Drunk Miami Republicans Rally For Santorum and Rick Scott

Alcohol impairs your judgment? Screw it, we'll have a shot of whiskey, a beer, and a Latin Builders Association membership application.

Starting early Friday morning in downtown Miami, the LBA invited guests to drink their way to Decision 2012, offering 2 cocktail sessions between speeches by Newt Gingrich, Gov. Rick Scott, and Rick Santorum. Mitt "The Muppet" Romney may be soaring in the Florida polls, but Santorum garnered the powerful Hispanic bloc's endorsement for GOP presidential candidate.



We got ourselves into the party and asked the people important questions like what they were drinking, and what they thought about Newt Gingrich's ambitious moon colonization program.


We also caught Florida Gov. Rick Scott making weird faces. Scott dropped by to stick his tongue out at the table, during a prayer.

He also gave a quick speech encouraging constituents to contact his office directly with questions, comments, and suggestions while we grubbed on the free Hilton salad, chicken cordon bleu, and slice of chocolate cake.

Next up came Rick Santorum, who delivered a surprisingly powerful speech about his dad working the Pennsylvania coal fields till he was 72. Then he smashed all that blue collar rhetoric with his personal traveling makeup assistant. That's a campaign volunteer hooking him up seconds before a live CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer.

All in all, we learned Republicans like to party, the Latin Builders Association throws a good one, Rick Scott commands attention, and Rick Santorum wears makeup.
