Normally politicians' Twitters are horrendously boring things. Dan Gelber's is no exception, except for about a minute ago when the state senator from Miami Beach and attorney general candidate roasted Charlie Crist, and in effect, RPOF chair Jim Greer.
Crist visited Toussaint L'ouverture Elementary School today for a hurricane preparedness visit (with his real life lady wife). If you remember, Crist's handpicked party chair made national headlines earlier this month for labeling President Obama's address to school children as "socialist indoctrination." Should parents have been given the option of keeping their kids home for the day so they were not indoctrinated in Charlie Crist's dangerously moderate, style-over-substance ways? Discuss in the comments.
