Running jokes from Florida

Is it a desire to be famous, a consequence of the celebrity culture so pervasive in the nation at large but especially here in the sun 'n' fun State? Or maybe it's a consequence of folks from New York migrating South. Could it just be something in the water? Too much sun? I really don't know, but the parade of blow-hards going to D.C. from my home State is getting tiresome.

There was the "fire-breathing liberal," Robert Wexler (born in New York, by the way) who was something of a smear machine. Then there was Alan Grayson (also born in New York), with "Taliban" ads and other high-minded rhetoric. Now we have Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, current Chair of the DNC and New York native, who apparently has no problem accusing anyone of anything at anytime, regardless of the facts.

It's enough to make me want to move to New York...

Cheers, all.

  1. Or you could live in my state (RI) where the governor wants to call the State House Christmas tree a holiday tree. Lots of controversy here right now!

  2. Oh, I'm sure every State has its share of goofs, but I think Florida has a few more...though many seem to be transplants from New York! ;)

  3. Lots of crazies in the great Pacific Northwest also. Seems no place is safe unless it's in flyover country.

  4. Just wait til the New Yorkers find out about it. They'll start migrating there, soon enough.
