CHARLIE CRIST WREAKS POLITICAL MAYHEM: “Since that casual May 2009 e-mail announcing your candidacy for U.S. Senate, you’ve ripped apart the Florida GOP, and now it’s dividing Florida Democrats. You’ve gone from national superstar and future presidential contender to someone banished from your lifelong party and fighting for political survival. Not to mention the trickle-down effect: Republican fixture Bill McCollum, poised to breeze into a second term as attorney general, is now through in politics; probably so is your lieutenant governor, Jeff Kottkamp; Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, the state Democratic Party’s great hope, skipped reelection and is locked in an ugly, neck-and-neck race for governor against a controversial businessman no one had heard of nine months ago.”
