Around 6 p.m. last night, Gov. Rick Scott took off his jacket, perched onto an uncomfortable folding chair in an empty room and flipped open his Macbook to have a reasonable Facebook question-and-answer session with the fine folks in his state.

But then somewhere around the 19th personal attack wedged between questions about why he hates gun owners and wants to kill native fish with genetically engineered predators, Scott quietly logged off, shut his laptop and despaired over the fatal flaw in this plan: He lives in Florida.

The discussion started well enough, with a big fat Obamacare softball for Scott to crush.

This is just getting uncivil, Florida. Does anyone have an actual policy question Rick Scott can answer?

Thank you, Chris Black. Let the record show that the governor is firmly opposed to people waking up from year-long naps to discover an evil conglomerate attempting to engineer mass genocide with GMO corn.

Hint: See Jean Lawson Shaw's question.

In the end, Scott did answer 17 Facebook questions (out of nearly 600 left on the page). The world will have to wait for a final answer to the secrets of Scott's blink-free lifestyle, however.
