Florida GOP Leads a Lamb to Slaughter
Dennis Lamb? Seriously?
This Hollywood man -- who either has no political experience or simply forgot to mention it on his new website -- is going to challenge Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who in every new congressional session has gained leadership posts and influence within the legislative branch's dominant party. A Democrat in a district dominated by Democratic-voting Broward County, she's liberal in almost every respect, but she still outflanks prospective Republican candidates by taking conservative positions on Cuban policy and relations with Israel.
And yet Lamb's "mission" statement contains Tea Party-style paranoia about big government spending. He channels Glenn Beck when it comes to dreading "socialized medicine." And to hear him talk about terrorism, you'd swear Lamb thinks the election's in 2002. In Mississippi.
Which makes Lamb 0-for-6, and I'm probably forgetting another half-dozen prerequisites. So if you want to be taken seriously, Candidate Lamb, save your political debut for when you've done more than watch a whole lotta Fox News.
