House GOP leader asks Crist

House GOP leader Adam Hasner called on Gov. Charlie Crist to apologize for his remark toward the Legislature at a Jacksonville campaign stop where he said "Who's running the asylum?"

"His comments were completely inappropriate and I think he should apologize ... to Speaker Cretul and President Atwater," Hasner said Tuesday. He said the governor is taking part in the "politics of personal destruction" that he often laments.

The Democrats -- content to watch the GOP blast each other -- didn't agree. "I think Charlie probably wishes he hadn’t have quite put it that way,” said Rep. Ron Saunders, a Democratic House leader. “We disagree with the process too, but we haven’t quite got to the point of calling it an asylum. A circus, maybe, but not an
asylum.”

Thank the Lord for Governor Crist. In my civilian life, I serve as pastor of C R (Jacksonville) and this muti-ethnic body loves the Governor :) God bless you Governor...in Jesus name!

Well, maybe first Mr. Hasner should answer Mr. Crist's question.
