First, understand how I’m not angry, but laughing at the ham-handedness of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) media team.
You remember these fellas, the ones who attacked veteran Tallahassee and South Florida lobbyist Ron Book in an email blast?
And then had to withdraw said attack with their collective tails between their legs?
They used the FBI investigation angle to go after Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum, which is understandable. What’s not is dragging in Book in the same email.
Why bring up Gillum’s vote “to extend a $90,000 lobbying contract” with Book?
Why mention that Book is a “major Gillum campaign donor”?
Worse, and I chuckle some more here at the inanity, why try to smear Book by calling him “a well-known ‘influence peddler,’ ” then bring up long-settled accusations from the – I kid you not – 1990s?
Can’t say I didn’t tell them.

Hey, maybe somebody finally listened to me and pulled the Book-themed attack.
If so, that was the smartest thing the RGA’s “Rapid Response” geniuses did this week.
