Remember The Last Time Rick Scott Worked The Refs At A Gubernatorial Debate?

Remember when he proved he didn't know the difference between a Blackberry and an iPad?

Rick Scott was always a whiny ass titty baby, even way back in 2010 when he debated Alex Sink in his last gubernatorial campaign. Look at the video, how prissy he looks as he tells his aid, "So we can get people who work for us to give us messages?" Ha, ha!

People are trying to make a big deal that Alex Sink's campaign relayed a forbidden message to her with a cell phone during the CNN debate.

​But people seem to be missing the really scary part: Rick Scott thought the message was sent via an "iPod."
A campaign aide named Brian May sneaked a message to Sink with a cell phone through her makeup artist. Sink canned May after the debate.

Scott noticed this peccadillo and ratted her out on the air after the commercial break.

"The rule was no one was supposed to get messages during the break, and your campaign did during the break with an iPad or, or, an iPod," he said.

Come now, can Florida afford a governor who doesn't know the difference between a phone, an iPad, and an iPod? That kind of shocking ignorance simply cannot stand.

OK, so it's not that big of a deal. And to be fair to Scott, he identified the device as a BlackBerry to his aide in the video CNN provided of the commercial break. Why he switched it up once he was on the air we may sadly never know.

If only he'd been such a stickler for the rules when his company was stealing all that money from Medicare!
