FL Gov Rick Scott: Allen West would be a "great" pick as his Lieutenant Governor
Gary Stein at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel alerts us to this, this morning:


May 15, 2013


Gov. Rick Scott cant be serious. But boy, I sure wish he was.

Scott the other day said former Rep. Allen West would be a great pick as his lieutenant governor. I am not making that up.

West is doing some sort of work these days since losing his seat in Congress. One of his spokespeople told me West had no comment when I asked if he would be interested in the lieutenant governors job.

.....

The public tossed him out, obviously tiring of his mouth. But he was a journalists dream.

Scott, of course, cant be serious. Surely, he is just sucking up to the hard right and tea party, who he has turned off lately. Just mentioning Allen Wests name makes the tea party all giggly and excited.

Certainly Scott cant be serious. The job of lt. governor well, what exactly is the job, other than to be quiet and collect a state paycheck? Certainly Scott wouldnt think Allen West would be quiet.

And could you see a Rick Scott-Allen West ticket in 2014? No. And I dont think Scott really could, either.

But he has tossed the name out there.

.....






Florida Governor Rick Scott






Yeah. Rick Scott thinks Allen West would make a GREAT Lieutenant Governor, since his last LG resigned in March 2013 because of ties to illegal internet gambling.



Wake us when this entire right wing nightmare in Florida is over.

1. It's like we're stuck in a Carl Hiaasen novel.
Seriously.

2. Howard Troxler sure picked a fine time to leave us.
Gawd, I miss that guy.

Speaking of Carl Hiaasen, here's his latest column.



Hat tip to Mark Twain, or whoever the brilliant observer was who noted this truth:


'Politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.'


We are so deep in this muck, Enthusiast.
