“The Rick Scott Is Perfect!”

So the Republican Party’s outreach efforts to young unmarried women are getting more substantive every day. You may recall the recent “Barack the Dog” ad depicting POTUS as one of those slippery guys you’d meet via online dating. Now there’s a comparison of Florida gubernatorial candidates to wedding dresses, courtesy of the College Republicans, who really, really should know better:

Don’t know about you, but I nearly fell out of my chair when the ad began with a young soon-to-be-bride beaming and exclaiming “The Rick Scott is perfect!” Even if one does decide to “say yes” to the current Governor of Florida, has anyone ever deemed this man “perfect?” Perfectly scary, maybe.
