Now it's this kind of thing that causes people to mistake Andy Borowitz and the Onion for straight reporting. Doesn't this sound like something made up?

Sadly, this kind of thing will be happening more and more with Stand Your Ground and "perceived" imminent threat...

I feel sorry for the good citizens of Florida. They have a tea party tool for a governor who proudly upholds a variety of insane laws, and more goofballs who attain notoriety --and not in a good way-- because their tea party tool of a governor upholds a variety of insane laws.

This is the man who said:

" I stand for limited government, fiscal responsibility, personal freedom, personal responsibility, so the Republican Party will support me." ~Rick Scott

So the Republican Party will support me. Isn't that the sincerest form of motivation for your political platform...

You've done it, Carrie. You've finally gotten me speechless I just don't know where to begin.
Just asking you to keep us updated on this motion (and court case, I hope)

I guess most figure Bush did so many things wrong, what's one more thing to blame on him?

That is the best this guy and his lawyers could say. Well execute them just like old Bushy Bush did the the command and Iraq's leadership

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Just brings to mind that we are still living under this despicable Doctrine. I can't understand why we don't have a new Obama Doctrine. I've been waiting nearly 5 years for one.....
