March of the Scumbags - Not As Dumb As They Look

But still pretty stupid, really.

Governor Charlie "Nope, Not Gay" Crist decided that he should stick a finger in the eye of the Republican leadership in the Legislature, and vetoed Senate Bill 6. SB6 would have pretty much ended teacher tenure while pegging teacher pay to student test scores. It would have pretty much guaranteed at least two generations of dumb kids coming out of Florida schools - which would have been prime fodder for the state Republican Party.

According to a report from Talking Points Memo, former GOP Senator 'Connie' Mack resigned as Crist's campaign big wheel. Considering that Crist currently has the social cachet of roadkill right now vis-a-vis his primary rival, Marco Rubio, I don't blame Crist for wanting to stick it to the GOP. Crist wanted to be Senator, so he expected the leadership to back him and put the bag on Rubio.

Interestingly, there's a third Teabag candidate, who could leech enough votes away from Rubio to give Crist a slight margin of victory in the primary. That would leave the Democratic candidate, Kendrick Meek, who right now is valiantly trying to get people to pay attention to him for a change.

Kendrick, there's plenty of time for that - let the GOP savage each other, an you can put yourself forward as the Sane Choice.

The "special" (as in special education) session of the Legislature ends on April 30. Still plenty of time for them to fuck things up royally for the state.
