Hell Hath No Fury Like a Governor Scorned!

Kudos to Florida Governor Charlie Crist for vetoing his state's mean-spirited abortion ultra-sound bill - one more lame attempt to deny women their constitutionally protected right to end a pregnancy. Crist, who is every bit the political whore that Landrieu and Vitter from Louisiana are - has a history of being all over the abortion map, depending on which way the political breezes are blowing.

Needless to say, Florida conservatives are red-in-the-face pissed over the Crist veto of one of their pet bills. But hey, the fools brought that veto on themselves.

Charlie Crist crawled in bed with those clowns when he ran for governor a couple of years ago. He won that election and tried to use his freshly minted right-wing bonafides to become John McCain's running mate, even going to the extreme of giving up his lifetime of bachelorhood to quash those pesky rumors that inevitably spring up regarding single men of a certain age. McCain, alas, chose to bypass Charlie in favor of a certifiable lunatic.

But Mr. Crist still wanted to get out of the old folks home that is Florida and move to bright lights and big city of Washington, DC. After being rejected by cranky old John McCain, he chose to run for the U.S. Senate from Florida as his new path to the nation's capital. Crawling into bed with the knuckle-draggers had worked before in the governor's race, so he got out the lube and tried it again. But this time those fickle conservatives kicked him out of bed in favor of a younger and more dynamic state senator by the name of Marco Rubio.

And then they still had the gall to expect good-time Charlie to sign their abortion bill! Well, screw that!
