In case you missed it, Rick Scott went into "automaton mode" when he got caught breaking Florida Campaign Laws recently. Somehow his non-answers just 'did not compute' ...

Voters and press alike are growing pretty sick of Rick Scott's utter refusal to answer questions. Ask him anything he doesn't feel like responding to, and he'll just give you the same canned talking point again and again. And again.
In court, Rick Scott may get away with pleading the fifth, but on the campaign trail, it just won't cut it. Scott still hasn't explained why he improperly used on-duty police officers as campaign props, and he doesn't seem eager to clarify any time soon.

Sometimes you wonder if Florida Governor Rick Scott believes he will self-distruct if he actually answers a question that is asked of him. Perhaps, as a kid, Scott was haunted by an early episode of the Star Trek series.Like Norman, like Scott.
Captain Kirk was trying to defeat a human-looking computer named "Norman" by confusing it.KIRK: "Everything Harry Mudd tells you is a lie. Remember that! Everything Mudd tells you is a lie!"Norman than blows all his circuits.
MUDD: "Now listen to this carefully, Norman: I AM LYING!"

Illogical! Illogical! Please explain! You are Human! Only Humans can explain their behavior! Please explain!"
Who knew that devious impossible logical conundrums, were their Achilles Heel?

It was just a "bite-sized brouhaha," Cooper said, but Scott's refusal to answer questions about the incident was what landed him on Tuesday night's "RidicuList." Instead of actually answering the questions, Scott repeatedly said that he is "proud" that 40 sheriffs have endorsed him and that he is "appreciative" of the support from law enforcement.
What these logic-seeking Reporters are forgetting is that ...
Republicans don't have to make sense -- they just have to 'Lie like a Rug' ... and hope like hell, that no one tries to beat them.
And perhaps, that they don't blow a fuse in the process -- in their non-answer, stuck-on-repeat, you-look-ridiculous, process.
