Senator Batboy

Senator Batboy sends his greetings from a yacht somewhere in Italy.

We mention this only because as the head of the RNSC his line of attack has been that President Handsome Joe Biden has been, you know, vacationing in [checks notes] Delaware.


Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) is spending part of his congressional recess on a luxury yacht in Italy with his family after criticizing President Biden for vacationing in Delaware, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: Scott is the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, whose job is to win back a GOP majority in the upper chamber. Republicans’ prospects for winning back the Senate have been worsening over the course of the summer, according to polling and analysis.

  • Scott is already under fire for his management of the committee.
  • Vacationing in Europe while Republicans face cash problems and rough headlines about their midterm chances could further hurt his standing with his GOP colleagues.

The big picture: Scott has been taking heat from Republican detractors who have criticized his job of recruiting strong candidates and managing the committee’s spending this cycle.

  • Republican candidates are underperforming across the Senate landscape. Trump-endorsed nominees are trailing in must-win states like Pennsylvania and Arizona. A top Republican super PAC was forced to spend $28 million backing author J.D. Vance’s campaign in GOP-friendly Ohio.

What they’re saying: NRSC spokesman Chris Hartline did not respond to requests for comment on Monday night after Axios spoke with three sources familiar with aspects of Scott’s itinerary.

Batboy is really bad at his job; this is Ted-Cruz-in-Cancun level bad at his job.

    Sure- the blatant hypocrisy is at a deafening level her. But , the larger issue here is- the people that vote for Rick Scott and Ted Cruz- dngaf about this kind of hypocrisy- in fact- they all love it and think tweets like that are a great way to make Democratic voters cry. “own the libs” who cares if it makes you look bad- it only makes you look bad to Democratic voters- who would never vote for these assholes anyway. Seriously- fuck these asshole. I have had it with the whole lot of them. sigh.

    Chances are this cheap mofo is ripping off the voters of floriduh in some way possible if he is actually vacationing in Europe. But as long as he’s ‘owning the libs’…

    He was really great as a healthcare executive too. Check out this bit of his bio in Wiki:

    Scott is a graduate of the University of Missouri–Kansas City and the Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University. In 1987, after serving in the United States Navy and becoming a law firm partner, he co-founded Columbia Hospital Corporation. Columbia later merged with another corporation to form Columbia/HCA, which eventually became the nation’s largest private for-profit health care company. Scott was pressured to resign as chief executive of Columbia/HCA in 1997. During his tenure as chief executive, the company defrauded Medicare, Medicaid and other federal programs. The Department of Justice ultimately fined the company $1.7 billion in what was at the time the largest health care fraud settlement in U.S. history. Following his departure from Columbia/HCA, Scott became a venture capitalist and pursued other business interests. In 2009, he founded Conservatives for Patients’ Rights.

    But wait, there’s more!

    During Scott’s 2000 deposition [regarding his role in the frauds] he pleaded the Fifth Amendment 75 times.

    And yet, the good people of Flor-a-duh elected him their Governor and then one of their Senators.

    An extra bonus for me is that he was a lawyer. (I wonder if he’s still a member of the bar.)
