Oh my, who could have predicted this “BREAKING NEWS” that just broke a little while ago:
Charlie Crist, whose prerogative it is to change his mind, is….maybe….possibly….oh gosh, I don’t know…..pondering…..should I…stay or should I go…..oh Mommy….OK, he’s:
THINKING ABOUT MAYBE CHANGING FROM REPUBLICAN TO INDEPENDENT FOR HIS SENATE RUN!!
Shocked! Shocked I say!
In other words, he’s really telling us nothing we didn’t already know, he’s just being more specific about it. You see he’s “listening” to people.
“I can tell you I’m getting a lot of advice in that direction. I’m a listener and so I’m certainly listening to it,” said Crist.
(Advice from the GOP maybe? Like “drop out of the race and let Marco Palin…sorry my mistake, Marco RUBIO win and we’ll find a place for you in our permanent Republican majority some day……oh wait….scratch that..never mind.”)
“I am certainly listening to people’s counsel and advice because I think that is the smart thing to do,” the Governor said, “as I said earlier I want to do what the right thing is for the people first and I am looking at it through that lens. I really am.”
(Maybe you hadn’t heard but I just vetoed an education bill, and now people like me, they really, really like me! Plus that lens I’m looking through has cast everything in such a nice rosy glow. So I’m pandering listening to those people. Vote for me? Please?)
He says he’s taking his time while he considers the move. Given that he has until the end of the month to do so, I’m guessing that carrot will be dangling out there right up until midnight on April 30, and he really likes all the attention he gets when he’s busy saying he’s doing what’s right for the people!
Oh yes, and that one other bit of BREAKING NEWS (and stop me if you’ve heard this one before): His famous “stimulus acceptance” hug he shared with President Obama? Well NOW that was a good thing again, and he doesn’t regret it. No sir!
“Absolutely not, I embrace it, no pun intended.” he said.
(Of course that photo of the hug isn’t going away anytime soon either, so….)
After all folks, as Charlie says, it’s all about the people!
Oh, and here’s your carrot…………NAH!
