Robert Kennedy, Jr. endorsed Florida Gov. Charlie Crist for U.S. Senate on Wednesday, another sign that any pretense that Charlie Crist still considers himself a Republican has been abandoned.

Speaking of GOP nominee Marco Rubio, Kennedy said, "He has a very radical vision, a very narrow vision – a very, you know, 'I can be as stupid as I want' vision."

He also referred to Tea Party members as "crackpots."

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

Wow, just the endorsement from someone who has any political clout. The Kennedy name no longer carries the weight it did in the past. Most young voters are asking themselves Kennedy, who. If this is the best Crist can do, he is in trouble.

RFK is another eletest that think everyone should make sacirfies but him. No wind turbine in his view of the sea. But it is ok to put them in anybody elses. Use more carbon powered fuel than a small city but says everyone else should cut back. Is this who you want to tell you who you should vote for and what the tea party stands for?

Funny , I don't seem to remember the Kennedy's being so agreeable when they wanted to put wind turbine 5 miles off the shoreline of their summer compound. Somebody send these elites the message ...this dynasty has already ended.

I wonder if Mr Greenie RFK Jr flew in his private jet increasing the carbon foot print. Greene technology everywhere except by the Kennedy Compound in Mass or by a Kennedy.These greenies rules only apply to us & not them.

RFK, Jr.'s endorsement means more votes for Rubio. The Kennedys should realize that their days of influence are gone except possibly in the liberal northeast and California. Moreover, his comments on the Tea Party members will only act to encourage them to work harder to elect Rubio.
