To no one's surprise, the St. Pete Times has endorsed their hometown boy, Charlie Crist.
First thing that popped into my head when I saw this headline was that, considering the St. Pete Times has been in the tank for our Oompa Loompa Governor from the get-go, this endorsement was no more surprising than seeing "Bert endorses Ernie."
|Roommates, best friends, and...politicians?|
Anyway, I was getting ready to write something scathing about this super-pander of an endorsement, when I saw this brilliant post over at Practical State:
The St. Petersburg Times, considered by many to be the PREMIER Deadwood Press paper in Florida, demonstrates once again why Newspapers are dying off in droves. They endorsed Charlie Crist for Senate...
...St. Pete Editorial guys: PUT DOWN THE CRACK PIPE…Think about it. You just endorsed one of the most opportunistic, self absorbed and hypocritical men in American Politics for the Florida US Senate Seat and you are trying to make the case that this is a “Good Thing“. Why don’t go you go ahead and endorse John Edwards to be the next Pope while you are at it?
Well said, guys. The only thing that makes less sense than a Floridian who actually cares about this state supporting Charlie for Senate, is a baseball team who actually likes winning picking Charlie to be their pitcher.
