I would vote for Biden in a 'Weekend at Bernies' scenario. Without question.

I stated, before 2020, and Biden becoming the nominee that I'd vote for a ham sandwich before I'd EVER vote for Trump, so no.

Heck, it doesn't even have to be newly expired. I'd take a ghost dog.

If dead people can vote down South, as the Republicans have claimed they have, then I don’t see why the dead person can’t support their fellow dead person with a vote. Seems only fair.

Thank you Jeff. While DeSantis is clearly unfit for any public office, one has to wonder about Florida voters. Prior to DeSantis they elected Governor Medicare Fraud, and then later thought he'd be a terrific U.S. Senator.

The only saving grace is that by elevating incompetent, racist, climate and science-denying so-called leadership, Florida will likely have about 3 electoral votes after rising sea levels and the next pandemic (sadly) diminish the number of living Floridians.

I’m a Floridian & I despaired when DeSatan won almost as much as when thump won. Before that we had Gov Rick Scott & that was bad enough. Now that creep is our Senator & helping to format getting rid of social security.

Lots of dumb, mean, deplorable people in Florida. The Villages are the worst (& not likely to be under water any time soon.)

It is remarkable that so many retired people support corrupt incompetents working to destroy Social Security and Medicare. It really is like chickens for Colonel Sanders.

Expand full comment

Some retired folk were so worried about the effects of TV and video games on the youth in the past, turns out they were also quite susceptible to those persuasions (fox news) themselves.

Expand full comment

I know a few. They think social security cuts are for others not yet collecting.

Aside from the extremist/criminal/MAGA part of the GOP that really defines the rest of them -since Reagan. "I've got mine, screw everyone else."

The Villiages is a cesspool of trumpers. While they may not get flooded out, I understand they live almost on top of a huge sinkhole. If I’m not mistaken, they had to close one section. Can’t remember if that area had opened or not but as their fresh water goes away, sinkholes will only get worse. So there is hope perhaps.

What a wonderful thought.

There’s still LOTS of fresh water in Florida. ZephyrHills is bottling it as fast as they can.

That area has all kinds of lakes & springs. Before Disneyworld everyone vacationed at Silver Springs. It’s also where they filmed Tarzan.

Expand full comment

Thanks for the info. People are leaving but they are also flooding into the state. It’s still a fragile ecosystem though and won’t take human abuse forever.

Expand full comment

Very true. It’s getting way too built up. I only lived there for 5 years. The Springs were the only nice part.

Expand full comment

We winter in Sarasota. Omg, we love this city, but the trumpies are thicker than mosquitos here.

Expand full comment

All these Trumpies and Desantis lovers in Florida are transplants who retired here from northern states. They're lifelong Republican voters. I was shocked when, on my wife's wishes, we moved to the state. Not a southern accent to be heard, they're all from Ohio or Pa. Are there any Republicans left up there?

Expand full comment

There are plenty of transplanted NJ Retrumplicans in Floriduh as well…..and plenty still living in NJ.

I know a few down here also!

Expand full comment

Depends on the area. Central & Northern Florida have LOTS of old time native southern Repubs.

It’s like an extension of Alabama & just as bright.

Expand full comment

The Panhandle is basically South Alabama. Rest of the peninsula seems like mostly recent or 3rd generation transplants from my experience. Fernandina Beach area is pretty much unrecognizable today.

Expand full comment

At least I had brains enough to get the hell out while the ‘gettin was good’! DeStupid has ruined that state, the educational system, agriculture, and tourism. What the hell is left besides a state full of communism that he’s pushing on people that are too stupid to know better!

My guess is FL didn't think he'd be a great senator, HE thought he'd be great. I mean really, the nerve of that guy.

And FL probably voted for him from name recognition.

I often say any form of meaningful democracy requires an educated, informed, and engaged society. You can't just vote for the person with the coolest yard sign. You might end up with George Santos, Rick Scott, DeFascist, Josh Hawley, Marsha Blackburn, MTG, Boebert, Gaetz, or Jordan (and other incompetent, corrupt, democracy-hating garbage.)

Expand full comment

Oh, man--we have to get rid of Hawley. Even Jack Danforth, a principled, intelligent old-school guy who sponsored Hawley--says doing so is the biggest regret of his life.

Expand full comment

This is at the heart of most of what’s happening today that is distressing. So how do you get an educated, informed, and engage society? It goes back to the educational system. Additionally, it is the role of the media in spreading all the crap they do.

