“a mix of applause and a chorus of boos”? rofl

The Reid Report: So Rick Scott throws out the first pitch for the Tampa Bay Rays’ season opener, and the St. Pete Times says he gets a “mix of applause and a chorus of boos” from the crowd. Well that depends on what the meaning of “mix” is. Check out the video below and see if you can hear a single cheer:

Congrats to Peter Schorsch and the other organizers of the “Boo Rick Scott day” – but I suspect theirs were only a portion of the crowd, which after all, was full of Floridians. And way to keep giving the governor the benefit of the doubt, St. Pete Times!
