Charlie Crist Keeps on Losing

What a hapless dolt.
Some days Charlie Crist is an ally of rock stars, and some days he is their adversary.

On Monday, Mr. Crist, the former governor of Florida who, before he left office, helped champion a posthumous pardon for Jim Morrison, the front man of the Doors, confirmed that he had settled a lawsuit with the singer David Byrne after using a Talking Heads song in a campaign advertisement without permission.

Mr. Crist, a Republican-turned-independent, used the song “Road to Nowhere” in an online campaign video opposing Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee who defeated Mr. Crist in November for the United States Senate. Mr. Byrne sued Mr. Crist for $1 million, saying he had not approved the use of the song; as part of a settlement, Mr. Crist has posted a YouTube video apologizing for the copyright infringement.
Road to Nowhere. How ironic.

Byrne should sue him again for some a lame job of reading the apology. I've seen hostage video look more sincere.
