Florida Atwitter Over Charlie Crist's Marriage, To A Woman!

News

We think Charlie Crist is an overall good guy, savin' the Everglades and what not, so we're a little worried for him now that it looks like he's actually going through with thisheterosexual marriage of his. It's being reported in Florida that the governor's pink wedding invitations are arriving in mailboxes only a few weeks before the big show on December 12. The dispatching of invitations is a big step, Charlie! Are you sure this is what you want?? We think you have reservations. BIG ones. Included in the invitation is a note that reads, "No gifts please, due to Florida law." Ha ha, "law." Is it really because you don't want them all asking for their gifts back in six months? Anyway, Florida's Fat Cats are all gossiping about who's invited and who's not (i.e. who's a loser). Apparently Crist's barber is so cool that he could've had an invitation but told Charlie, nah, don't bother with me. Hmmph!


It's like seventh grade -- who will get invited to the popular kids' bar mitzvahs, and who will have to settle for Acne Ari's?

Who will be among the roughly 200 guests?

"We're invited," said Debbie Sembler, whose husband, Brent, is a St. Petersburg real estate developer who was finance chairman during Crist's gubernatorial campaign. In keeping with a St. Petersburg tradition, the invitation they received was hand-canceled through the downtown Open Air Post Office. Brent Sembler and Crist were members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at Florida State University.

[St. Petersburg Mayor Rick] Baker, a Republican who attended FSU with the governor, last week had not been asked.

"I don't know that I haven't, but I haven't seen anything," he said Thursday.

Or maybe, Mayor Baker, you've seen far too much of Charlie Crist back in the frat days, yes? Get a few cocktails in ya at the reception, then ya might casually tell some of those... "stories"? We can't have that now, can we?

Martha McSally is worried. Everything was coming up Martha when Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey picked her to fill the late John McCain's Senate seat. But now the junior senator has to hold that seat in 2020, and actual elections are where she has her troubles. Kyrsten Sinema, she of the fierce wardrobe, defeated McSally last year when they were running against each other for Jeff Flake's old seat. Arizona hadn't elected a Democratic senator since 1988.

McSally's likely challenger next year is Mark Kelly, who's a goddamn astronaut. We appreciate her service as an Air Force pilot but really, Kelly's been in space, where the Klingons are. Kelly's identical twin is also an astronaut. McSally has four siblings and none of them are astronauts or even her twin. She can't win this.

Besides, this is Kelly's campaign announcement video. When his awesome wife, Gabby Giffords, shows up, we just lose it. Why are we even bothering with an election?

FINALLY. Of course, we say "finally," because we haven't been behind the scenes in the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees to witness the negotiating and wrangling firsthand, so we don't know what it's taken to make this happen, but clear your calendars for July 17, because Bobby Mueller is goin' to Congress!

Committee chairs Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler sent the letter late yesterday, accompanied by a subpoena, for Mueller to testify at 9 a.m. Eastern on July 17, which is a Wednesday, so you will presumably not be busy with brunch. The hearings for each committee will be back to back, after which members of Mueller's staff will meet with committee staff behind closed doors.

Schiff told Rachel Maddow last night that it should not be viewed as a friendly subpoena, because as we all know, Mueller has been very reluctant to become the star of the political circus this will surely create. However, he's gonna have to suck it up, because as we all saw after what happened when Mueller addressed the nation for 10 whole minutes, there is great value in actually having Mueller breathe life into his own work, for an American audience that hasn't read his 448-page report. (And we don't blame them/you! We probably wouldn't have read it all if it wasn't our job. It would probably be on our "list," like "someday I am going to watch 'The Sopranos' start to finish finally. And then I will read the Mueller Report!")

Point is, it needs to happen on live TV, where people can gather around at work and on the train and in the Fantastic Sams while they gets their hair did, and let this highly respected public servant tell the story of how America's most hostile enemy attacked the 2016 election in order to help Donald Trump, how the Trump campaign was positively orgasmic over that reacharound, and how Trump criminally obstructed the investigation into that hostile foreign attack at every turn.

And because Robert Mueller is a patriotic American who respects the rule of law and our institutions, he will be complying with the subpoena, because of fucking course he will.

Right off the bat, we have a couple of questions:
