Clean boots, clean dishes... The modern GOP doesn't know what work is supposed to look like.

I would care if I knew ANY of this would have an impact on the election.

As it is, they'll eat it up and he'll win by 20 points.

I love his response.  Both "I was the first one there" AND "they had already distributed stuff and I didn't stop them from doing that".   Literally in back to back sentences.

Maybe DeSantis shouldn't have wasted money flying immigrants out of state. Sure seems like that cash would have been useful for the hurricane clean up effort.

I told you so, photo ops for campaign ads.

That's all they do. Who was it here that was talking about "leadership"?

Contradictions don't stop republicans from making a point.

The idea is to shovel as much bullshiat so that something will eventually stick.  Whatever plays better will be repeated and whatever doesn't play will be forgotten.

It's easy to be right when you have covered all your bases.

This reminds me. Without fail, every republican campaign ad has to include a shot of them walking four steps through the woods or a field, in freshly ironed khakis or brand new blue jeans and flannel shirt and a rifle over their shoulders while they jabber on about protecting the second amendment. They're more predictable in what they think average people dress like (and being bad at it) than white girls in Han Solo cosplay.

It's better to pay twice and fly them back in to clean up the place.

White boots? First off, fabulouuuuuuuus.

Second, wouldn't a darker color boot do a better job of hiding that you haven't really been doing anything to help anybody and ran from the car to the photo op and straight back?

I'm a crotchety old man who doesn't respond well to authority.

My response would have been along the lines of "Fark you, arrest me.  Right now, in front of the cameras."

Freshly new apron with no stains, no gloves, watch still on while using a sink, outside of a performance piece of mockery this is a failure. As a performance piece of mockery, the GQP is beyond mockery because it's like making fun of a clown. What are you supposed to do? "Haha, look at this stupid hair and floppy shoes! What a maroon!" Kind of leaves you short on options.

Giving them the one finger salute, well, that's still acceptable.

And the director has to remind them to make sure all the price tags have been taken off.

I was public works director for Key West for 6 hurricanes, one of the hardest parts of the job is keeping the farking politicians out of the farking way so we could get the work done.

This included, mayors, commissioners, state reps, a Governor and all of their suckups.

In Louisiana they call those "shrimper boots".  They're cheap and they're fairly tough.

If you take the tags off it's harder to return for a full refund after you're done with the shoot.

Nancy Sinatra required more than 200 takes to get "These boots are made for walkin" right, and it turned out great! Why don't you guys just chillax and give DeSantis a few more hurricanes to get his response right?

Yeah I gotta admit I don't give a shiat about him wearing boots. It's actually pretty sensible. Still amazed he's managing to fark up hurricane response though, even Scott knew when to shut the fark up and let the professionals do their jobs

The State of Florida had to have the pause in all civilian operations to ensure the Governor's safety and security.

It's a disaster scene, with many uncontrollable factors. They do the same thing when major politicians go through normal everyday areas. In a disaster area the potential for danger is exponentially greater.

That's why any political leader who cares stays the fark out of the way and lets the professionals and citizens do the work.

Huh, where I'm from they call them "Go-Go" boots, and they're often paired with a G-string and worn inside a cage, except they're not cheap and reasonably flimsy, also, instantly recognizable inside the industry.

I will never understand this level of incompetence from PR flaks. Anyone who leads people should know that you lead by example. By showing your people that while you give the commands, you don't order anyone to do anything you won't do yourself.

So when the chips are down, a competent PR person should want pictures of their guy in the mud, busting his ass with the rescue crews. Or at least going around with relief workers distributing supplies.

Ditch security, and your normal gaggle of aids, and get your hands dirty.  REALLY do some work, so that people can see you really care (even if you don't). Is there a little risk involved? Sure there is. But what real leader is afraid of a little risk?

From a purely cynical point of view, Ian was a massive opportunity for DeSantis to show he's ready to lead. Instead, we get a Dukakis-like photo op with those ridiculously pristine boots, people calling him "Gov Muffin Top," and a PR disaster where he has to call relief workers liars.

I used to be afraid of his presence on the national stage as the next ascendant fascist. This has turned me around 180 degrees. It ain't him folks. He's a buffoon; nothing more.
 
2022-10-04 9:23:47 AM  
This is why I get annoyed anytime a president or governor does a tour of a disaster area, or the media gives them flak for not visiting one.  The best thing a politician can do in these situations is stay the fark out of the way.

Boots make sense for the job he's cosplaying, yes. I agree. They're mocking him because when they recognize what he's wearing, they also recognize that the first time he wore the outfit was five minutes before the cameras started rolling.

Flying out of state refugee immigrants in state and then out of the state again. I bet those adult immigrants would be happy to work on the clean up/rebuilding effort right now.
