Morning, comrades. The Big Dog is here in Worcester today to rally with Martha Coskley, but I expect us unwashed heathens won't be getting in without a ticket.

Mornin' all.. Still sick and swillin' tea, and mighty pissed off that my computer decided to fuck itself up over a windows update last night.

I suppose I'm not getting why having a fan on stage is a big deal. Those lights are hot.

Sadly, no, Crist (who I support tepidly at best) and The Criminal, Rick Scott are in a statistical dead heat. Why this is beyond me. Scott lies about his record, the state papers of record call hm on it, yet he keeps doing it. Crist and his surrogates have been hammering Scott's ass with Columbia/HCA scandal, but not as effectively as the could be. The tag line on the damn ads should be bad for private industry, even worse for Florida. Not to mention Scott is a creepy as fuck android.

This is too funny.
Scott’s Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist, had set up a small fan underneath his podium, apparently trying to keep himself from sweating under the Broward College stage’s lights. Scott saw the fan, a prop that often accompanies Crist at public appearances, as a violation of the debate’s rules and said he wouldn’t participate.
FanGate and Other Rules in the Florida Governor Debate You Didn’t Know About
Jesse Berney | 22 mins ago | Miss This?


Courtesy of CNN.com, we have this brief summary of the shenanigans at the Florida Gubernatorial debate:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott refused to go onstage for the first seven minutes of a debate Thursday night, because his opponent had a fan.

No, not a rowdy supporter in the audience. An actual electric fan.

Scott’s Democratic challenger, former Gov. Charlie Crist, had set up a small fan underneath his podium, apparently trying to keep himself from sweating under the Broward College stage’s lights. Scott saw the fan, a prop that often accompanies Crist at public appearances, as a violation of the debate’s rules and said he wouldn’t participate.

Here is a list of other rules demanded by Gov. Rick Scott before he would agree to participate in a debate.

1. Answers shall be limited to two minutes; responses to one minute. Time remaining will be indicated by a yellow light and a high-pitched whine audible only to dogs and Gov. Scott.

2. Gov. Crist shall have no electronic devices at his lectern, including microphones.

3. No purple nurples, wet willies, swirlies, or Indian burns.

4. No discussing anything Rick Scott has actually done as governor.
There is a lot more….

Charlie Crist's Fan: A Love Story

In 2006, when Crist was state attorney general, competing in a tough Republican gubernatorial primary, the fan accompanied him onstage. It was August in Poinciana, a swampy Central Florida town south of Orlando, and the air was thick with moisture. His opponent, Tom Gallagher, looked at Crist’s fan and said to the moderator, “That’s not fair. Get another fan in here or I’m walking out.” The debate was delayed several minutes until a second fan could be found.

Gallagher was rattled. Maybe it was the fan. Crist won the election.

Many times on SMS the banter would go the Silence of Lambs when Shep would go off the farm and say something that was counter to the FNC line de jour. Jim would bust out the quote in his Buffalo Bill voice.

Reports are coming in that Rick Scott denies the fan issue. I have no citations though. But, since The Criminal, Rick Scott is a prevaricating sack of manatee shite, I lend credence to this.

As an aside, on our trip to NY this Summer, I had a WaWa hero (sub, hoagie -- whatever) and it was the most amazing italian sub I have had in a long long time. I still crave it.

Thom has mentioned that Rick Scott did this 4 years ago and I guess he's hoping lightning will strike in his favor a second time since he used it to distract from the issue (or his villany) then. I got my tinfoil back on with Thom hinting that the drop in the Stock Market might be an attempt by the billionaires to let the market slide long enough to convince people the economy is bad and blame it on Obama and vote for the GOP (especially with so many races a dead heat).

Never heard of the place.

You mean there's something so bad going on that they have to pretty much swear the lowest sandwich assembler to secrecy?

Don't see how that can be enforced. Well, given the corporate owned SCROTUS, I guess I can see.

That's really interesting.
Lexalt is the fairly recently discovered illegitimate son of former Republican Sen. Pete Domenici, who is trying to leverage his family ties into a political career.

It impossible to see how any candidate can win if their own family is planning on voting for his/her opponent. Lexalt is the grandson of former Republican Sen. Paul Lexalt. The younger Lexalt said that evaluating himself as an outstanding private attorney, but The Las Vegas Sun reported on his performance review, “But his supervisors said his work was “sloppy,” called him a “train wreck” and suggested a salary freeze and “possible termination,” according to notes from Laxalt’s performance review meeting for 2011-12 with the firm Lewis Roca.”

MAny of those rEALLY close races are people3 NOT running on the Obama bandwagon. So that really doesn't make sense.

As low as Obama's approval ratings are, they aren't noticing (and neither is the Media) that the GOP's approval ratings are actually LOWER than Obama's. May not be able to get past the knuckle-breathers at Fox News, but you would some people would notice that.

Fuck you, NFL Thursday night games. Usual commute a shade over an hour. At 3 the estimate was 45 minutes, it's now an hour and a half, and I'm still here for another 30 minutes.

I hope that Rick Scott gets pilloried over the fan stunt and that a lot of attention is focused on his record.

They went live last Friday, I think right now they're running static "not moving" displays (like the Rangers colors) but soon they will be color changing, if they aren't already.
