Pundits already have exhausted themselves discussing Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s announcement yesterday to run for U.S. Senate as an independent (Larry Thornberry has a good analysis up at the main site). I won’t add to the maelstrom aside from this tidbit.
Near the end of his self-serving, egomaniacal speech, Crist gave this odd nugget — so odd that I’ve never heard another politician use it (emphasis mine):
I’m counting on you, and I believe in you. And you can believe in me, and I’ll be with you forever. Forever.
Who, exactly, does Crist think he is?
