"I got a big problem with you wanting to be the Senator of Florida," says the man in the video below, speaking in a folksy North Florida drawl to Charlie Crist. "Because in my opinion, after looking through your record as governor, I believe you are a Democrat. You are not a Republican. You're a Democrat -- and a liberal socialist Democrat at that." Sitting in a room that looks like it was loaned to him by the Shining Path, the man then asks politely for Crist to withdraw from the Senate race.
"I'm not going to give you my Social Security number, and I'm still going to keep fishing." So there. This man is a patriot.
