Charlie Crist has chosen leftist Anita Dunn’s company, SKD Knickerbocker, as his new media consultant. The same Anita Dunn who said her favorite philosopher was Mao Tse-tung.

Via the NY Post:

SKDKnickerbocker, a leading Democratic political strategy and communications firm, has agreed to work on Crist’s up-hill campaign as an independent for the U.S. Senate.

The decision will be widely viewed as a slap at Democratic frontrunner Rep. Kendrick Meek, who is trailing badly in the polls and many Democrats believe is hopeless for winning in November.

Making it all the more ominous for Meek is that SKDKnickerbocker is helmed by Anita Dunn, who most recently served as senior advisor to President Obama and is one of the administration’s most valued political operators outside the White House.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, “SKD Knickerbocker predominantly works with Democrats, including President Barack Obama and Sens. Sherrod Brown, Evan Bayh, Jim Webb and Jay Rockefeller.” They also represented fake-independents like Joe Lieberman and Michael Bloomberg. So, Charlie-chameleon Crist will feel right at home.

Roll Call reports that Charlie Crist’s media campaign will be led by Josh Isay, the former chief of staff for super-leftist Schumer (D-NY).
