I’ve Got DeSantis Derangement Syndrome

I can’t stop thinking or writing about him

I seem to have developed a severe case of DDS — DeSantis Derangement Syndrome. My symptoms include being unable to stop thinking and writing about him as well as complete and total amazement at his incompetence at running for president.

I used to be afraid of him because he is smarter than Trump but I’ve discovered that that doesn’t mean that he’s smart.

It doesn’t take much to be smarter them Trump. Do you think that the reason Trump has never had a dog is because dogs are smarter than he is?

Seriously though, how can you take anyone seriously who says:

“At the end of the day, I’ve shown in Florida an ability to win huge swaths of voters that Republicans typically can’t win — while also delivering the boldest agenda anywhere in the country.”

Okay, okay, Ronnie said that during an interview on Fox News the day that he announced that he was running. I think there’s something about Fox News that numbs peoples’ brains and makes them prone to saying the stupidest things imaginable.

Shit like:

“I will be able to destroy leftism in this country and leave woke ideology in the dustbin of history.”

Wasn’t Marxism supposed to leave capitalism in the dustbin of history? And yet, here we are.

Nevertheless, how could anyone in their right mind think that Florida is representative of the entire country? It’s a deep red state filled with tourists, retirees and paranoid Cuban ex-pats.

Hoo boy. I’m going to catch hell in the comments for saying that.

Ronnie, it doesn’t matter how many Floridians voted for you. What matters is how many voters nationwide vote for you.

And about that “boldest agenda anywhere in the country” bit. That, right there, is an exaggeration bordering on an outright lie.

How many times have I pointed out that red states love to imitate each other? Each state trying to pass laws that are harsher than everyone else’s?
