The liberal answer to video touting Florida's right leadership by Mike Haridopolos



Florida Watch Action, the group that handed Gov. Rick Scott pink slips as he sold doughnuts in Tampa and brought you, has skewered the "Something Different is Happening in Florida" video by Senate President Mike Haridopolos in a parody.

The liberal group's offering evokes the music and drama of the original. That's where the similarities disappear.

"Pink Slip Puppet Mike Haridopolos thinks everything is coming up roses here in Florida. The middle class disagrees," the description states. 

Sidenote: PolitiFact Florida looked at how Haridopolos created his video in this story.
