This is a simple truth, even if Karl Rove* said it.
The Tampa Bay Times got an early copy and apparently it contains some juicy stuff, including an anecdote about Karl Rove calling the then GOP gubernatorial candidate “chickenshit” for skipping a 2006 rally for George W. Bush.
We’re guessing Charlie’s hoping “Chickenshit Crist” doesn’t catch on as a nickname.
Given that “Chickenshit Charlie” would roll off of the tongue better? Maybe, maybe not.
But never mind that now; the real point here is that Charlie Crist was chickenshit when he avoided Bush, and he was chickenshit when Crist cozied up to Barack Obama in 2009, and Crist is going to be chickenshit all throughout the next year as he avoids Barack Obama (more accurately, Obama’s bad poll numbers) like the veritable plague. Oh, it’s going to just get better as an election cycle, ya, you betcha. I don’t know if there’s a politician loathed more by his former party than Charlie Crist is. Largely because he is pretty much chickenshit.
PS: Yeah, I know. FAR too profane to put on RedState. Sorry, but ‘chickenshit’ is pretty much the perfect word to describe the man.
*I don’t hate Rove, particularly. Or even dislike him, particularly. Just thought I’d share.
