Charlie's revelation to NYT: I don't use bronzer

Crist_in_nyt_magazine_2The New York Times devotes one-page of its Sunday magazine to a Q and A introducing America to Charlie Crist, because he's being considered as a possible running mate to John McCain. So what provocative, probing questions do they ask our governor? Read here.

Suffice it to say, they reveal nothing new that a simple Google search wouldn't field and they use their precious space for nothing more than recycled news that a basic clip search would have accomplished. Ahh, big time journalism, new millenium style. Oh, but they do pivot a question off of Carl Hiaasen's column in the Miami Herald.

Here's an excerpt:

Q: "The novelist Carl Hiaasen has publicly asked that you excuse yourself from the vice-presidential sweepstakes, since you have been governor for only 17 months and haven’t accomplished much, in his estimation. A: I appreciate his counsel.

Q: "If you became vice president, he wrote in The Miami Herald, you would be better remembered for your tan than for your leadership. A: I hear that too. And that’s also very flattering.

Q: "I trust you use self-tanning lotion and stay out of the sun. A: No. It’s the sun. And it’s my heritage. I’m of Greek descent.

Am I missing something, he thought that was flattering????????

Wow, such journalism: whether or not he uses a bronzer.

No mention of his being a self-loathing homosexual.

I am so so so sorry I voted for this man, the stories I know.... We need another vice president for sure

MM

He is constantly over spending and yet he cuts funds for education. DISGUSTING !

He certainly doe not exude leadership qualities.
Imagine as VP one step away from the Presidency
with an old 72 year old serving.Scary.
