The man who brags that Florida is "where woke goes to die" will find that most voters aren't as batshit crazy as the feral Republican primary voters.

Looks like Rhonda Santis is going to find that what works for the GOP primary nutjobs is not exactly a winner with voters in a general election. Here's hoping! Via

As Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis prepares to run for president in 2024, a new poll suggests that he may be overplaying his hand with his war on “wokeness.”

The poll, conducted by Ipsos and published last week in USA Today, shows that 56% of Americans consider “woke” a positive term, meaning “to be informed, educated on, and aware of social injustices.” Even more than a third of Republicans agree. Just 39% agreed with a negative definition: “to be overly politically correct and police others’ words.”

Many Republican leaders have made “anti-wokeness” a cornerstone of their political agenda, but DeSantis has led the pack by upending the lives and liberties of Floridians through authoritarian book bans and speech codes. “Florida is where woke goes to die,” DeSantis crowed when he was sworn in for a second term earlier this year.

But if most Americans believe “woke” is a positive term, why would they want a president to suffocate it, and replace it with autocratic power grabs and far right curricula? DeSantis won his gubernatorial reelection handily, but he might be a little high on his own supply.

Hopefully Uncle Joe and the rest of the Biden team will smother this antiwoke nonsense, because the thought of Rhonda in the White House raises my blood pressure sky high.

And who would think that Nooners would create the next anti-DeSantis meme? While the rest of her article kisses his ass and praises him as presidential material, the dolphin lady writing in the Wall Street Journal came up with what will become a classic line about DeSatan.

She said he "carries a vibe...that he might unplug your life support to re-charge his cellphone."

Yep. And then some!
