What the hell is wrong with the state of Florida?

It's not Florida. It's LA. Lower Alabama.

Florida's always been where people go to make a quick buck, either off drugs, real estate speculation (and its siamese twin, political corruption), or plain old grifting of the massive elderly population. There are many doctors who fall into all three categories: they defraud medicare, use their profits to dig into beachfront condo development or shopping malls, and/or prescribe massive doses of Viagra and Oxy to Rush Limbaugh and the similarly wealthy and braindead. And all of them are Republicans.

In my hometown, we had the "Dirty 30" - a cabal of 30 doctors who built a private hospital to compete against the local nonprofit (the only other hospital for 45 miles); the hospital has no maternity ward and strenuously avoids Medicaid and the indigent. They sold out to Bill Frist's hospital chain and made millions. Among the 30 were at least one wifebeater (a neurosurgeon), more than a couple of well-known serial philanderers, and an oral surgeon who ended up doing time for feeling up his female patients while they were anesthetized. (He was a good Catholic with 9 kids.)

Coincidentally, all of the Dirty 30 were vocal Republicans.

But not all of Florida's racist assholes are doctors; some of them are just good, old-fashioned, un-Reconstructed southern rednecks.

Liberals invented Florida to make conservatives look bad.
