Charlie Crist is such an upbeat fellow that I'm sure he'll appreciate the fact that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee just sent out an email touting the Gov's silver fox-ish good looks citing his "Good Hair and Nice Tan." He might be a little sad that it comes as part of a compliment sandwich with a whole lot of critical meat stuck between that white bread.
The email, part of a series of fundraising messages entitled "The Rant," also notes that Forbes.com posted an article asking if Crist was indeed America's Worst Governor
. It also claims: Crist put politics first by picking George LeMieux, his former chief-of-staff, to replace Mel Martinez in the Senate; rehashing the fact he takes a lot of days off; has taken a hard right turn as of late, supposedly, to appeal to the Republican base; and that he'll end up losing, maybe, anyway to Marco Rubio.
Then it politely asks for money, before again complimenting Crist's rad tan.
Not mentioned: probably Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek. On one hand it's good for Meek that he's not directly tied to out-and-out Crist bashing. On the other, it's sort of troubling that the DSCC thinks it has a better chance of raising funds by ripping on Crist's record than by touting Meek's.
