No-party governor candidate Michael E. Arth borrows from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Major-General’s Song and the D.A. Pennebaker-shot 1965 proto-video of Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues to promote himself as “the very model of a pragmatic humanitarian.”

There’s no Allen Ginsberg background cameo in the Arth video.

Rick Scott didn’t attend an Aug. 11 debate with Republican primary rival Bill McCollum, but he ended up making a joint appearance of sorts with another gubernatorial candidate, no-partyite Michael E. Arth. Arth attended a Scott event and posed for a picture with the GOP candidate.

“Despite campaigning since June 2009, Arth was able to mingle unnoticed at the Scott event,” says an Arth press release that describes the encounter.
