Independent's Day

Well, many folks have been saying this for sometime, the Great Orange Satan from his great orange lair comes to mind, but it is being reported Charlie Christ is about to go all 'independent' down in Florida.

Reliable sources informed me today that embattled Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, whose early lead in his US Senate Republican primary race against former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio has essentially reversed itself in the polls, is preparing to announce sooner rather than later that he will leave the GOP and continue his run for Senate as an independent.

Leaving Marco Rubio to surround himself with an crazier GOP base (and a few Internal Revenue agents). With his Party credit card being put on hold, I understand that Rubio is attempting to buy Crist off the new/old fangled, Republican-way -- and that's going to take a KFC-sized load of chickens (maybe a few of those new non-sandwiches too).

Maybe Kendrick Meek will toss in a few to help Charlie fly the coop?

If Crist does run as an independent, I wonder if he'll take tips from Joe Lieberman on how to do it....

I never heard of Meeks so I watched the ad hoping for more Dr. Turk snark. Watched the whole boring thing. Never once does he mention his political party. I could do a far better job.

Christ, will Crist just Do It? And join the rather considerable list of republicans who have bolted while in office, come out of the closet or gone to prison?
Specter, Jeffords, the senator from Rhode Island, the guv of Illinois, Ryan, wish I could remember or consult somewhere for more names..vox
