OK, I don't think there any chance that Charlie Crist will be the GOP's VP nom, but this is getting way ridiculous.
The dude's never been married, has had several politically convenient engagements, has had ex-boyfriends and lovers talk to the press, and now... a mysteriously disappearing Charlie Crist sex tape that only Roger Stone has seen!
Yes, Roger Stone has apparently tipped off Politics1 that he is in possession of a hotel elevator video surveillance tape of the Florida guv making out with his
beard fiancee. Rated PG and completely unfit to be shown to anyone besides Roger Stone, this tape is proof positive that Charlie Crist is straight.
It might be a little suspicious that it's Roger Stone calling a web journal to tell them about this sex tape. It might be somewhat suspicious that only he happens to have a copy of a hotel surveillance tape, or that he has a copy at all. It might also be suspicious that he doesn't want anyone to see it but wants everyone to know about it, all at the exact moment that Crist's sexuality might be the only thing preventing him from being the VP nom in a month. But, hey, that's how life works.
(If you're unfamiliar with him, read up on Roger Stone. Short version: there's nothing under his hat but tomfoolery like this.)
This whole thing, though, only fuels the rumors that Crist is gay. If he weren't hiding anything, then, um, why the need to call Roger Stone?
Gay Republicans talk all the time about how Republicans are actually accepting of queer people because of gay staffers in high levels, like Rick Santorum's former comm director Robert Traynham. Why not prove everyone wrong about their homophobia and pick an openly gay VP nom? LCR could then educate us all about how gay accepting John McCain is.
But making a circus out of Crist's sexuality only attracts more attention to this whole thing. I never would have cared about Crist if he weren't pulling stunts like this.
