It sounds like Rick Wilson is not… exactly looking forward to the Florida gubernatorial election. More like he’s serenely aware that destroying Charlie Crist’s political career is doing the Lord’s work:
Tonight as the sun sets in Pensacola, Charlie Crist will be the Democratic nominee for Governor of Florida. Yes, there’s a kind of pro-forma primary going on between Charlie and the hapless State Senator Nan Rich, a grating South Florida liberal of the Bella Abzug stripe, but everyone knows it isn’t serious. Crist has been the de facto nominee for over a year, plodding along in his faux-shucks way.
In essence, it isn’t about Crist the candidate. It’s about the Democratic Party. It’s a window into the deep, desperate soul of a state party looking for a foothold back into power. They know Crist is lying to them, and they love it. They know he’s playing them for patsies, and they’re lined up around the block to kiss his manorexic backside.
You’ve never seen such abject fawning for a man they know is a pathological liar and weapons-grade weirdo.
And Rick Wilson just goes on from there. The good news is… well, the good news is that the Democrats nominated Crist; and the Florida Democratic party may not really understand yet that Rick Scott has the personal resources to lovingly describe and illustrate every single one of Charlie Crist’s multitude of mutant (I don’t think Rick Wilson used that one) qualities. And the thing to keep in mind? If you look at AOSHQDD’s numbers it’s looking exceedingly unlikely that Crist will do better in his essentially uncontested primary than Scott will do in his. That doesn’t mean that Rick Scott will win, but it does mean that Crist isn’t exactly setting the Florida election cycle on fire.
I trust that Rick Wilson will not mind if I suggest that this is his mental state right now:

PS: Yup. Rick Scott for Florida Governor.

and to think that this slime was within sniffing distance of a spot on a national ticket at one point.
can we send Scott a copy of the recent LBJ bio?
The primary numbers tell the story (from AoSHQDD):
Total votes: As of right now, more than 125,000 more Republicans voted.
Rick Scott: 88% of GOP vote. Charlie Crist: 75% of DEM vote.
Rick Scott: 833,000+ votes. Charlie Crist: 616,000+ votes (823,000+ Total DEM)
Rick Scott still has to earn every vote, but sans a complete meltdown, I don’t see how Charlie Crist can win.
While talking about Florida, please take note of Jennifer Sullivan. I would put down good money right now that she’ll be President one day, if she wanted.
Even liberal partisan Joy Reid can see the writing on the wall.
“faux-shucks” is a pretty good one.
