It appears that one of the most unpopular Governors in the country, and perhaps history, is looking to see if he can beat his own record for low poll numbers.
Rick Scott said he wouldn't deal with his hunt to replace his last scandal-ridden Lt. Gov. until after the legislative session was over. Now it's decision time, and he's floating the name of a possible replacement that would most certainly rival Jennifer Carroll in the scandal, and WTH? department:
Governor Rick Scott hasn't picked a new Lieutenant Governor, and it's not clear whether he will, but he says at least one Florida politician would make a superb choice.
On AM Tampa Bay, the governor responded to a question by saying West "is a great American and a great patriot... he'd be a great Lieutenant Governor."
Well, he's certainly a favorite of the hard-core Tea Party extremist wing, and has so many qualities that the Republican Party values and requires these days: Intolerance, hate, being an avid Obama-basher-for-big-bucks, inability to focus on facts and the issues that are important to Americans, and a spinner of conspiracies that would rival Glenn Beck on his more severely incoherent days.
Here are just a few examples, in case you were somehow able to erase them from your memory. Although, if you did and prefer to keep it that way, I would recommend you not take this stroll down memory lane hell.
To those who like to live dangerously, well strap on that tinfoil hat! Here you go.
May the farce be with you.
