Florida Politics has done an early and masterful job of exposing freshman Florida Sen. Mel Martinez as the weasel he is. Almost all Florida’s major newspapers are running editorials about Mel’s tried and true pattern of slinging the slime and then hiding behind aides or other scapegoats, and FlaPol has the complete round-up. Considering that Mel did the impossible during the last election cycle – actually make me support Bill McCollum* – I am not at all surprised. But as the blog points out, Florida’s stuck with this jack-ass for six long years.
* Actually, I was only pulling for Bill in the Republican primary, in which I cannot vote.
