Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Crist announcing today that he plans on leaving GOP to run as…Independent or Democrat?

Most speculation is that Governor Oompa Loompa will run as an independent, bolting from the party to which he’s belonged his whole life on account of getting his clock cleaned by upstart Tea Party fave Marco Rubio.  But maybe Crist is thinking about running as a Democrat?  Details:

Marc Ambinder reports:

Charlie Crist, soon to be independent Senate candidate from Florida, tried to reach White House chief of staff Emanuel through intermediates. WH refuses to take the call. Dems plan big talent/money blitz for Kendrick Meek.

What’s Crist up to? Might he be interested in cutting a deal to caucus with the Democrats if they chase Meek from the field?

Who knows? But the most plausible path to victory for Crist is if Meek backs him. That’s a real possibility, I think, later in the game if Rubio and Crist are each getting about 40% in the polls and Meek is getting about 20%. But, as voters get to know the lesser-known Rubio and Meek, it’s probably more likely they emerge as the frontrunners and Crist fades as election day approaches.

And then does Crist throw his support to Meek in hopes of getting a nice ambassadorship? Again, who knows? In a three-way race things could get a little crazy (maybe starting with the speculation about how crazy things could get).

Crist is dripping with desperation.  He is going all out and for broke.  If he doesn’t win this Senate race, his once-promising career is deader than Ted Kennedy. (Sidebar: Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.)
