DeSantis-backed candidates flip Florida school board from liberal to conservative
The Sarasota, Florida school board has flipped from liberal to conservative as part of a Tuesday election night where Gov. Ron DeSantis-supported candidates won 25 elections.

Conservatives across the state of Florida celebrated on Tuesday night after control of the Sarasota County School Board shifted from liberal to conservative.

Bridget Ziegler, Robyn Marinelli, and Timothy Enos were all endorsed by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis and were all victorious Tuesday night in their elections for the Sarasota School board.

Various conservatives in the state touted the victories and suggested they represented a shift against Critical Race Theory and other "woke" policies that DeSantis and Republicans in Florida have railed against.

"Sarasota School Board had a 3-2 liberal majority," Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for DeSantis's reelection campaign, tweeted on Tuesday night.
"Today @RonDeSantisFL endorsed candidates won and flipped the school board so it's now 4-1 anti wokes indoctrination and pro parental rights."

"All three of our endorsed candidates in Sarasota County, Florida have WON their elections.," the 1776 Project Pac tweeted. "We just flipped the school board from a 3-2 liberal majority to 4-1 conservative."

Former Associated Press editor Ted Bridis tweeted Tuesday night that 25 conservative school board candidates supported by DeSantis won elections.

DeSantis also had a big night in Miami Dade County where conservative school board candidates also took control.

"The 1776 Project PAC was successful across the state of Florida," Ryan Girdusky, founder of the 1776 Project PAC, told Fox News Digital. "This shows what happens when conservatives like the 1776 Project PAC, Moms for Liberty, and Gov. DeSantis team up behind great candidates. Florida today, the country."

Typically school board elections involve candidates that we know little about. In Florida they have taken the guess work out of it.

A victory for parents.

Former Navy Pilot Rips 'Pathetic' Ron DeSantis Over 'Top Gun' Stunt

Ed Mazza
Wed, August 24, 2022 at 5:07 AM

A former U.S. Navy pilot is calling out   Ron DeSantis   for his new “Top Gun”-themed campaign ad in which the Republican Florida governor calls himself “Top Gov.”

“It’s not just cringey,” said Ken Harbaugh. “It’s literally Navy pilot cosplay.”

In the   widely mocked ad , DeSantis donned aviator shades and a bomber jacket and plopped into what appeared to be the pilot’s seat of a fighter jet as he talked about taking on the “corporate media.”

Harbaugh, a former Navy pilot and host of the “Burn the Boats” podcast, showed off his own jacket in a video posted by progressive PAC MeidasTouch.

“Now, unlike Ron DeSantis, I didn’t pick this jacket up at Party City,” Harbaugh said. “These are actual pilot wings.”

Harbaugh noted that while DeSantis did serve in the Navy, it was as an attorney.

“Nothing wrong with that,” Harbaugh said. “Until you start strutting around the flight line wearing aviator shades and pretending to be a badass.”

He added:

“This tough guy act is pathetic, especially from someone like Ron DeSantis. This campaign ad from Ron DeSantis is just one more example of a Republican politician appropriating the honor of others because he has none.”

Harbaugh concluded by giving DeSantis a new callsign: Wedge or “the simplest tool known to man.”

Did Death Santis ever serve anywhere? 
He graduated from  Yale University  and  Harvard Law School . DeSantis joined the  United States Navy  in 2004, where he was promoted to  lieutenant  before serving as an advisor to  SEAL Team One  and being  deployed to Iraq in 2007 . When he returned to the U.S. a year later, the  U.S. Department of Justice  appointed DeSantis to serve as a  Special Assistant U.S. attorney  at the  U.S. Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Florida , a position he held until his honorable discharge in 2010.

Early life and education

Military service

Of course I don't know if this commercial will be effective or not but I see several major differences between this and the  Dukakis one: 

  • Dukakis was visiting the tank factory but everyone knew that he didn't support the ongoing build-up in conventional weapons, like tanks
  • DeSantis is using air force as a metaphor for pushing back on the media (always popular with Rep base)
  • Dukakis was photographed sticking his head up out of the tank turret with squinting eyes and a goofy grin
  • DeSantis has a physical presence in the video not unlike a squadron commander

“This tough guy act is pathetic, especially from someone like Ron DeSantis. This campaign ad from Ron DeSantis is just one more example of a Republican politician appropriating the honor of others because he has none.”

So are you a “panty waist” to people who served longer than you?

Veteran opinions that I question: Veterans who think their service is somehow more righteous than others.     The only Veterans who qualify to think that way IMO are real combat Veterans.    Interestingly I’ve never met one of those who think that way.    Not a real one anyways.

Another one of which we lost Tuesday after a five year battle with Agent Orange related cancers.    A good friend, a patriot and Vietnam Combat Veteran.    I already miss him greatly.

For your educational purposes, my comment reflected a loon leftist making a post ABOUT a conservative.

Asking OF a conservative does NOT equate to asking ABOUT a conservative. 

Once again, an excuse to avoid admitting you have no coherent answer.

For the third and final time, your strawman doesn't warrant an answer. I don't play that gave. 

Apparently you do because you keep responding to it.

By your standard, you hold my opinion in high regard. 

Doing the best you can to not admit you don't know the meaning of strawman.

Again, take your supercilious bullshit to someone who respects your opinion bugsy. 

Now, I'm sure you won't recognize it as mocking as you more than likely agree with the post.

Nope, I don't see it as mocking because it isn't mocking, nor is there anything in that comment stating that he shouldn't be wearing a bomber jacket. 

FAIL.

I never said that the post was asking a question to a conservative. Maybe one of these days you will see that.

"For the third and final time, your strawman doesn't warrant an answer. I don't play that gave"

And for the third time, you keep responding.

Delusional. I find your opinion laughable and boring. \

"Again, take your supercilious bullshit to someone who respects your opinion bugsy"
