Big doings downtown today as Gov. Charlie â??Choo-Chooâ?� Crist made a stop to celebrate the wonder that is going to be commuter rail. Platitudes fell from lips, onlookers looked on politely, hands got shaken, Buddy Dyer made a reference to the â??rail renaissance,â?� photos were snapped and nothing really happened of any importance at all. The only thing that kept this one from being a total snoozer was the presence of a handful of folks waiving delicious-looking waffles and other breakfast foods, a reference to the non-starter that is â??Wafflegate.â?� If you donâ??t already know, Wafflegate is the huge den of corruption teabaggers are holding on to as their last shred of hope to derail SunRail. Itâ??s three e-mails with funny titles. Outrage springs eternal.
