Charlie's FCAT Problem



The Democratic Party is flogging Charlie Crist for calling himself a "visionary" while muffing some basic facts about FCAT in an interview with the Palm Beach Post editorial board. The Post reported Thursday that Crist said it might be a good idea to give the FCAT test at a different time but he didn't know when students take it now (February or March) or what constitutes a passing score (a 3 or 3.5).

"Earth to Crist," the Dems' e-mail blast said. "Lack of basic state knowledge doesn't make you a visionary."
