I just had satellite TV installed and my new provider waited to tell me until after it was installed that they’re “in negotiations” with Fox News, so I have to get my TV news from the alphabets.
Seemingly completely unrelated, Kendrick Meek, the Democrat candidate for Florida’s vacant Senate seat was asked by Bill Clinton to drop out of the race (he won’t admit it and Clinton won’t admit it). You can get the whole story at Ace of Spades.
So, anyway, I watched Meek this morning on one of those alphabets, I think it was NBC’s morning show, whatever it’s called (the POS). Meek ended his interview by saying he’s not giving up his candidacy so Crist can win over Rubio because he has the endorsement of the VFW PAC. That perked up my ears so I went to the VFW PAC’s website to see if it was true. The VFW PAC’s website is down, so I checked out the .pdf copy of the endorsements which I saved weeks ago and sure enough, there’s Meek’s name.
Meek’s poll numbers are at 15% in the three way race, so if the PAC’s intention was to have some influence in Florida, it’s not likely that supporting the badly trailing Meeks was going to do that. In fact, the VFW PAC has probably succeeded in pissing off both of the other more likely candidates.
The PAC may be out of business, but their legacy lives on.
