What's the matter with Florida?

When my baby smiles at me, I go to Rio!

...or Buenos Aires:

VENICE -- Congressional underdog Nancy Detert has spent months raising just $125,000 in a campaign where the financial front-runner has collected more than $1.6 million.

It took her campaign manager just a week to blow $27,000 of it on a trip to Buenos Aires.

Details of Randy Maddox's trip are sketchy -- and he and his parents promise to return the $94,000 Rep. Detert says he stole -- but rumors in recent days about his jaunt to South America with Detert's entire war chest were confirmed when the Venice Republican held a press conference Monday.

Maybe Ms. Detert should look into Katherine Harris' $32K "beautifying regimen" to shake up her campaign.
