You have to love this beautiful state I live in. We have gorgeous weather, beautiful beaches, great sports teams…
And the stupidest politicians in the country! And trust me, if you listen to the news lately, that’s a pretty tough pill to swallow.
This week I’d like to announce three Florida winners of the Stupid Person Award.
We have our very own Gov. Crist (I like to refer to him as Gov. Lisp), whose only goal is to go as far in politics as possible, issues be damned.
The same Governor who went over twenty five years as a single man (following a short marriage to a lesbian).
The same Governor who enjoyed a whirlwind romance and married just about the time John McCain and the Republican Party started tossing his name against the Vice Presidential nominee wall to see if it would stick.
The same Governor whose “wife” never moved into the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee after a state-paid honeymoon in Europe. And still hasn’t.
The same Governor who, after being dissed by the McCain camp, decided to ignore his constituents and started a campaign for the Senate in 2010.
The same Governor who, nestled securly in his closet, supported Amendment 2, denying gays the right to marriage in the state.
Moving on to our next recepients of the Stupid Person Award.
The co-winners of this week’s Stupid Person award are State Senator Carey Baker, a Republican (duh) from Eustis, and his buddy, State Representative Scott Plakon, of Longwood.
What has Mr. Baker decided to do?
Mr. Baker has decided that the people of Florida don’t need health care reform of any type.
Together, they have introduced legislation in the form of a Constitutional Amendment in our State Legislature, HR 37, which would nullify any chance for Florida citizens to benefit from health care coverage when President Obama and Congress pass it.
States Mr. Baker’s legislation:
To preserve the freedom of all residents of the state to provide for their own health care:
“A law or rule shall not compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system”
Hello? Mr. Baker? Can you climb out from under that sewer in Eustis and understand something?
There are, count them, over 3.6 million uninsured in Florida.
That’s 20.2% of the state’s 18.1 million people who are without health insurance.
