Crist, Meek Dunce Meter: In Competition for Union Vote, Both Look Like Losers
Flip-flop rating: 9. Three years ago, Crist was a Republican governor who supported Florida's anti-union "Right-to-Work" law. His concern for the rank and file is about as strong as his UV protection. Plus, this particular contract fight, between the stagehands and the Kravis Center, has been going on for a decade. Teamster Charlie, where were you ten years ago?

P.S.No, it doesn't help that you joined the picket line instead of giving your talk. What was the point except to pose for the cameras?
Entertainment rating: 8. A bunch of rich suits paid $55 a pop for tickets to see two high-profile, would-be senators speak. Instead, they got stuck with last-minute stand-ins. There's some sweet irony there.
Embarrassment rating: 9. These are our leaders, people. One of them will soon become the next senator from Florida, unless their right-wing, "drill baby, drill" opponents wins. Voting in Florida hasn't been this shameful since the butterfly ballot.
