Winner and loser: Kreegel and the 'Maestro'



Time for another installment of the Buzz's Winner and Loser of the week:

Winner: State Rep. Paige Kreegel, R-Punta Gorda, earned lots of lousy publicity over revelations that his taxpayer-funded office was trashing a political rival. But a state House panel did not find probable cause Kreegel had done anything illegal.

Loser: George LeMieux may have proved his political mega chops leading Charlie Crist's gubernatorial campaign, but the Buzz all over Tallahassee last week was about LeMieux's shifty eyes, stiffness and overall painful performance as a pundit on MSNBC's Hardball last week. Charlie, give your maestro some TV tips.
