Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011, who ran for the U.S. Senate from that state as an independent in 2010 and was subsequently throttled by Marco Rubio, has decided to formally join the Democratic Party three months after having spoken at the Democratic National Convention on behalf of President Barack Obama’s re-election.  From the Associated Press:

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was elected as the state’s chief executive as a Republican and then ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent, announced on Twitter on Friday night that he’s switching to the Democratic Party.

Crist sent out a Tweet that said, “Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President (at)Barack Obama!”

The Tweet included a photo of a smiling Crist and an unidentified woman as he held up a Florida voter registration application. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Crist signed the papers changing his affiliation from independent to Democrat at a Christmas reception at The White House.

There is rampant speculation that Crist may run for a second term as governor in 2014 as a Democrat, challenging the Republican incumbent, Gov. Rick Scott.  Any Floridians daft enough to be considering voting for former Gov. Crist might want to consider H.L. Mencken’s wise words from many decades ago: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

    Don’t care what he does. Life’s too short to waste time fretting over a schizophrenic state like FL.

    There’s a bigger problem that needs to be taken care of – reclaiming the Republican Party from the scumbag squishes and gentry GOP-types that have hijacked it, or destroying it and replacing it with an actual conservative party.

  11. ya’ gotta say it with the hand and arm gesture that matches, “…good and hard.”

  12. I heard Crist is one of those old white dudes who services Hussein.
