Rick Scott Administration Ghostwrites Positive Letters to the Editor

Florida's Rick Scott is the most unpopular governor in the nation, and while his administration is sticking to a Bush-like refrain that poll numbers don't matter, it sure seems that deep down he realizes that his basement-level approval ratings spell trouble. So in an effort to turn public perception around, his administration is now ghostwriting letters to editors to put a positive spin on his first six months in office.

RickScottForFlorida.com now includes a page asking his supporters to send positive letters to Florida's newspapers. Perhaps sensing that anyone who can string more than two sentences together might not have all that much positive to say about Scott, the site offers prewritten letters. The only thing his supporters, whoever they are, have to do is sign their name and send off the letter.

Here's the letter:
Dear Editor,

When Rick Scott ran for Governor he promised to create jobs and turn our economy around. I voted for Rick because he's always been a businessman, not a politician. While politicians usually disappoint us and rarely keep their promises, Rick is refreshing because he's keeping his word. His policies are helping to attract businesses to our state and get people back to work. Some of the special interests are attacking the Governor for making tough decisions, showing leadership, and doing what he told us he would do. Rick Scott deserves our unwavering and enthusiastic support. How can we expect to elect leaders who will keep their word and do what's right for our state if we don't stand up for those with the courage to set priorities, make difficult choices, and actually deliver on their promises made?
You can even choose which newspaper to send them to.

We expect absolutely zero of these letters to actually get printed in any newspaper.
