned down the federal funds that came along with it, which will result in much higher healthcare insurance premiums in Florida than in the states that have cooperated and instituted the ACA policies.

Add on to that he's cut education funding, given corporations major tax breaks, and has shown again and again that he cares about big business and those that grease his palms more than the actual citizens.

He's a dick, and needs to go.
