in Statewide by

Of course it was George Riley who turned me on to a new Facebook page: Bald Guys for Bill McCollum.  From their page: Historically, the bald man has faced near-insurmountable social challenges at every turn.

Millionaire health care executive Rick Scott has bombarded the airwaves to launch his out-of-nowhere bid for governor of Florida, while both the long-running gubernatorial candidates seem to be slipping slightly in the polls.

Republican Rick Skeletor, I mean Rick Scott says he would support offshore drilling as governor
