Scott: Throws right, thinks right

by John Kennedy | April 1st, 2011

Tampa Bay teachers’ groups and other Democratic allies plan to rally against Republican Gov. Rick Scott when he throws out the first pitch at tonight’s season-opening, Rays-Baltimore Orioles game.

But there’s apparently little doubt about what kind of pitch the crafty righthander — and political right-leaner — plans to throw tonight.

“It’ll be either down the middle, or probably more like high — and to the right,”  Brian Burgess, the governor’s communications director, said Friday.

Along with the Scott boo birds in the sell-out crowd at St. Petersburg’s Tropicana Field, area Republicans are trying to rally supporters to balance out the numbers at tonight’s game.

    The only way to find people who like this guy is to bus them in from another part of the country.

  2. Educator Says:

    He will be booed loudly.

  3. Kevin Says:

    His true supporters can’t be heard from their corporate owned luxury sky boxes. However they might be able to get some too dumb to know any better supporters from the tractor pull going on down the road a piece.

    Please just remember what his good old Mom said.”He gave me a job at the donut shop. He’s a good boy!!!”

  5. Jupiter Guy Says:

    I wonder if he made his mom pee in a cup before he gave her the job?

    Derp derp derp burgess you a$$clown. It is amazing what incredible POS people become when they get the smallest amount of power.

  11. Can't elect union leadership Says:

    I can vote for politicians. I can’t vote and elect union leadership. Therefore, Scott has my support.


    They want, what they want and to HELL with everyone else during this horrid economic downturn.

    You forgot one thing…Rick Scott did not win with a majority of Florida voters. He won with 48% of the vote to 46% for Sink….Hardly a mandate especially when Scott ignores the fair district ammendments that won with 63% of the vote in November…That is what is called a “majority”…

  13. Max Says:

    Well said Mike Evons, well said…..

    Rick Scott has a mob associate in his leadership coalition. The man to get Florida back on track is Joe Ardolina of American Truck Sales. He’s a former vice president in the now defunct H&W Refuse Service who’s president was Anthony Carione, fingered by law enforcement along with his brother Frank Carione, as then active figures in the underworld. Another brother, Joseph Carione, plead guilty to defrauding the government as a co-defendant in a case that involved Colombo crime boss Andrew Russo.
