Video: New DNC ad blows the lid off Rubio’s back wax

posted at 5:31 pm on March 10, 2010 by Allahpundit

I know, I know, he never had a back wax. Interestingly, the DNC knows it too and kinda sorta acknowledges it at the end (Rubio did in fact use his party credit card at the salon to buy gift certificates), raising the question of who this spot is really aimed at. Rubes is the butt of the joke — and, in fairness, it’s pretty funny — but it seems more like a shot at Crist for lying. Which makes sense if you read Ed’s post this morning: At the moment, Crist is still a bigger threat to Democrats in the general than Rubio is. Emphasis on “at the moment.”

Anyway, I needed a peg for the new poll out this afternoon and this’ll have to do. Warm up the bus, kids: This race is, well and truly, over.

Crist, meet fork.

ICBM on March 10, 2010 at 5:35 PM

I’m surprised nobody tagged Crist with the “racist” label. Since Marco is Hispanic, vague joke about “back hair”… you get it.

Charlie Crist. Racist. Loser.

Quick, alert LGF!

So spending $130 from a Florida GOP credit card and then paying it back makes you fiscally irresponsible.

But campaigning for $820 billion in taxpayer funds for liberal pet projects makes you fiscally conservative?

Crist is living in Oompa Loompa Land.

Crist, meet clusterfork.

Sometimes politics is just beyond stupid.

WashJeff on March 10, 2010 at 5:37 PM

Crist is done.

But this back and forth will make their debate appearances on Meet The Press and Fox News Sunday must-see TV.

cubachi on March 10, 2010 at 5:38 PM

Is there a Dem in the race? I still do not know his or her name.

This was a stupid ad cause it make Crist look bad and Rubio is a rock star. Why do the Dems want the strongest Republican to win the primary?

Elizabetty on March 10, 2010 at 5:38 PM

Crist shouldn’t try to do ‘snark’. He doesn’t do it well.

toenail on March 10, 2010 at 5:40 PM

Yeah, I don’t see how the ad is all that bad for Rubio. It makes Crist look/sound like a puss, but they have to JibJab a picture of Rubio to even poke a little fun at him.

Key West Reader on March 10, 2010 at 5:37 PM

Please don’t.

It’s bad enough that he’s hyperventilating over Sarah Palin accessing Canadian health care – at the age of five…

Spiny Norman on March 10, 2010 at 5:45 PM

Hey maybe Crist can get back in this race by very publicly embracing Obama and his Marxist agenda….oh wait, he did that already….whoops.

Memo to GOP: “moderation” = acquiescence to the Marxist agenda = political suicide.

elduende on March 10, 2010 at 5:45 PM

This Crist crash and burn of 30 points up to 30+ points down has to be some Guinness record in politics. This isn’t toast, this is carbon dust on the toaster clean-out door.

LOL… It’s so dark and lonely at the top of the dung heap. Poor LGF.

Dusty on March 10, 2010 at 5:46 PM

It was all about the embrace. Trust me. We even had an anniversary party for “The Embrace”. We warned him, he didn’t listen, so the Tea Party ran for Marco Rubio. Voila!

Key West Reader on March 10, 2010 at 5:47 PM

Looks like Coakley’s team found jobs making ads for the DNC.

RachDubya on March 10, 2010 at 5:48 PM

Beck just dumped on Graham… now back to the back waxing.

MeatHeadinCA on March 10, 2010 at 5:49 PM

See what all that spray on tan, and tanning beds does for you? A cautionary tale.

CWforFreedom on March 10, 2010 at 6:04 PM

That’s funny. Too bad we can’t add the song and change the words. Talk about viral!

Key West Reader on March 10, 2010 at 6:05 PM

Well perhaps I won’t need to change my voting status from Independent to Republican, for the primary. I think maybe Crist will indeed withdraw. Here’s hoping!

GFW on March 10, 2010 at 6:10 PM

Wax is used on the bottom of skis to help you go downhill faster. Crist seems to have mastered the concept.

GnuBreed on March 10, 2010 at 6:11 PM

I have to admit, this is hilarious, but Crist (not Rubio) does end up being the butt of the joke. All the more so because of the stupidity of Charlie “Man Tan” Crist going after his opponent for spending $130 in a “salon”.

Buy Danish on March 10, 2010 at 6:24 PM

Crist needs to call Frum to the Rescue.

(I know what all the gals are saying in this place – “You can’t get a back-wax with your shirt on, silly! Here, I’ll hold it….”)

Marcus on March 10, 2010 at 6:30 PM

AP, you could have left it at

New DNC ad blows

Crist is toast. He not only looks like one, he now smells like one…even from many states away.

Fun times!

Schadenfreude on March 10, 2010 at 6:31 PM

Crist will be the next Propaganda czar for Obama.

Schadenfreude on March 10, 2010 at 6:33 PM

Meeks is such a GD tool. He does not have a chance against either of these loosers. If the Dems had decided to run someone worthwhile I would be worried, but as usual, they have not found a decent candidate since Bob Grahm.

Squid Shark on March 10, 2010 at 6:33 PM

When he loses the primary, Crist will be appointed to something by his hug-buddy and run like a starving dog to the bowl.

Marcus on March 10, 2010 at 6:39 PM

Marcus, Obama can make him his tourism czar.

Schadenfreude on March 10, 2010 at 6:41 PM

Ladies, Gentlemen, if you please, allow me to introduce Senator-elect Rubio.

/’nuff said

Doorgunner on March 10, 2010 at 7:05 PM

Or he will run in 2012 for Nelson’s seat, but you keep up with that meme, I am sure it makes you sleep better at night thinking that every Republican that does not agree with you reeeeeallllly wants to suck at Obama’s teat.

Squid Shark on March 10, 2010 at 7:07 PM

That was funny. Crist is a pus.

AH_C on March 10, 2010 at 7:10 PM

“put a fork in it” done.

jbh45 on March 10, 2010 at 7:20 PM

You do know what you do at a salon when you’re a guy, Crist.

Just go away.

spmat on March 10, 2010 at 7:37 PM

Remind me again, please. Which Florida senate candidate married his wife fairly quickly after rumors about his longtime bachelorhood began to circulate online? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s stupid for the object of rampant speculation to raise the issue of his opponent’s masculinity.

Terrie on March 10, 2010 at 9:13 PM

This the best they can come up with?

t.ferg on March 10, 2010 at 9:53 PM

That ad isn’t even funny, not even if Allahpundit says so. Why does the DNC care what’s going on in the GOP primary?

SouthernGent on March 10, 2010 at 9:56 PM

What?? He got a back wax? OMG, then I’ve got to vote for Kendrick Meeks.

chris999 on March 10, 2010 at 11:03 PM

Squid Shark on March 10, 2010 at 6:33 PM

You sound genuinely disappointed that someone from the GOP will win this seat.

hawkdriver on March 11, 2010 at 3:07 AM

I know I can’t be the only pessimist in this bunch who’s concerned about the Democrats and thier bag-o-tricks, or the GOP and their bag-o-ineptitude. If you don’t mind, I will wait to do my happy dance until after the election.

Extrafishy on March 11, 2010 at 7:56 AM

With every passing day, the cristophiles get more bitter.
