The subtitle should be "How I'm *Totally* Gunning For The 2016 Democratic Nomination (If Hillary Doesn't Run)". I hate to say it, but he could very well pull it off, particularly if the GOP finally nominates a bona fide teabagger nutjob like Ted Cruz. (Let's not forget that even Hillary was once a Republican, and worked on Goldwater's '64 campaign against LBJ.)
Charlie Crist's ex-boyfriends are known by name and photo (and police record for one of them). Put that up against his two bearded marriages and people aren't going to trust him.
He should pick Aaron Schock for his running mate! Crist-Schock 2016!

It seems that writing a book will result in the media going at him for what he doesn't cover in the book. His lesbian first wife wants no publicity so he's not going to write about her. She and her g/f live quietly in Jacksonville. One of his ex-boyfriends is now an ex-con. Will his book cover that? Will he explain how two ex-boyfriends were paid to leave Florida when he was running for governor? Will he admit to bearding in his current marriage?
It would be awesome if he wrote an HONEST book.
He won't, though.
Seriously, WEHT Bruce Carlton Jordan and all those other guys Crist fucked?
Here's an interesting article about closeted Charlie from last September.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
