Fan Base

Okay, this was weird.

The Florida gubernatorial debate got off to a rocky start Wednesday night when Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) refused to come out because his Democratic opponent, former Gov. Charlie Crist, asked for and received a fan under his podium.

The debate moderators at CBS Miami seemed shocked, wondering aloud what to do for several minutes until Scott finally consented to join Crist on stage. Scott apparently told the hosts that the debate rules banned fans from the stage.

Wow.  Just wow.

For those of you who live outside of Florida and may wonder WTF?, imagine living here where this kind of behavior from Gov. Scott has been going on for the last four years.

8 barks and woofs on “Fan Base

  1. One would think that the “no electronic devices allowed at the debate” rule negotiated by the campaigns would have applied to laptops, tablets, and smart phones and not an electric fan.

  2. Do you suppose he misunderstood fan to mean a person who’d clap for his opponent and not an electric cooling device? No wonder he sulked.

  3. Sounds like life in Maine, with Governor Fat-Ass, Let’s-Tell-Obama-To-Go-To-Hell, Let’s-Tell-The-NAACP-To-Kiss-My-Butt, Let’s-Go-Hang-With-The-Sovereign-Citizens Paul Look-The-Teabaggers-LOVE-Me LePage, who has more chins than a Chinatown phone book.

    I just LOVE how Republicans make up the rules as they go… he probably said something along the lines of, “Technically, you know, like the rules actually like ban fans like from the stage.”
