Rick “let’s get to work” Scott won the Republican primary for governor of Florida last night.
I did not vote for him. I’d vowed ‘no career politicians’ this year but even flip-flopping career pol Bill McCollum looked better than Scott. But it’s like Russian roulette; you know you’re going to get screwed any way you play…
I didn’t vote for Scott for a number of reasons, including his obvious lying about Columbia/HCA’s fraud. I heard an interview in which he vehemently denied that he’d even been questioned about the matter. Add at least two robo-calls a day for weeks. Oh, and there were fliers in the mail every day as well. Big, glossy bitches that really didn’t say anything.
The best we can hope for with Scott is that he carries his money moxie over from the private sector. Floridians can use it; the market value of our house was just cut in half, according to the county tax assessor.
