Wow, Republicans love to lose. Just love love love it. There’s no other explanation for Charlie Crist’s decision to run as an Independent for the Senate.

Oh, and while Marco Rubio will probably win even in a three-way race, the Republicans’ expected eight-seat Senate gain just got tougher to achieve.

Because Republicans love to lose. Just ask Charlie Crist.
