Funny Smith Quip



Last week, Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Thomas wrote a biting column that eviscerated Rod Smith and urged Democrats to go with Jim Davis.

"I would no more vote for Smith than I would take a bubble bath in red tide," Thomas wrote in a column that criticized Smith as the worst thing to happen to the environment "since the invention of air conditioning and mosquito control."

When asked about that column, Jim Davis said on Monday on Bay News 9 Political Connections show to be aired Sunday: "Obviously, you can chalk him off as a decided voter and that's great."

Rod Smith drew a chuckle from even Davis, as he started to defend his environmental record with: "Well, I actually have the guy down as a maybe."
