Crist supports marriage ban; Christ remains mum

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 12-59Florida governor Charlie Crist, a man rumored to be on McCain's short list for Veep, has been noncommittal in the past about a few things, including whether or not he supports a state amendment banning same-sex marriage. However, in a non-shocking yet still annoying development in the world of GOP political game-playing, Crist yesterday told the media that he does, in fact, support Amendment Two, the statewide attempt to constitutionally ban 'mo marriage in the Sunshine State:

Crist says he'll support 'tax swap' vote in November (marriage part comes at the end) [Star-Banner]

And just so he could piss off both the politically-minded and the salon-minded gays, Crist made these comments at a scheduled media appearance wherein he reportedly received "an $11 hair cut."

But why not? After all, he was already cheaply cutting his grayness -- why not cheaply cut gayness at the very same time.

***UPDATE: We're now hearing chatter that the Star-Banner report is erroneous, and Crist never changed his "live and let live" position. We'll let you know when we learn more.

**UPDATE, 8/8: Nope, it's not erroneous:

It's official: Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorses marriage amendment [PHB]
