Former Florida governor Charlie Crist, still suffering from butthurt after his defeat by Marco Rubio, has decided to follow his conscience and become a Democrat. Bye. The real issue is why John Cornyn/s NRSC endorsed him for Senate and why, given the pattern of behavior, that any self proclaimed moderate is endorsed for anything.
Crist has acted exactly the way that self proclaimed moderates within the Republican party typically act. They are willing to be Republicans until they lose a primary challenge and then they quit because “the Republican party left me.” It also goes to the utter lack of principle that permeates many of our political organization.
