    Florida GOP officials took down an oil portrait of Gov. Charlie Crist just hours after the governor they helped elect dumped the Republican Party to announce he would run for the U.S. Senate as an independent, senior staff members told Fox News.
    State party officials, who have removed any likeness of Crist, are auctioning the portrait they purchased for its headquarters in Tallahassee on eBay. Party officials say they paid $7,500 for the Crist portrait and another painting.

    I hear Rahm Emanuel is the top bidder for Crist so far. Fuck the portrait, the Dems are bidding for the guy just like they used to

    One of these days the far right is going to figure out that eating their own is not healthy.

    Crist is like Jake Starkey, he's not one of "my own" and I think that the first call he made was to Rahm Emanuel highlights that very clearly

    We tried Juan McCain Dubya and Squishy NeoCom Statists, how'd that work out for us?

    The far left is just as guilty. Anytime that anyone reaches across the aisle in order to actually get something done, they are immediately vilified for it. Crist accepted federal money to help his state out. The only problem that the Tea Party candidate had with it is that it came from Obama. The hate that these people have for the President will destroy the GOP.

    I'm not sure why anyone is surprised by this. Crist is running against his own party. He ran and lost fair and square in the primary, now he is actively trying to defeat the candidate whom Republicans choose.

    Why would we expect Republicans not to be pissed at Crist?

    It was a pretty dirty campaign against him. Not that much different than Lieberman. Lots of stuff got blown out of proportions. I find it funny that nobody is asking how many Florida jobs were saved by Crist accepting the stimulus money.
