  •  Because Florida voters (2+ / 0-)

    aren't always the brightest crayons in the box.

    And before anyone gets pissed off, I was born in Florida, and been here all 31 years of my life, so I say that with a great deal of perspective on local politics.

    And in two weeks I'm getting the FUCK out of this place for good, moving the hell across the country to Oregon. I wish to spend the latter half of my life in a place with seasons, mountains, NATIVE trees, and saner politics.

    But yeah, Florida is sort of full of morons. Not everyone, mind you, and this state did go blue for Obama in 2008, so it's not a total lost cause. But yeah, 2010 sort of showed that a) we have a lot of morons voting, and b) the Democratic Party of Florida is a freaking joke, so there's not a great deal of hope for things getting better. I expect Florida to go blue for Obama again this year, but only because of all the young people and Latinos in Central Florida, the same group that turned Florida barely blue in 2008.

    Oddly enough, I have yet to find anyone who admits to voting for Governor Voldemort.
