Bill Quick finds a real gem

Crist is the bright-orange Florida politician who ran against Marco Rubio for the Republican nomination to the Senate. Crist lost the primary, and later he switched parties. He is now a Democrat, and he said this about his prior record:

Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats believe in him. “Frankly, I think I was on their side when I was in the other party,” he said as he prepared a victory speech. He said a friend once told him, “Charlie, you’ve been a Democrat your whole life, you just didn’t know it.’ Well, now I know it.”

And the Republicans wonder why their party's base is pissed at them and keeps running primary challengers?

It's not like Crist was the only person to do this, either. Arlen Specter did something very similar. Other Republicans remain within the party and vote the other way when it suits them. It adds up to a party that isn't trusted by their base.
