Best comically botched political calculation: ADAM “PROUD NRA SELLOUT” PUTNAM

The Secretary of Agriculture knew he’d have to maneuver as far to the right as possible in his GOP primary bid for governor against Ron DeSantis. Hence, he pledged his undying love for one Marion Hammer. Alas (for him), DeSantis got the Trump bump, although by then all six moderate Republicans that still exist in the wild (if that many) were probably already turned off by his giant leap to the right anyway. By primary day, his “base” consisted of people who knew him as a kid or recently worked with him (LOL, Pam Bondi) or whatever. Psssst… Adam… wanna join #TheResistance? It’s hella fun up here. —KB
