I was very amused to discover the latest poll of Gov. Lex Luthor’s Rick Scott’s job approval rating in Florida:
A new Sunshine State News poll in Florida confirms what other recent surveys have found: Gov. Rick Scott (R) is horribly unpopular.
Scott has a 58% disapproval rating among Florida voters while just 27% approve of the way he’s doing his job.
Yup, 27% is the consensus number for what percentage of the country are wingnuts (It’s also close to the percentage that are fundamentalist Christians, which I’m sure is no mere accident). This is a good news/bad news sort of situation for Democrats: the bad news is that Scott has probably hit his bottom and there’s likely nothing he can do to push his popularity down much further, which is to say that there’s nowhere he can go put up. The good news is: he’s Rick fucking Scott. He’s so politically self-destructive he’s George W. Bush times Scott Walker cubed. The only question I have is: is Charlie Crist going to try to take Scott out in the Republican primary, or is he going to run as a Democrat in the 2016 general election? Okay, I admit it, I just want an excuse to post this clip:
It remains hilarious to me. But, honestly, David Byrne really is kind of a dick.
