    Yes, Rick Scott is a crook. Yes, this is another shitty giveaway to one of his supporters.

    But dammit, I am sick and tired of these throwaway assumptions:
     

    If nobody ends up in jail because of this, than it's Florida's own fault. You elect crooks to write your laws, they're going to write crooked laws.
    First and foremost because it assumes our elections are completely honest. If Rick Scott is a first-class felon--and I don't know anyone who doubts that at this point-- then we have to stop assuming that he somehow won an honest election. I've been asking for years, and I still can't find anyone who will cop to voting for him.

     And if he didn't really win honestly, then this shit is not the voters' fault--except to the extent that they haven't stormed Tallahassee with pitchforks and torches yet.

    Really, I'm just sick of the whole Florida-voter-as-whipping-post motif. Can you please find another way to wrap up these types of missives?

        and I'm still here.

        You know, somehow, I just don't think it's an unpopular sentiment, whether or not you agree with how many IF qualifiers make your assumption ridiculous ;)
