Another moderate (sane) Republican driven to abandon the GOP.
It's nearly official: Gov. Charlie Crist (R-FL) will bolt the GOP and run for Senate as an independent, the St. Petersburg Times and Fox News each report. This much-expected event will drastically shake up a top Senate race in this perennial swing state, which has become more intriguing than anybody could have imagined a year ago.
The St. Petersburg Times reports that Crist has notified key financial backers of his decision. Crist has already announced that he will make his as-yet undisclosed decision official tomorrow, one day before the April 30 filing deadline.
It's just a matter of time before all that remains of the party of Lincoln will be Teabaggers, Birthers, John Birchers, war loving Neo-cons, Christian-Taliban end timers, secessionists, racists and gun goons.
Actually, now that I've pondered it for all of 5 seconds, they may have reached that nadir of political and cultural irrelevancy already.
