Scott is in a tough spot, he needs to distance himself from the TeaParty if he wants to gain a second term but he doesn't quite understand how to do it.
His worst nightmare is having to face another Republican in a primary.
I haven't heard any news about potential (D) candidates__Crist maybe, seems like he's lost most of his popularity. Alex Sink's husband died a few months back, I think she's finished with politics.
She was a lacklustre candidate in my opinion. We sure could use a governor with some personality; I can't imagine Scott getting re elected, even though he's throwing money at teachers and education and accepted the Obamacare money.

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which Our government was founded."

Abraham Lincoln (1809-65), U.S. President.
Speech, 18 Dec. 1840, to Illinois House of Representatives

Until Congressional politicians reform Cannabis laws or ANY UnConstitutional 'law', jury nullification is one of the only ways to avoid imposing cruel "mandatory minimum" penalties on Cannabis users, growers and sellers who don't deserve to go to prison.

So, if you ever serve on a jury where the defendant is accused of a Cannabis crime, don't forget about jury nullification. Tell the other jurors you don't have to convict, even if all the evidence points to guilt, if you don't agree with the application of the 'law' in this instance. And if you can't swing your peers to your way of thinking, at least you can cause the jury to return a hung verdict.

"Jurors should acquit, even against the judge's instruction... if exercising their judgement with discretion and honesty they have a clear conviction the charge of the court is wrong." ~ Alexander Hamilton, 1804

"It is not only the juror's right, but his duty to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgement and conscience, though in direct opposition to the instruction of the court." ~ John Adams, 1771

Well, he was the "decider" after all...I liked Romney saying he stood by whatever he'd said even though he didn't remember having said it.

I forgot to mention that Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer (D) who was sort of testing the waters has decided to stick with Orlando. He could easily defeat Scott but as I said governor of Florida requires real work__not like Texas where the only thing Governors do is sign death warrants.

Leo, honey, what about we take a day off from this banal banter and just get under the covers naked with some Chipotle mustard and some bagel chips and watch old movies... like... Ferris Beuhller (sp?) or something? I'm trying not to seem dated... which is not that hard since I haven't had a date since last week when that tall thin French girl woke up screaming and ran out of the cabana because I'd gone to sleep with top of a George Bush bobblehead on my winky and it was poking her in the ass again.... as he is wont to do...

With automatic budget cuts set to kick in tomorrow, here's a really short version of today's episode of Sequester Theater: In the Senate, Democrats and Republicans will hold dueling votes on plans to avert the sequester. The Democratic plan will likely get more than 50 votes, and the Republican plan certainly won't. Despite getting a majority, the Democratic plan will likely fail, however—unless Republicans decide not to filibuster it. In the House, nothing will happen.
Here's an even shorter version: Congress is completely dysfunctional. The only people who are doing anything remotely serious to stop the sequester are Senate Democrats, but they can't even put pressure on House Republicans because a handful of old-timers blocked filibuster reform, giving Senate Republicans veto power.

Oh, sweetie, there's a perfectly simple explanation for all that! That darned old liberal media went to journalism school and learned a bunch of rules and shit, many of which are designed to protect the "mark" from unnecessary embarrassment or harassment. A code of conduct if you will. That's why we turned our heads when Dan Rather tripped up while collecting the very real dirt on l'il George when he got arrested in Alabama for drugs and coulodn't show up for National Guard duty cause he was out pickin' up trash on the highway (all true, but would've required the "tough" questions.)

Now when you go to journalism school in the basement of the mormon church... you are - reasonably enough - not bound by any such strictures. Quite the contrary you're bound only by your three wives and your holy underwear.
