2012 in Weird Florida Politics: Part One of the WTF Florida Awards
Sometimes political stories in Florida are simply too weird to categorize. Spray tan gate? Skrawberry and Tip Drill's prognostications? The nominees:
- Mitt Romney for his alleged spray tan at the University of Miami
- Strippers Tip Drill and Skrawberry for Crashing the set of MSNBS's Morning Joe
- Clint Eastwood for talking to an empty chair at the RNC in Tampa
- State Rep. Rachel Burgin busted for trying to turn a lobbyist group's mission statement into law
Really, how could this award not go to Clint's empty chair speech up in Tampa? While the whole Republican National Convention may have been a bit of a mess, nothing really equaled this moment.
