Governor Rick Scott of Florida is not a popular guy in Florida right now and this video is evidence of that fact. It's a meaningless spring training game and for him to be booed there is pretty chilly, indeed.
Gov. Rick Scott received a chilly reception while throwing the first pitch at a spring training game between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.
Scott was greeted by boos, mixed with modest applause, at Saturday's game in Tampa. The governor was wearing Yankee's garb when he delivered a straight fastball.
He did not comment after the pitch.
Scott has done a number of stupid things, but attacking collective bargaining rights hasn't been one of them. That might be his only smart move at this point.
His latest move to put the government into people's lives by forcing drug testing is pretty insane. Isn't he supposed to be for limited government?
In Florida, Felonious Monk (A/K/A Rick Scott) is serving up a policy of mandatory, random drug tests for all state employees reporting to the executive branch (as well as anyone receiving public assistance) that will serve the twin purposes of humliating and demonizing the state workers Republicans so despise, while also potentially lining his pockets by pushing tens of thousands of new custormers to the chain of walk-in clinics he has temporarily signed over to his wife. However, Scott’s push could very well be … wait for it … illegal.
Besides the fact that Joy-Ann's post exposes the naked greed and powerlust in Florida, I had to share it just because the name Felonious Monk fits Scott so well. Well, doesn't it?
Sports talk radio is going to play a big role during the 2012 election because many of the hosts are right-wingers in the mold of a Curt Schilling. Just an early heads up.
