Rubio leads Crist 60-28 and Crist harps about a back wax

Talk about being beaten like a rented mule. The numbers against Crist are staggering. 
From Public Policy Polling: Rubio now leads Crist 60-28, including a staggering 71-17 lead with conservatives. Crist has a 49-36 advantage with party moderates, but they account for just 31% of likely primary voters compared to 65% who describe themselves as conservative. 
Rubio is benefiting from a widely held sentiment among Florida GOP voters that Congressional Republicans are too liberal and that Crist would add to the problem. 41% of them think that the party leadership in Washington is too liberal, and with those folks Rubio holds an 83-10 lead. 50% think that Crist himself is too liberal and with those voters Rubio's advantage expands even wider to 90-5.
It also looks like it's too late for Crist to audible and make another run for Governor. GOP voters say they'd prefer likely nominee Bill McCollum over Crist by a 49-35 margin. In fact Republicans generally just want Crist to go away- 56% say they'd like him out of office a year from now to 19% who'd like to see him continue as Governor and only 14% who want him in the Senate.[MORE] 

With numbers like these is it any wonder that Charlie Crist is now scrapping the bottom of the barrel with his attacks?  Check this out this exchange between Greta Van Susteren and Crist [emphasis mine] 
CRIST: Because he's trying to pawn himself off as a fiscal conservative. And yet just in reason weeks, two weeks ago it has come out in news accounts he had a Republican Party of Florida credit card that he charged $130 haircut, or maybe it was a back wax -- we are not sure what all he got at that place.
VAN SUSTEREN: Wait a second, stop. A back wax? Wait a second.
CRIST: I don't know what it was, you know?
VAN SUSTEREN: I know, but was there a suggestion it was for a back wax or are you being flip?
CRIST: I don't know what it was. Initially we were told it was a haircut. And then he said it wasn't a haircut. Then he had the gall to go on Neil Cavuto's show and said it was his money. It was a credit card from the Republican Party. It was party donors' money.
The detachment from reality is stunning to me. And to try to say that you're a fiscal conservative, yet you spend $130 for maybe a haircut and maybe other things, I don't know what you do at a salon we you are a guy.
I get my haircut for $11 from a guy named Carl the Barber in St. Petersburg, Florida where I grew up. And to me that's real fiscal conservatism...
That is a pretty funny thing for Crist to say when there is a long-standing rumor that he is gay and he tans himself until he looks like a Butterball on Thanksgiving.  Well, as the saying goes, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Ha ha! In that pic he certainly looks like a crispy critter, doesn't he? The George Hamilton look went out in the 80's, right? Major fashion misdemeanor, so not fly. FAIL!

Crist is acting like a whiny little girlie man. November can't get here soon enough.

This reeks of desperation. As well as a major character flaw on Crist's part. Here's hoping it blows up in his face.

Crispy Critter! He most certainly does. He kind of reminds me of a piece of overdone bacon.

I think he is acting like a sore loser.

For Crist to fall behind Rubio by 32 points, I think it has already blown up in his face.

Hmmm, it doesn't appear that the former governor of Fl has anything good to say about Christ, either.

I read the other day that the NRSC is still secretly helping Crist! How stupid is that?
