Too Much Faith in Numbers

Kendrick Meek is the Florida Democratic party’s candidate for US Senate. I didn’t vote for him, but now it’s time to close ranks and take the fight to both Charlie “Opportunist” Crist and the GOP’s Marco Rubio. As much as I like to see confidence, though, perhaps Meek’s campaign manager, Abe Dyk, is bit fixated with electoral math.

CRIST CANNOT WIN

The math does not add up for Florida’s elected Republican Governor.

With universal name recognition, Charlie Crist abandoned his Republican primary fight against Marco Rubio. Only 39% of Democrats supported Crist at a time when Kendrick was completely unknown beyond his district, a number that will be a high-water mark for him running against a Real Democrat.


Floridian Dems Behaving Badly

The infamous Democratic circular firing squad is alive and well. MoJo asks, Can the race for the Democratic Senate nomination in Florida get any dirtier? According to Orlando Sentinel, neither candidate has comported himself well.

In the last three months, they’ve engaged in the equivalent of daily knife fights, trying to shred each other with a series of allegations that have ranged from silly to spot-on. Civility is the biggest casualty, as the candidates’ genuine disdain for one another has become apparent.


A Pox on Both Hacks

Losers Regardless of the OutcomePutative Democratic party nominees for the U.S. Senate from Florida, Kendrick Meek and Jeff Greene are piling up a record of a whole lot of nonsense, even though Greene seems to be more adept at dishing out dirt.


This SemDem Voted

Seminole County Florida Democratic Party logoI just finished filling out my absentee ballot for the Seminole County, Florida Democratic primary election. Aside from a queasiness due to a bit of alienation – honestly, I’ve “lived” in Sanford, Florida for days as opposed to years in Maryland – and frustration borne of a dearth of online information – who knows about a circuit judge’s platform? – I’m sure I just wasted 30 minutes I could have spent talking to the dog.

That’s a bit harsh, I’ll admit. Still, I wonder how many other “Seminolean” – as opposed to the real Seminoles – Democrats, or SemDem’s, will bother to vote on August 24.
