The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Florida Governor Charlie Crist. He gets the award for announcing he will seek election to the Senate as a independent. This after months of denying he would run as anything but a Republican.
Watch this You Tube video.
Crist said not once but three times that he is a Republican. When Chris Wallace of Fox News asked if he would back the winner of the GOP primary if it was Rubio, Crist said 'that's right'.
That interview was taped barely a month ago on March 28th. WPEC Channel 12 asked Crist two weeks ago if planned to run as a Republican, and the Governor said yes then too.
Crist knows he has little support. His staff has just defected and his money is drying up too. He can't beat Rubio, so he plans to sabotage the November election. Crist isn't running to help the people of Florida(He's been running for another office almost all the time he's been in the Governor's mansion. First angling to be the Vice President nominee, then for the Senate) but to satisfy his ego. If his needs can't be satisfied, then to hell with everyone.
I no problem naming Florida Governor Charlie Crist today's Knucklehead of the Day.
