“Let’s be grateful that Ron DeSantis devotes so much of his time raging over drag queens and bragging how he punished Disney for disagreeing with him. An obsessive pursuit of ‘woke’ has kept the Florida governor and apparent presidential candidate from mucking around serious matters. … his administration has just revoked the Hyatt Regency Miami’s alcohol license because it hosted ‘A Drag Queen Christmas.’ … The big risk for DeSantis is making his opponent Donald Trump seem deep by comparison. … As bystanders in the political farce consuming much of the Republican race for president, we can give thanks that DeSantis has decided to battle against the sinister forces of wokeness and leave the important issues pretty much alone. But too bad about Miami. It used to be fun.” (03/16/23)
