Crist on Fox News: Rubio Charged a "Back Wax" to Republican Party

Signs of desperation in Charlie Crist's camp. That's an appearance yesterday on Greta Van Susteren's Fox News show. Around the two-minute mark, you can hear Crist muse about whether Rubio's famously expensive haircut, charged to a Republican Party credit card, was in fact a "back wax." Full transcript of the interview is here.

All's fair in politics, but it's a cheap little jab by Crist, especially since it comes right after he's made to respond to Rubio's allegations that the governor ripped off taxpayers in the purchase of Everglades land from U.S. Sugar.
