...trying to deal with a "non"-Republican.
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know that I hold little regard for the Democrats who have attempted to demonize Sen. Joe Lieberman. Now, I don't think Lieberman has always been a straight-shooter with the Democratic Party, but the attempt to ostracize him has come with a cost.
The Republican Party could have its own "Lieberman problem" as Florida's Charlie Crist determines whether he will bolt his party and run as an independent U.S. Senate candidate.
Crist's decision would be a result of a Tea Party in Florida that continues to make loud noises while attempting to upset the political establishment. Such activists -- small in number and frankly worthy of national attention for reasons that confuse me -- are seen in many states, and they appear to be influencing the decisions of prominent Republicans in various states.
Politics does make for strange bedfellows.
