Me, first! Me, first! cries Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum.

As soon as the media reported that President Barack Obama was about to ask BP to establish an escrow account for Deepwater Horizon claims, here comes McCollum with a press release announcing he had thought of it a week before the president.

Credit Card Abuse Shouldn't Be Just a Republican Story

Thirty-one RPOF American Express credit cards issued, but not a single one to the governor?

On the other hand, why would the governor need a credit card when his minions are flashing theirs to the tune of more than $7 million? And these are in-the-shadows people, backgrounders that most Floridians have never heard of.

Readers, RPOF credit cards are going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Trust me. Bookmark this Web site.

Sen. Bennett and His Not-Quite-Bikini-Clad Babes Travel the World

Let's hope Florida Sen. Mike Bennett likes to travel, because in the last 72 hours the Bradenton Republican has zipped around the world like a yo-yo. Well, his video image, anyway.

Rasmussen Reports Poll Shows Crist Making a Gain on Rubio

If Gov. Charlie Crist leaves the GOP and jumps into the U.S. Senate race as an Independent, he'll still be behind his primary opponent Marco Rubio.

The poll of Florida voters finds that 37 percent would vote for GOP frontrunner Marco Rubio, 30 percent for Crist and 22 percent for Democrat Kendrick Meek. Thats a lot closer than a month ago, when Rubio had a 17-point lead and Crist was in third place.
