Charlie Crist Now Just Working As A Personal Injury Lawyer

Ahh, Charlie Crist. Once upon a time people thought Crist, who served as the governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011, had a bright political future. He was going to run for Senate, if he wasn't snatched up as a vice presidential candidate for John McCain first. He was an up-and-comer, a leading light, a future face of the GOP. But then there was that one time where he was nice to President Barack Obama and his whole world came tumbling down. Now, it seems that he's cutting late-night teevee commercials for some personal injury law firm in Florida.

Winning the future! Ben Smith catches this video, from Sunshine State Sarah:

Yes, the one-time Attorney General of the whole danged state of Florida has hung out his shingle at Morgan and Morgan, and you can come "visit him" at an email address, that's "for the people." Were you injured on a cruise? Have you experienced health complications as a result of taking Yaz or Yasmin? Did you slip and fall on property owned by the state of Florida that was improperly maintained by whomever it was that was recently governor? What about sinkholes? You know, the state of Florida is full of those! No matter what's wrong, Charlie Crist will help you fix your business.

I didn't think things could get worse for Crist after he was made to apologize to ex-Talking Heads frontman David Byrne on YouTube, but there you go. The upside, however, is that his post-political career is shaping up to be something that would make for an excellent original series for the USA Network, where "characters" are "welcome."
