* “There are two things I don’t do. I don’t waste money, and I don’t lose elections.”–Sen. Rick Scott. Thanks again, Flori-duh, for not seeing through the mantra of “(con) jobs, (con) jobs, (con) jobs.”
* Unpardonable: And now there’s no President Trump to provide a possible get-out-of-jail-free card for Rep. Matt Gaetz, who is now even more unpopular among his congressional colleagues. Some charges–such as a sex-trafficking probe–transcend the usual partisan political support. When one of your few public defenders is Marjorie Taylor Greene, you’re being tossed under the GOPster bus.
