The rhetoric is always pointed, and the emotions so quickly brought to the surface. Frequently, if not outright consistently, the accusation from Democrats is that the GOP often engages in voter suppression, vote tampering, or voter fraud.

Any one of these disasters is apt symbolism for the Broward County Board of Elections overseeing a recount.

The fun and sometimes frustration of following the Everglades Foundation's shenanigans is this: It's all such a freaking hypocrisy factory. After 25 years watching the Foundation with a notebook in my hand, I can smell one of their hypocrisies rising across the 'glades like a bloodhound sniffing out Pup-peroni in a garbage bin. It's a gift.
