Comic of the Century (Year) [Month] – OK, Fine, Just Day

I’m feeling vainglorious* about this because, well…

Fuck him. Really. Fuck Rick Scott.

*Look, maybe it doesn’t 100% apply, since this isn’t my comic. I am not being particularly vain. Self-righteous would have sufficed. Or just boastful, or gloating. The real word would be a mix of shame, vindication, zeal, patriotism, joy and underlying fear. I’ll leave it to the German language to concoct something for that because we English-speakers are as of yet unfamiliar with the full extent of those sentiments (or of any sentiments, really).

UF – USF: How Do You Feel About a $300,000,000 Cut?

Florida’s Asshole-in-Chief does it again. And all the while claiming he’s actually a good governor on education issues.

Making ends meet in the face of a $1.2 billion budget shortfall this year, on top of an even larger, $3.7 billion shortfall from last year was not an easy task, while still finding a way to pour more than a billion additional dollars* into our schools. But we must also look over the horizon, by spending the money it takes now to make Florida one of the most attractive labor markets in the nation. We accomplish this by investing in high-quality education, raising education standards and rewarding good teachers and the quality student outcomes they consistently produce. (originally from the Orlando Sentinel)

What a fucking riot.

*After Scott had cut 1.3 billion the previous year. That’s right. You got it. He cut the budget by 1.3 billion last year and is patting himself on the back for giving 1 billion back.
