At a local Teamster’s and Plumbers and Pipefitters Union picnic this past weekend in Dover, Florida (yes, there is a Dover), Governor Charlie Crist was on the campaign trail pressing the flesh with local union members, hoping to get pry away votes from Congressman Kendrick Meek’s Big Union backers. The AFL-CIO has already endorsed Congressman Meek, but Crist is still aggressively courting Meek’s labor voting block. Crist did not deviate from his cliched talking points- yes, it still is “all about the people”, and he denied that he met with President Barack Obama in Martha’s Vinyard several weeks ago.
But things got a bit chippy at Crist’s Q&A session with the press, where yours truly, Maha-Sharkie was assaulted and harassed by two of the local Teamster’s thugs-let’s call them Bubba and Cletus. As you will see in the video, Bubba and Cletus bum-rushed El Sharko and the camera, but what wasn’t caught on camera was an innocent young girl who was run over by these thugs as they attempted to shut down El Sharko. I tried to make Cletus understand that he was embarrassing the Governor, but apparently he did not understand the English that was coming out of my mouth. I do speak several languages, including Spanish, English and Shark-ish, but if im going to stay on the trail with the Crist Campaign, I think I’m going to need to learn how to speak “Deliverance”.
