Evidently we now need to apply the Regis Philbin rule to statements from our elected officials. In an MSNBC interview two weeks ago, Florida Governor and No Party Affiliated Senate Candidate Charlie Crist said he would "probably" give refunds to donors who don't approve of him leaving the GOP. Today, hours before Crist officially became "NPA" his campaign spokeswoman said there would be no such refunds. She also claimed this was not a flip-flop because, "We have never made an official statement before. It is now the official statement." (source) Is that your final answer, Mr. Crist?
