Crist: Black As He Wants To Be

They're calling Charlie Crist Florida's first "African American" governor. Perfectly understandable that pigmental confusion might arise, but it's actually just a deep tan. Or, as the governor hilariously wants us to believe, the hue of his Mediterranean heritage.

But look at the photo below, which is Greek in more ways than one. Looks like Crist hadn't yet developed that swarthy complexion yet. Seemed to really take hold when after he became a glad-handing, social butterfly politician.
