Bill Nelson gets BuzzFeed treatment for 'God-awful' website



Bill Nelson has had a distinguished career in public service. He served in the Florida House, then the U.S. House, then as state insurance commissioner and, since 2001, in the U.S. Senate. He's a Democrat that survived Florida's Republican wave, and is Florida's only elected statewide Democrat.



But when it comes to popularity contests, Nelson often (okay, most often) loses. The Tallahassee press corps once referred to him as the "least interesting man in the world" -- riffing off the Dos Equis guy. Now comes our cousins (not really our cousins) BuzzFeed, who yesterday bestowed upon him an even worse honor --- "The Most God-Awful Website in the Senate."

In listicle style, BuzzFeed rattles off the seven worst websites of the Senate, making fun of bad formatting, funny photos and 1990s-themed design.

Nelson came in at No. 1, with BuzzFeed mocking photos of Nelson, and the stories about his day.

HEY BUZZFEED, Nelson has been to SPACE.

P.S. You're right, his website is pretty bad.
