Florida governor Charlie Crist, a moderate Republican, has announced that he is running for reelection as  an independent. He is seen by many as “the other John McCain” for not being too conservative.

Crist’s support for the Obama economic stimulus has cost him support within the Republican party. There is a war between the conservative and moderate Republicans. For sure, Crist’s move gives him a better chance to be reelected. Still, the conservatives did not miss the opportunity to criticize his move. As the Merina of Madagascar say, “In a fight with a fool it’s a wise man who quits.”
