Bill Young’s widow tells Charlie Crist to stay the hell away from the funeral.

OK, she doesn’t swear at Charlie Crist.  Mrs. Young is being ladylike about it.


This e-mail is to officially advise you that your presence at my husband’s memorial services will be unacceptable. I have watched over the years, as Bill had, your transparent attempts to manipulate the political arena. I don’t want my husband’s memorial service to be another opportunity for that and I will not tolerate anyone turning this into a platform for political gain.
Please honor my families request.

Beverly Young
Widow of Congressman Bill Young

If you define ‘ladylike’ as including the subtext If you ignore my command then I will feel perfectly justified in setting dogs upon you… which, yeah, I think that I will define it that way, at least when it applies to situations involving Charlie Crist.

PS: Charlie Crist will not have an easy time of it as he thinks if he runs for Governor next year as a Democrat.  The people that he normally fundraised from in the past more or less share the same opinion of him as Mrs. Young does; and his new buddies are going to make the man crawl a little. Or a lot: Crist has said a lot of opportunistic things over the years.

PPS: That Paul Wellstone funeral debacle cast a long shadow, huh?

  1. It is increasingly apparent that Orange Charlie drank his own kool-aid… believed his own press releases… or just plain spent too long out in the sun.
    It would be a sad and pathetic end that could be glossed over in the official hagiography if he’d actually, you know, *go away* .. but he seems determined to make it worse.

  2. Democrats don’t exactly have a strong candidate in position in Florida that I know of. Granted Rick Scott is in a terrible position after the Zimmerman debacle. For a purple state Florida has a fairly strong Republican Party.

    1. I’m .. curious why you think the FLA GOP is particularly strong. It looks, from way up here, to be fractured rather badly .. along the usual Tea Party / Establishment lines.
      Orange Charlie’s explanation, for what it’s worth, is that he’s trying to pick up enough of the “establishment” GOP who fear/hate the Tea Party and enough autopilot-Dems to make a “centrist” bid.
      Insert pic of dead opossum in the middle of the road, with a yellow stripe here.

      1. They control the legislature and the Governor’s office, as well as most statewide elected officials. They’ve got a majority of the Congressional Delegation and one half of the Senate Delegation. The FL GOP is stronger then Some other states.
