ANOTHER SICKENING CHARLIE CRIST LIE: Republican-turned-Democrat Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist says he left the GOP because of race:
“I couldn’t be consistent with myself and my core beliefs, and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president, I’ll just go there,” Crist said. “I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing, it was intolerable to me.”
As Chris Cilliza points out in today’s Washington Post, “Um, not exactly.” Christ is pandering to his new Democrat constituency, which demands at least one prominent, public confession of guilt about racism. Crist is the epitome of what’s wrong with politics today, and Democrat politics in particular. He’s just yucky.
