Charlie Crist’s hiring of the SKD Knickerbocker media firm is another sign the Republican-turned-indie guv is making a serious play for Democratic votes in his U.S. Senate bid.

Crist has already signed “fire-breathing liberal” Democrat Robert Wexler’s former political consultant, Eric Johnson, to help him in Dem-heavy South Florida.

SKD Knickerbocker’s partners include Anita Dunn, a senior adviser to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, and its website boasts that it has “helped countless Democratic candidates and campaigns navigate tough races and win.”

Its client roster includes Obama, Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown and Jay Rockefeller, Orlando-area Democratic U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas and the para-Democratic Service Employees International Union.

The firm has also handled big-time indie campaigns for Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    I don’t know what’s the big deal here? Since Crist started to unfold his political ambitions for the governor’s office I became aware he was a left-wing moderate “Demo” disguised as a centrist Republican. Now that he came out of the closet I feel better that I did not cast a vote for him. I define him he as an opportunist; playing now Chicago style mafia politics in to secure a seat in the corrupted US soviet style senate.
    Well, let us see how this play out with the blessings of the Palm Beach post controlled press and the cox communist machinery of scientific communist propaganda. No wonder journalism is a cesspool of hypocrisy

    Nothing this corrupt closet gay does would suprise anyone with gray matter!
    He along with his beard have one ultimate goal and that is to succeed Obama in the Whitehouse. The number of under the bus incidents in order to acheive that goal is of no consequence!
    Hopefully the Federal investigations swirling around all of his incidental friends will prove fruitful and bring him, McCollum and the rest of these crooks to justice. Florida taxpayers deserve better than this!

    Hey Charlie, you’ve come out of the closet on your left leaning democratic ways. Now why don’t you do everyone a favor and come out of the closet on your homo lifestyle. You’re looking fro votes from teachers and everyone else, just come on out and tell the truth and stop fighting gay and lesbian issues to prove you are a man. It’ll be painless, the truth will set you free. Mom and dad ain’t stupid they already know!

    That is why the FORUM club was stuck with domino and the drunk lady. It is so sad that the R’s are bunch of nut jobs, the D’S are dumb, drunk and greedy. we are just broke.

    . . . . birds of a feather . . . .

    I guess Crist is thru working for the people. He’s all about the power and position. Time to clean house Florida. He’s a progressive in RINO’s clothing.

  8. Saint Petersblog Says:

    Btw, doesn’t Crist’s hiring of John Isay prove I was at least half-right about Bloomberg’s support

    I feel like I’m getting old. From when I first got into this stuff compared to now, getting a nice setup together has gotten pretty simple. I love it!
