Florida getting close to California kookiness

Published:

As a native Floridian I admit I used to take glee in observing the antics of the kooks of California. No more. It isn’t that they are any less nuts, with their toppling city and state finances, Hollywood madness and outrageous taxation policies, but this corner of the continent has overtaken them with the election of Alan Grayson. Grayson is the Democratic representative of Florida’s 9th Congressional District — east Orlando to Yeehaw Junction. He sent out promotional literature portraying the “t” in tea party with a flaming cross. Who cannot take offense at that?

If the electorate of his district supports him again, Florida will retire the crown for rank stupidity. Floridian face-eating, chad-hanging, Koran burning and such will all be forgotten in the ultimate lunacy.
