Florida’s Charlie Crist Comes Out Of The Closet…… As A Democrat!

Last night Florida’s former Governor Charlie Crist came out of the closet as Florida as he officially registered as a Democrat.   And according to Crist, it’s the GOP party’s fault he left it in the first place.

“What changed is the leadership of the Republican Party,” Crist said. “As I said at the convention, I didn’t leave the Republican Party, it left me. Whether the issue was immigration, or education, or you name it — the environment. I feel at home now.”

Crist also added “I’ve had friends for years tell me, ‘You know Charlie, you’re a Democrat and you don’t know it,”

No word about whether the friends who told him he was a “homosexual” have made any impact and that there’s any evidence of that bearded glass closet busting open soon.
