America's trailer park.Popular moderate orange-skinned married-to-a-lady-now Republican Governor Charlie Crist was knocked out of the Florida GOP Senate primary by angry teabaggers and their angry Tea Party candidate Marco Rubio, and now the “independent” Crist is looking pretty good to Democrats. Why? Well mostly because some insane rich slob has bought his way onto the Democratic ticket, and the guy is really gross and weird — even for Florida.

The Politico has this important political update:

Democrats are beginning to consider the increasingly realistic prospect that their nominee might be a “meltdown mogul” — one who collects erotic art, had Mike Tyson serve as his best man and once hosted “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss as a house guest.

Tacky, sure, but not a dealbreaker for Floridians, who are the tackiest people in America. The thing that makes Greene unpalatable to the people who welcomed Rush Limbaugh and O.J. Simpson may be the way Greene made his fortune: By betting against the housing market and cashing in on the collapse of Florida’s real estate. [Politico]

  1. Awful. Ken has deemed me tacky, and I may just have to cast a stinky vote for ole’ Charlie, just to keep teabag Rubio out of the Senate.

  2. It would be especially funny — in a sad, pathetic, Florida Democratic way — if the candidate the Dems backed got indicted for corruption in a GOP fund-raising scandal. Meanwhile, Kendrick Meek is probably getting used to people talking about him as though he wasn’t there.

  3. Mister Meek happens to be a person of the Black persuasion, which may not sit well with some Floridians in the Panhandle (America’s taint).

  4. [re=599842]Tommmcatt[/re]: B-but Nevada has Las Vegas, with a fake Eiffel Tower and a fake Venice and a fake New York….isn’t that classy as all getout? Besides, you couldn’t tell the difference between Ken’s part of California and Nevada if they didn’t put up a sign at the border, and I didn’t want to hurt his feelings. I fear the ban hammer.

  5. Can’t make myself care about the senate race at this point. Maybe after the primaries I can’t vote in.

    Much more fun to listen to Corrine Brown twist in the wind trying to defend our God-given right to gerrymandering.

    Between this and other lawsuits and the Legislature throwing in a poison pill on the ballot to try to kill it, I’m looking forward to things getting real ugly real fast.

  6. That asshat’s (Greene)commercials have been running constantly for a month. He’s an annoying SOB. He’s been using the time-honored Florida tradition of having his aged mother appearing in his ads telling everyone what a good boy her Jeffy is.

    I’m voting for Kendrick.

  7. [re=599838]V572625694[/re]: How dare you speak unkindly of the people of Joe Scarbotough’s neighborhood. We all (Rednecks) know Joe just moved to New Jersey to rake in a little Yankee Cash and talk to Mika. Now that is honorable work for a Panhandler. Besides he can still sit in his High Chair and bash the Dems. Honorable Work, I tell ya.

  8. [re=599850]V572625694[/re]: Oh, and it’s just plain rude to mention tackiness without a shout-out to Wall Drug, SD. The rest of the state could be Edwardian in its decorum and still that mess would make up for it.

  9. That license plate says Retired and No complaints. I wonder if the person who made that graphic has actually MET any retired people, let alone retired people in Florida. Complaining is a form of recreation.

  10. [re=599814]V572625694[/re]: [re=599886]SayItWithWookies[/re]: [re=599842]Tommmcatt[/re]: Now if we’re gonna get into a pissing contest over tacky, I need not remind y’all that Mississippi is the Mount Rushmore of tacky. I mean, seriously, we gave the world Elvis, Travis Childers, and Haley Barbour, not to mention the Redneck Riviera of Biloxi/Gulfport/Pass Christian/Pascagoula (which makes the nuclear wasteland of South Texas look positively genteel).

    Oh, and Oprah is from Kosciusko. Game, set, match.

  11. Has is always been Florida’s policy to put a picture in the Governor’s penis on their license plates?

    If so, I’m really looking forward to the campaign ads.

  12. So, he has erotic art of Mike Tyson, and he serves Heidi Fleiss? Well, at least she’s a nice Jewish girl.

    Actually, the pr0wn appeals to the panhandle, the Tyson to Miami, and … ok… Tampa and Tallahassee are a loss.

  13. I’m from Florida and I admit that we’re the tackiest state. We’re the gaudiest state too. Our rich folks love greek columns and gold plated toilets. They think it’s fancy.

    I’m voting for Crist for several reasons. 1) Meek is not promoting himself. If his numbers are just as low in November as they are now then voting for him is a vote for Rubio. 2) Rubio is the teabagger golden boy. If he wins it will give them legitimacy. 3) Crist will not run for the presidency. 4) He will probably caucus with the dems. If he doesn’t and tacks right at least he’s not Marco Fucking Rubio.
