C’mon guys, leave the blogging to those of us working at home in our underwear. Michael Bender notes that former Palm Beach Post political editor Brian E. Crowley has unveiled a new political blog in anticipation of Gov. Charlie Crist’s big announcement.
The Crowley Political Report debuts with an original sketch of Crist pulling a dead rabbit from his hat and a quick analysis of the expected announcement today that he’ll abandon the Republican Party and run for U.S. Senate as an independent.
From the blog:
By overplaying their hand the Bush-Thrasher-Rubio faction have allowed Crist to stay in the game until November. With a little finese they might have kept Crist in the GOP until after the April 30 deadline to qualify.
Now there is a real chance that Crist could pull this off. The legislature has handed him a number of populist issues – PSC, teachers, insurance, utilities – and Crist will do what he does best – “I’m the people’s governor.”
Crowley, a principal at ImMEDIAcy Public Relations, has advised several political candidates since leaving the Post in 2008.
