Is your dog smarter than the Florida Legislature?
"The dog Louie does not take money from anyone in exchange for hurting the state of Florida on purpose," Troxler writes. "He does not run anything called "Committee for Good Dogs" in charge of taking legal bribery. Upon being discovered ripping a tissue to shreds or other wrong-doing, he does not deny it by claiming to be "Fighting For You."
Tampabay.com readers say they're ready to vote for Louie.
Louis from Fort Myers says: "An apt comparison. One that will certainly make it's way into the next round of elections. "I knew Louis, and you are no Louie."
Jeff from Tampa writes: "I'm not a dog person but I'll vote for Louie in the next election. Even if Louie drools a little he sounds like a big improvement.
"I'd bet Louie wouldn't be a 'double-dipper' either!" wrote Mary from Oldsmar.
