Tea party turning on Mike Haridopolos?



 That a conservative north Florida blogger (and occasional Buzz commenter) named Bloggy Bayou is trashing  Mike Haridopolos in an entry for RedState is not a major problem for the ostensible Republican U.S. Senate frontrunner. That RedState editor Erick Erickson decided to put the piece on his influential site's frontpage could be a significant problem if means Erickson and other conservative opinion leaders are writing off Haridopolos as just another phony establishment candidate. From the Bloggy Bayou (aka E. Royce White, Jr) post, which also suggests Haridopolos' hair is far too pansyish for a good Republican:


...My advice to Florida Republicans:  Do not elect this man.  His book deal stinks, all he has done in his life is run for the next highest political office and he spends way too much time on combing his hair.  Let’s face it: He belongs in the “Charlie Crist and John Edwards Hair Club For Men” school of politics. "
