You Can’t Fire Me - I Quit!

Sen. Mel Martinez (R-FL) is so ridiculously unpopular that he’s ready to quit his job. The idea that he could win re-election in 2010 is a joke, so apparently Martinez is going to be beat voters to the punch. He’ll resign now so that Republican Governor Charlie Crist can appoint a replacement to run as an incumbent in 2010.

Remember, Martinez is the same guy Bush named as head of the Republican Party but got the boot after only 10 months at the job. Heck of a job, Marty!

Update: During the official announcement today, Martinez made no mention of leaving office early – only that he won’t seek re-election. We’ll have to wait and see if that was just a baseless rumor or a trial balloon.
