Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who's running for Senate as an independent, has this new ad out in which he takes individual letters from "DEMOCRATS" and "REPUBLICANS" to spell "AMERICANS," in alternating colors. How lovely! Too bad he cheats like hell.
Have you ever seen an ad that uses this gimmick before? No, you haven't, which is how you know he's cheating. Presumably some independent candidate has considered making this exact spot before, but then stopped after working it out for 20 seconds and realizing that the necessary pool of color-coded letters isn't there. "DEMOCRATS" does not have an "I" or a second "A," and "REPUBLICANS" doesn't have an "M," making Crist's red-and-blue combination of "AMERICANS" a colossal joke of public policy. This sort of cheating is unacceptable to Florida's several literate, non-colorblind voters.
Charlie Crist is a monster.
