What Would Charlie Do?

Apparently if the choice is between doing the right thing for his party and his state or throwing everyone under the bus for the sake of his ego, Charlie Crist has with all due reflection decided to screw the pooch. 

Doug Ross:

The unshakable core beliefs of Arlen Crist

Asked five times last month by Chris Wallace whether he would run as an independent for the U.S. Senate seat in Florida, Gov. Charlie Crist responded "no" five separate times.

Crist reaffirmed his gelatinous reputation today, with advisers informing the Wall Street Journal that he would announce he's running as an independent.

Crist doesn't have a principled bone in his body. He supported President Obama's outrageous "stimulus" package and has shifted positions on every issue imaginable.

To be fair, Crist does have one unshakable core principle. He will stop at nothing to ensure that Charlie Crist gets elected or appointed to high office.
 Yeah, I know.  I'm the idiot that held firm to belief that in the end Charlie would do the right thing.  The next question is:  Will the Dems stick with their candidate, Kendrick Meek, or toss him for Crist?  On the one hand, it was only four years ago that Dems thought that Crist was the anti-Christ but on the other, it doesn't matter, Meek sucks as a candidate. 
There is one great big bright side to all this-when Meek and Crist split the Dem vote Rubio will be elected and we will never have to look at Crist again. Come on, November!
