    Like Lieberman?

    •  Looks that way. Anyone up to date on FL law? (0+ / 0-)

      That would be SOOOO hilarious.

      And still a net win for us.

      One has to wonder if Crist would win in a 3-way contest in FL.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      Actually, I have been wondering why center-right Republicans, as opposed to the radical-right ones, haven't staked out positions as independents or third party candidates.  There is really no room in the GOP for anyone who does not get 100% on the purity test (exception that proves the rule are the Maine senators).  If Crist ran and won as an independent that would cause another tremor in the foundations of the political right - he doesn't fit in with the conservative Democrats - yet he and other ambitious politicians who can actually win general elections need a home.  Where will that home be?

      •  It's those tremors, whether Crist wins or (0+ / 0-)

        loses, that I'm hoping for.  Damage to the Republican party.  Damage to their itty-bitty tent.

        Headshrinkers.

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
