How convenient. Just in time to squash rumors that he’s gay so now he can be in the running to be McCain’s VP pick.

Is this the guy who let Terri Schaivo die of dehydration?

And if so, does Fiance know he’ll pull the plug on her too, wife or not? ;)

Does anyone suspect this might be a so-called McGreevey Marriage? Just asking, sure hope its not, but rather a good “normal one!”

More likely, he's finally found someone who is willing to give him cover on his well known sexual preference. She gets to be the Governor's wife and doesn't have to sleep with the guy.

YUPPER! You betcha! He was as involved as all the others - did ABSOLUTELY nothing to help Terri! I consider him as much a monster as shiavo and greer. They were all in it together.

Its actually quite shocking, that its a woman I mean. He must think being married gives him a better chance at VP.

Yes it IS true! He was attorney general at that time, and he has ample opportunity to look into the atrocity, and he refused.

Hmmmm. Did McCain insist on this? It’s going to take more than hetrosexual marriage for Charlie Crist to be an acceptable running mate.

Do these journalists and writers ever proof their work? According to this they were married last Thursday at his apartment, LOL.

Thursday, at his St. Petersburg apartment, Crist asked Carole Rome, his girlfriend of nine months, to marry him.....there fixed it.

“Crist says the couple may plan a fall wedding, most likely a small ceremony in St. Petersburg followed by a larger reception at the governor’s mansion.”

My advice is for him to get married next weekend in Las Vegas, and then do a full-court press to get on the McCain Ticket for Veep.

Constant press availabilities, relentless campaigning to be the Vice President.

Works for me.

I wonder if Charlie is ready to be a daddy to her teenage girls. This is going to be one heck of a union given her socialite status in NY & all.

Yeah, Governor Suntan doesn't pay property taxes.

Although I must say despite the fact that he is a weird SOB, he apparently as been too busy chasing the VP slot to bother us average joes here in the sunshine state.

After all, if a bald faced liar and hypocrite like MYTH ROMNEY has a shot at VP, Crist figures he's got a shot as long as he only marries one wife at a time.
