Crist taps ex-aide to replace U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez
Not bright at all.
We all know that you were picking a placeholder. We all know that the goal was to cater to one constituency or another. We all know that picking a strong voice for Florida was not the top priority.
Still, did you not think about how this would come across? Crist picks aide to fill Senate seat! Crist names loyalist to Senate! Do you really want to have charges of cronyism leveled at you?
Remember how Harriet Miers worked out for Dubya? Yeah, not a great idea to repeat that one, Chuck.
