And our guys disagree -- they cancel each other out -- more than almost anyone else. They are at odds nearly 75 percent of the time.

I do find that a tiny bit surprising, if for no other reason than I think Bill Nelson is a bit of weenie.

We could Florida to Cuba... Just saying.

Actually, TFA itself says Wisconsin disagrees more, but I guess we shouldn't get in the way of the FL hate train. CHOO CHOO!

I for one am thrilled anytime I see that DC is incapable of furthering their destruction of society.

So Florida is effectively without meaningful representation in the Senate 75% of the time. How's that working out for ya?
 
2014-01-23 06:09:19 PM
Yup... first guess was because of Ted Cruz, Rubio was second on the list. Then I saw the Florida tag and bumped him up.

I would have thought  it was Texas, considering the crazy bastards they keep sending to DC to represent them.

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!

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?

Dude, don't you know what that blue-red state map is for.  If you are red, you are a teabagger.  If you are blue, you are a bleeding heart libby.

There is no discussion on this.

Exactly! Much credit to whoever keeps Congress from doing us again.

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.

Florida sucks, too.

Florida is such a horrible place!  I am going to go scream that on my front porch right now.. in shorts and flip flops at 2am.. biatchES.

The really fun thing about FL is how quickly you can go from $5 million McMansiontown, complete with stuck up shiatwizards in Bentleys, to seeing lifted bro trucks and trailer parks (Wellington to Loxahatchee, for example.

Yeah, Wisconsin is worse, but hey, any excuse to bring out the Florida tag and that oh-so-farking-witty Bugs Bunny.gif for the rest to point at and mock.

Keep laughing. We'll be busy not paying state income tax, wearing shorts and flip-flops in January, and fleecing all the tourists that head south to warm up and pay homage to the Mouse.

How's that polar vortex working out for you? -20F with the windchill? Snowpocalypse? Winter Storm Xerxes?

It's gonna be in the 70s here this weekend. I think I'll go to the beach.

I share my fellow Florida Farker's pride in our "special" tag.  Every time it appears, I stand up and sing "Oh, Flo-ri-da!" to the tune of "Oh, Canada!"

/my dog gives me a deeply concerned look, when I do...

Some of us really like winter sports, although I could do with temps more in the 20s. It's a little too cold to go out and do stuff /sigh
