GIVING UP ON THE IDEA OF "BEING NICE BOYS"
Last Wednesday I mentioned here that state GOP chair Carole Jean Jordan had sent a written pledge for both of the major gubernatorial candidates, Attorney General Charlie Crist and Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher, to sign agreeing to abide by former president Ronald Reagan's "11th Commandment": Not to speak ill of each other.
That pledge has now been rescinded, according to the Orlando Sentinel columnists Kennedy and Garcia. Apparantly the Crist campaign had provided a copy of the oath to a reporter, which caused Gallagher to compare the action to "...somebody working for Ronald Reagan leaking documents to the Soviets in 1983."
I mentioned in my original post on this that the pledge wouldn't last very long. Seems as though it didn't even get off the drawing board.
