Monday Mailbag: Shakespeare Edition

by | May 8, 2017

‘Tis time once more to empty the mailbags of fodder and worthless chaff, to let fly with satirical arrows and pray they find their mark. What follows, then, are works of fiction and foul vapors loosed from the lips of men (and women) with dark hearts.

“Friends, Floridians, statesmen, lend me your ears; I come to mock The Process, not to praise it.” –The Capitolist

“All of Florida is a stage, and all the politicians, merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.” –Jeff Atwater 

“On second thought, I don’t want to play your part after all.” –Lenny Curry

“I’ll happily play his part.”  –Pat Neal

wouldn’t turn it down.” -Joe Gruters

For never was a story of more woe than this tale of John Morgan and Ben Pollara.” –Amendment 2 Supporters

“Ben Pollara, look your last, take your last embrace! And, lips, oh you the doors of lies, seal with a kiss of engrossing death!” –John Morgan

“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt. Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall. While the miserable have no other medicine but dope.”  Ben Pollara

“Please tell Jack Latvala that I live by one creed: This above all: to thine own self be true.” Richard Corcoran

Though this be madness, yet there is method in it.” –Jack Latvala

What’s in a name? That which we call a budget by any other name would still be filled with member projects.” –Carlos Trujillo

“To veto or not to veto, that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of Richard Corcoran or to take arms against a sea of troubled legislators. And by opposing, end them?  To kill the budget, to let the lobby corps sleep – no more – and by sleep to say we end the heartache of their appropriation failures. To sleep, perchance to dream of EFI funding – ah, there’s the rub, for in that sleep of budget death what dreams my come. When we have shuffled off this regular session, must give the process a pause. That makes the calamity of session so long.”  Rick Scott

“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the (trial) lawyers.” –AIF, Florida Chamber, and NFIB

When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.” –Corrine Brown

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” –Judge Timothy Corrigan
