Charlie Crist: Back Waxes and Desperation
The race for the Republican Senate nomination in Florida gets better every day. Rubio, the tea party’s choice, has come from way back to a big lead and Florida Governor Crist sounds more desperate every day.
No wonder Charlie Crist wants to talk about back waxing. That may be his new profession after the Florida primaries, thanks to a massive outpouring of Republican support for his opponent, Marco Rubio. Public Policy Polling warned of an explosive new survey yesterday, but a 32-point deficit isn’t just explosive — it’s probably fatal to Crist’s career:
I think this bite from last night’s Greta show says it all. Greta asks why Crist believes Rubio is not a real conservative. Crist points to Marco Rubio’s use of a Republican party credit card for personal expenses, including one charge for a haircut. Rubio says he paid every personal expense charge personally but Crist decides to lower the bar. Let the fun begin.
Ed’s take on this is a little more serious and worth reading I think. As I have said on the air, he does take a more sober look at this stuff than I.
Why can’t we have a fun Senate race like this in Connecticut, instead we get this. Uggh.
How Low ! . First it sounds like a personal racial shot at hispanics stereotyping them as hairy people. Second, talk about big brother. What is Christ doing spying on credit card transactions of political opponents and having his detectives dig into the details of your $150 visit to a salon. Third….and most important point. ….why hasn't the republican party establishment at the top finished this guy Christ off the way the democrats got rid of Patterson and Dodd. It shows we still have this serious problem of high level fakers running the republican party, playing golf , not taking care of business, and out of touch with the rank and file voters.
I would answer that desperate attack with the "when did you stop beating your wife" counterattack, saying "at least I don't get Brazilian bikini waxes!" Laughter is the best weapon.
So, you're saying Christ is "waxing" desperate? Maybe he should just "back" off.
Not surprising, as more of the Dems and RINOS come to terms with the reality: that there WILL BE a coming voter backlash come November of this year.
Crist reminds me of a West Hartford man I used to see trough the women's salon window sitting in his pretty boy dandy suit getting a fingernail peticure with his jaguar convertable parked out front. This was years before the term "metrosexual" was coined. I think Crist is projecting his inner John Edwards onto Rubio. Crist is so interested in salon gossip because that is where he spends most of HIS time. This George Hamilton wannabee needs to quite politics and get himself a real job selling Tostitos.
Isn't Gov. Crist the guy who drove out the homeowner insurer's, leaving the Fla taxpayer's on the hook for the next big hurricane?
