    (CNN) – Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who served his state as a Republican, then sought office as an independent, indicated late Friday he had signed papers switching his party affiliation to Democrat.

    Crist posted to Twitter a photo of himself holding voter regisration paperwork and the message, "Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @BarackObama!"

    No real surprise here, hell the way he was on his knees for Maobama during the election he's more than likely bucking for an appointment as a czar or some crap like that. His unemployment check is probably not big enough.

    Get ready for more of that in the coming years as more career politicians decide that the republican party is far too hostile to their own who slip up and appear to be a rational person.

    Ya think he's positioning himself to replace Maobama in 16, I bet he is.

    No, not a chance, while the democratic party will welcome any sincere defectors it is not prepared to make one their lead man so soon, I estimate it would take such a defector at least two or three terms as a democrat in national office to wash off the stench of having been a republican.

    Good riddance, I just wish I could be there to send my size 15 eee right up his ass to accelerate his marriage to the Democrat party. Crist was never a real Repubican to begin with. However, I still have no respect for Crist, if he had any honesty in him, he would have changed his registration to the American Communist Party...well, wait, American Communist Party...Democrat Party, there is no difference.
