Democrats, signs, and hoisting on petards.

Is Karen Diebel Okay?
I know nothing about this race, but like Dan, I was given troubling police reports that are either real and very bizarre, or suggests something is not right with Karen Diebel.

Florida Voters Realize Charlie Crist is an Orange Opportunist
A couple of weeks have passed since Charlie Crist abandoned the GOP to run as an independent.

Good news: Crist isn’t giving that money back.
This is good news… Gov. Charlie Crist told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on April 30 that he would “probably” give refunds to donors who don’t approve of him leaving the GOP.
