Red State: Charlie Crist would be worse than John McCain

Erick Erickson at Red State. Two concepts that put Charlie Crist at least 2 miles behind other sprinters in the 100 meter dash:

I have no doubt Charlie Crist wants to run for President of the United States. The guy would be worse than John McCain.

Multiple people tell me that Mel Martinez contemplated leaving his seat early, but Crist talked him out of it because Crist thought he’d be under too much pressure to appoint Jeb Bush to the seat.

.... It is incumbent on conservatives to begin now building up a great storehouse of Crist anecdotes showing how terrible he is so that he’s radioactive by 2012.

He would be wholly unacceptable as a Presidential nominee for the GOP.

(ea) Yes, the radioactive Crist has approval ratings of 67% in the most important 2012 battleground.

Wholly unacceptable.
