No, not that oil spill.
The divorce between Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, the Republican office holder-turned-independent Senate candidate, is getting messy. How messy? The state GOP has turned to eBay to sell an oil painting of the governor — er, “Untrustworthy, Self-Serving Politician,” according to the listing — in an effort to “Help…Get Our Money Back!” More from the listing:
- Canvas is naturally sensitive to changes of temperature and humidity, just as the Charlie Crist’s political convictions are subject to fluctuations in poll numbers.
- Depending upon variety of conditions, the stretch canvas may periodically lose and regain tautness, much like Charlie Crist periodically loosens or regains positions on a variety of issues.
- Ornate gold frame made of manufactured wood, similar to the fabricated conservative values of the politician depicted within.
- Estimated Value – PRICELESS!
Wow, just wow. With just under seven days left in the auction, the highest bid the last time I checked was $1,469.69.
Feel free to talk about the real oil spill in this comments thread.
