Stephen Colbert Warns Charlie Crist That Rick Scott Is a "Swamp Creature"

To promote his new book, The Party's Over, and kick up buzz about his campaign for governor, Charlie Crist stopped by The Colbert Report last night. Of course, that meant some prime Rick Scott joke opportunities for Colbert, and the host asked Crist if he was afraid of Scott.

"You're not afraid that he's going to unhinge his jaw and try to swallow you?" asked Colbert. "I mean you're running against a native Florida swamp creature. That doesn't frighten you in anyway?"

Crist took the opportunity to point out that Scott is not a native Floridian and claimed he's from Texas. Scott may have spent time in Texas, but he was actually originally hatched in Bloomington, Illinois, for the record.

Colbert then goes on to poke fun at the awkward prose Crist (and his co-writer) used in the book to describe "the hug" with President Obama.

Crist later on suggested that part of the reason for the fallout from that hug was because President Obama is African-American.

Charlie Crist is such a gentleman. Much rather have him back as governor and to Rick Scott: Alpha Mike Foxtrot.
