Is Charlie going Indie?

From the Sun Sentinel:

Will Charlie Crist ditch the GOP for the U.S.Senate?

Two highly placed and independent sources, speaking strictly on background, tell me that Gov. Charlie Crist is preparing to leave the Republican Party and run as an independent in the race for the U.S. Senate.

With Crist trailing Marco Rubio by 18 points in the latest polls, the Crist campaign has been in panic mode, launching attack after attack on the conservative Rubio.

Yesterday, the attacks reached a crescendo with the Crist campaign, and/or his disgraced Republican Party of Florida thug bootlickers, leaking Rubio's credit card expenses from his time as speaker of the Florida House.

According to published reports, the former RPOF chair, the bovine bully-boy buffoon Jim Greer, spent more in a month than Rubio did in his entire two years as state House speaker. If all the Crist campaign has on Rubio is $53.49 at Winn-Dixie in Miami for ``food” and a couple of plane tickets for his wife, then it's game, set and match, as far as the Republican primary for Senate is concerned.

From what's been made public, Rubio's credit card expenses make him the most frugal of the Republican leaders with RPOF credit cards.
Charlie Crist is a political opportunist who left the principals of the Republican party behind a long time ago, assuming he ever really embraced them to begin with.  He can't win the Republican primary on merit so he is stooping to a smear campaign against Rubio.  Problem is, there is nothing to smear and Crist has only succeeded in making himself look puny, pathetic and if possible, more desperate than usual.

Leave the Republican party, Charlie.  Don't let the door bump your ass on the way out.

So, would that mean John McCain will endorse him after all?
