— Jack M. Many of you are wondering what I am going to run on should I declare an independent candidacy for the United States Senate.
I think the most compelling issue is abundantly clear. Quite simply, I am going to run on the platform of Repeal & Replace!
Seriously...doesn't that link prove my conservative bona-fides to you wingnuts? What more do you want out of me?
Oh...and maybe I'll try to get Bill Clinton a Congressional Gold Medal for sending that Cuban punk back to Havana. During the primary campaign, I came to appreciate just how prudent and farsighted a gesture that was. In fact, as I gazed upon the increasing distance between myself and Speaker Rubio in the polls, I often found myself asking "Where is Janet Reno when she's really needed?"
So, that's pretty much it. Repealing the tanning tax and deporting inconvenient Cubans before they have a chance to grow up and run against you.
That's really all I got. Obama's stimulating everything else just fine, I think.
Well, that's not really true. I do have one other selling point.
I blow one mean Conch! That's important to Florida's voters, especially those who live in the Keys. Why, on a good day, one can see virtually unlimited conch roaming wild and free in their native habitat!
See...here I am putting my talent to full, effective use.
People tell me I have a natural talent for it. "Charlie," they say "you seem like a guy who's blown a lot of conch." I also hear voters tell me that "Washington is full of conch-suckers like you" and that makes me confident that I'll fit in just fine! Unlike my two opponents, Rubio and Meek, who I have never seen blow a conch. I don't think anyone's ever even alleged it.
I mean, that has to count for something, right? My "learning curve" will be much shorter than theirs, and I will be able to get to work on behalf of Floridians that much quicker.
The more I think about it, the more excited I get! I can see it now....hanging out in the cloakrooms, voting with the Democrats 95% of the time, and transforming myself into a one man Chamber of Commerce for Florida Conch.
I have to end this post now, as I have a phone call from Senator Graham to return. He wants to discuss a "comprehensive conch cap and trade" bill, and I am eager to show my ability to reach around the aisle.
See you fine folks in November!

Take it from me, when it comes to blowing conch, it's the tongue action that separates the men from the boys.

Every Republican donor to Crist should demand their donations be returned asap.
Then let him find a replacement source.

Cornyn told reporters today that donors across the country have already requested refunds from Crist.
That process is well under way, he told reporters today. People have already begun to ask for their money back.
I saw another story today (but don't have the link handy) that Crist's campaign was talking about pro-rating donor refunds (pro-rating for what?)

Charlie Crist's campaign giving donors partial refunds.
The Charlie Crist campaign is already hearing from donors asking for their money back, and the campaign is giving donors pro-rated refunds.Posted by Adam Smith at 12:09:46 PM on April 29, 2010
Which begs the question of why only partial refunds? He's only refunding the money he hasn't spent yet?

He's taking a principled position. It's not fair to expect GOP donations to be kept by an independent candidate. But GOP donations to a stealth Dem shitheel is fair game, bitches.

Conch? - more like a cleverly disguised opium pipe.

Advice for Charlie:
Blow is just a euphemism.

Well it's obvious he's no tea bagger.
