Totally Straight Gov. Crist Won’t Just Give Himself the Senator Gig


With Republican Sen. Mel Martinez announcing he’s immediately resigning as the U.S. senator from Florida (amidst speculation he wants the top job at Florida State University), one wild rumor blowing in the wind had heterosexual Gov. Charlie Crist — whose job it is to pick Martinez’s replacement — would appoint himself for the job.

Turns out, Crist — who has a storied history with gay rightsisn’t going that route … even though he’s running for senator next year.

Which means Crist is either going to pick somebody he knows he’ll easily defeat in November 2010, or he’s quite confident he can oust Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, who’s up for re-election next year. Absolute power is so sexy sometimes.

      Maybe he’ll appoint his former beard Katherine Harris.

      Every time I see this guy he looks more and more like the negative print of a photograph.

      I, for one, love, love, love Charlie Crist….first of all, he reminds me of my very first lizard belt; moreover, I have posters of him all over my wall in my reparative therapy cell at Exodus….true, he is not bare chested in the first posters, but once I cut his head off and paste it onto David Beckem’s bare chest, you have a target worthy of reaching while mounted onto the ceiling!

      @Youcanthandlethetruth: Back on your meds, YCHTT, your incoherent ramblings are making you seem more whacked by the hour, and then no one will read what you have to say.

      Didn’t you read his comment about flattery is the sincerest form of flattery…no, that’s not right..sincereness is the most flattering, er, imitation means you’re too poor to go out and buy your own? Well anyway, something like that. LOL

      If he were honorable, he’d hand it over to Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a pro-gay Cuban right-winger who could actually help move the Republicans from being loonies and hate-mongers.
