Smarter than you think

By now you’ve heard of Fangate.  Charlie Crist and Florida Governor Rick Scott met for a debate — sort of.  Things got held up because Scott stayed off the stage pouting that Crist got a fan and he didn’t.  Yeah, I know that’s not what Scott said, but we all know that’s what he meant.

At first I thought the whole thing was just silly.  Then I thought it was a stupid move by Scott.  Now I’m not so sure.  The Republican candidate had nothing to gain and everything to lose by participating in the debate.  Let’s face it: he’s not very photogenic and he tends to say the wrong things at the wrong times.  His poll ratings, already not doing well, were almost certain to plummet after the debate.  And, of course, there’d be all those goofs that he opponent would use against him for the rest of the political season.

But not anymore.  No one knows what he said during the debate because the only thing playing on the news is the opening seven minutes.  You know, the part where he’s not on stage.  The part where everybody else is arguing about the fan.

So, if anything, he’s come out ahead by pulling this stunt.  Or at least Scott is ahead of where he’d have been if he’d just showed up and done the debate.  Not looking so stupid now, is he?  Well, you know, in comparison, anyway.

 

Be seeing you.
