No Longer Beating a Dead Horse

June 24, 2010

I give up – there’s really no reason to rally behind the only real Democrat in the Democratic primary race. No Party Charlie Crist is with us on everything except what he’s not with us on and that’s good enough for me, so the primary is officially moot. Look, I will always like Kendrick – [...]

The Chain Gang Charlie Crist is Born

The Chain Gang Charlie Crist is Born

“I’m as conservative as any governor. I’m chain gang Charlie. I’m pro-gun. I’m pro life,” That’s Charlie Crist way back in 2009 before he made a sincere and heartfelt decision to completely change. Charlie Crist recently became the darling of Florida’s teachers as he polished his indie cred by vetoing an absolutely horrible education bill.  [...]

The difference between the Democrat in the Democratic primary race for Florida Senate and the other guy who is running in the Democratic primary can be summed up with these two short clips.

This Is Democracy?

June 19, 2010

Florida’s statewide filing deadline for November races fell on Friday and news reports highlighted a great example of the kind of behavior that disgusts voters who say that they are just fed up with the same old “business as usual” as politicians from both parties took turns abusing a loophole in Florida law that allows [...]

Kendrick Meek Needs Us Now

June 17, 2010

Charlie Crist is no progressive. “I’m as conservative as any governor. I’m chain gang Charlie. I’m pro-gun. I’m pro life,” There is a true progressive in the Florida Senate race, and he is being all but ignored by the progressive community.  Kendrick Meek needs and deserves the support of everyone who is looking to put [...]

Will Meek Be the Last Pol Standing in Nov.?

June 4, 2010

In the 3 way race that is expected to develop for Florida Senate, Kendrick Meek is perfectly positioned to benefit from scandals rocking the Florida GOP. No party Charlie Crist’s hand-picked head of the Florida Republicans was just arrested for… stealing from the Florida Republicans. Marco Rubio is also caught up in the scandal, as the IRS is investigating reports that he more or less lived off of a Florida Republican Party American Express Card for several years. Perhaps most importantly, Crist’s and Rubio’s problems are indicative of a GOP brand in Florida that is heavily tainted by rampant corruption.
