Are you serious, Chuck?

Earlier this week we posed this question:  Will Charlie Crist Pick His Poker Buddy?

The post was more of a joke than anything else.  We even suggested other front runners included:

His favorite cashier at Piggly Wiggly
Mickey Mouse
The next person that walks into his office and says "hello"

Fast forward a couple of days:

In news that comes as no surprise to people who no longer have faith in politicians, we just learned that Charlie Crist actually did pick his poker buddy and former COS to be the next seat warmer Senator from FL.  [so much for qualified]

First Read has confirmed that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R) has chosen George LeMieux to fill Mel Martinez’s (R) Senate seat.

The pick of LeMieux — who had formerly served as Crist’s campaign manager in 2006 and then Crist’s chief of staff — is the clearest sign yet that this person would be a caretaker of the Senate seat, which Crist is running for next year.

It’s no wonder people have lost faith in the system.

Check please.
