Gov. Rick Scott delivers remarks at .decimal, Inc. (pronounced "dot-decimal") during a visit to the medical device manufacturer's facility in Sanford, Monday, April 29, 2013. Scott was pitching his his plan to eliminate sales taxes that manufacturers pay
Just when you feel like you are down and out and the rain won't stop pouring, a journalist writes an article to make you really smile.

I am speaking of this article that appeared in The Tampa Bay Times with several paragraphs of pure gold.  This one particuliar paragraph got me to smile the most.

After the events of recent days, no Hillsborough deputy will want to be within 1,000 feet of the governor.

But if they want to see Scott, it won't be a problem. He's as close as the nearest TV, with a news anchor in the background, snickering

Scott is the object of riducle for appearing as a grinning idiot refusing to answer questions about ANYTHING.  He, himself reminds voters of his infamous 75 times non answers to questions of his CEO days of the biggest medicare fraud case in the history of America.  Not much has changed when he avoids answering questions.
I honestly believe you could ask old Rick Scott, are you a man or woman, and he would say, " Could you repeat the question".    

Rick Scott ran ads against Charlie Crist about drudging up old news of when he had Bozo hair and did that deposition in Nashville  years ago, but it is Scott himself who keeps reminding voters that he is clueless and a laughing stock of Florida.  Keep it up Scott, people get tired of being laughed at  and you are their ring leader of ridicule.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
