Former Republican-turned-Independent-turned Democrat, Charlie Crist, has just come out with his highly anticipated book titled, “The Party’s Over: How The Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat,” in which he explains how his political evolution came about, or how he flip-flopped on issues, and then political parties.
Like all politicians looking to make a buck, Crist’s book release is timed so he can maximize book sales during his current gubernatorial election.
The book is an interesting read, especially when the “tanned man” takes swipes at his 2014 Republican gubernatorial opponent, Rick Scott.
You know Crist was going to go after Scott, considering that he needs to do all he can to marginalize Scott to potential donors and voters.
But in my opinion, the far the best part of the book comes on page 165, where Crist acknowledges conservatives, like me, my friends Jim Hoft, Michelle Malkin, Andrew Breitbart, and Tea Party groups who were eventually responsible for his demise in his failed 2010 U.S. Senate race against Senator Marco Rubio.
I noticed, conservative bloggers played a vital role getting the anti-Obama message out.
