CygnusDarius: We could Florida to Cuba... Just saying.
Alexei Novikov: Actually, TFA itself says Wisconsin disagrees more, but I guess we shouldn't get in the way of the FL hate train. CHOO CHOO!
ifky: I thought nothing was getting done in Washington because it snowed.
Old enough to know better: I would have thought it was Texas, considering the crazy bastards they keep sending to DC to represent them.
Pointy Tail of Satan: NO fear! Once Ted Cruz, the Senator from Canada becomes President, all roads will be paved with gold! Cars will run on rainbows and the laughter of small children! Illegal immigrants will walk into the seas like lemmings!
red5ish: So Florida is effectively without meaningful representation in the Senate 75% of the time. How's that working out for ya?
culculhen: Wait, you're telling me a close to evenly divided state has 2 democratically elected senators who represent each an opposed segment of that electorate don't agree on much? That they each vote with the party blocks that best represent the voters who voted them in office?You really don't understand how this representative democracy works do ya?

If you are red, you are a teabagger. If you are blue, you are a bleeding heart libby.There is no discussion on this.
FTGodWin: I for one am thrilled anytime I see that DC is incapable of furthering their destruction of society.
ex-nuke: FTGodWin: I for one am thrilled anytime I see that DC is incapable of furthering their destruction of society.Agreed, I don't think anyone gets the blame, they should be getting the CREDIT for stopping the Government from farking us even more.
Billified: There are some things the Republicans get right. There are some things the Democrats get right. Florida got it right this time by having representation from both sides in the Senate.Since 1960, Florida has voted for the loser of the Presidential election only twice, picking Nixon over Kennedy in 1960 and Bush Sr. over Clinton in 1992. Their only two "bad" picks were Carter and the aforementioned Bush Sr. (Bush Jr. was up against very weak opponents for both elections, Carter can be argued since Ford was weak as well. Clinton was clearly the better candidate when Florida picked Bush Sr. over him. Nixon-Kennedy is a wash since both were great Presidents for their time.) I, like many, many Floridians I know are just as disappointed by Obama as we were by Bush Jr. Voted for both, feel let down that they didn't turn out to be the great leaders we thought, still wouldn't have voted for the other guy.Florida is America in concentrated form. We are equal parts blue and red, educated and not, urban and rural, north and south. We have the Redneck Riviera and Key West.We even have an east coast and a west coast that argue between themselves over which is the best coast. I don't really care that you Farkers use it as a joke, when I see the Florida tag, I beam with pride.
dpaul007: It's gonna be in the 70s here this weekend. I think I'll go to the beach.
