Florida wrap-up

From Key West to Central Florida . . .

I know, I know . . . "Key West."  But it's on the list for what, I think, Christie Blatchford calls WASP tourism -- southernmost point in the continental United States, etc.  And the food was pretty good, too.

I dined on a restaurant patio fronting the main street of Old Key West when I saw it.  A t-shirt worn by a 50-something, owlish looking gentleman that read:  "Buck Fush."  Funny guy.What gets me is that if a conservative were to wear something so sophomoric, he would be called on it.  Yet this is what passes for "legitimate political commentary" (TM) among the left.  Ugh.  Driving north toward Central Florida, I saw a roadside sign in Florida ranch country that read:  "God bless George and Jeb Bush."  There is more than one Florida.  There's the Florida of those who have been the beneficiaries of generations of hard work directed toward building the infrastructure of education, roads and causeways, and the freedom to enjoy these things.  And then there's the Florida that pays for it with their hard-earned tax dollars.  You guess among which crowd the t-shirt and the sign belong.

For more "Florida wrap-up," go to Burkean Canuck . . .

I'll bet the guy with the clever t-shirt was one of the boobs who couldn't operate a voting machine.