Expand full comment

The education system must be de-politicized. There is no excuse for a country that claims it is a “beacon of democracy” to be too frightened to teach actual history. We should be prioritizing funding for education, healthcare, housing, climate, and other imperatives instead of spending more than half of every tax dollar on “defense”. And we should not tolerate corruption by any public official from a city council member to Supreme Court justices or the President. That would be a good start.

all true, and with that said, leave it to the Fl voters to re-electing him without blinking. That is how stupid it gets

IT's a universal trait of Republican voters to blindly vote for any idiot with an (R) beside its name on the ballot. Every Republican in every state. A Republican in Maine is just as dumb as a Republican in Florida.

WOW. I had not heard about this. I suspect it wont be the last time, either. You know, I cant find one redeeming quality about Ronnie...he's Trump Lite, and awkward and weird and hateful...and, you know. Your choice of images at the start of this column was hilarious, BTW. ✌️

Expand full comment

He did a lot of that kind of thing in Florida too but the Republicans gave him great cover for every ugly act. But word is they're tired of him and Trump is ahead of DeSantis in Florida as well. They just can't seem to get enough awfulness, so once again, they double down on wrong.

Expand full comment

You would think that Florida has had enough of their 2 biggest fascists turds in the punchbowl. It's understandable that the heel clickers of the panhandle still support these phony autocratic assholes but with the large population of retirees and Hispanics, it doesn't make much sense.

Expand full comment

A lot of Florida’s Hispanics are wealthy whites fleeing their own kleptocratic governments. They are religious & often racist. The word socialism scares them to death.

They are selfish boomers (I'm a boomer, but like to think I am self aware and thoughtful of other's living conditions) and they started watching Faux Snooz 20 some years ago and are now thoroughly propagandized and trivialized.

Expand full comment

I missed being a boomer by a year so I'm like an aged boomer but I've found that many of us who are old really care about the world we're leaving behind and have lived our entire lives with that mindset. I am absolutely horrified at the selfishness and lack of any kind of foresight at all will bring. As I say more and more, I'm glad I'm old and I don't have children. But had I had them, I would have loved for them to have the intensity to be among the ones who will save it all, and I also wonder if it should be.

I hadn’t heard of it either, but I suspect we will hear more in the future. Jeff’s subscribers will be asking questions about this, and it will get attention. It should be on the national news shows.

I haven't paid for Fox Noise in my cable channel lineup for many years. In fact, I cut the cord on cable TV completely a few months ago. BUT, I asked my neighbors, who have the ultimate, all-channel, super-duper, including every sport known to mankind cable package, if I could come over November 30th and watch the debate between my governor, Gavin Newsom and Florida's governor Ron DeSatan. I'm looking forward to my gov ripping Ronnie a new asshole on national TV. My popcorn awaits!

It makes sense. He's a rotten candidate. He has no personality. And no chance. But even if his candidacy is a joke, she gets to show up in her Jackie O drag. So it's a win for her.

No, she would be far better dressed; Casey DeSantis is just a cheap imitator, attempting to re-create a look from the 1960s, but not doing it very well.

Why in the fuck has this Florida situation not all over the news?!!! There is some seriously shady shit going on--even shady for DeSantis--and every news outfit needs to be running this story’s on a continuous loop until someone forces that smug, little, high-heeled Nazi to explain.

Thank you for bringing this forward. I just posted on tribal yesterday about this mess and it was so hidden. People will call you a liar if you mention it and it shows how powerful the republicans are that they can redact redact redact. I was so annoyed when I read that article in all the reductions. I couldn't stand it. He is absolutely worthless and the language in the words that were used in his response were completely on 100%. Not his he doesn't even know what half of the words mean. I would love him to be questioned about it out on the trail. But of course, that will never happen. And you know what $2 t-shirts from Walmart. Are not that bad, get a wife, lady, how dare you? How dare you separate All of us with your stupidity, if I could get a T-shirt or a shirt for a child at Walmart for 2 dollars, i'd be there in a minute with 8 grandchildren. I'd be buying 2 shirts up the gang yag, you know such thing is happening. Which goes to show her complete and utter separation from how we all live. OK, there's my rent again. I have no use for either one of these people. And sadly, they're sitting in the governor's mansion. They need to be in a motel six.
