Rick Scott Distributes List of Accomplishments
At a news conference last week at the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, Gov. Rick Scott's aides left a gift on the chairs of everyone in the audience: a list of Scott's accomplishments for the year. Just in case anyone had forgotten. Take a look -- these items speak for themselves.
My favorites: "Led the fight to require drug testing for people applying for welfare" -- as if it were a noble crusade against the forces of evil. Then there is his "fight to end the practice of granting teachers tenure," because teachers, of course, are the enemy.
