Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

National Review, a serious political journal of wingnuttery, which has recently featured Carrie Prejean and a Buddha-fied Sonia Sotomayor with the words "Wise Latina" on its cover has chosen Marco Rubio as its next coverboy. 

Why don't they proclaim Rubio the "Wise Latino"? I guess because they make only sorta-racist covers when they write about those on the left. 

The Orlando Sentinel's political blog has an excerpt. It declares Charlie Crist is "one of the most liberal politicians in the Republican firmament," and it's one of those misinformed fantasy pieces about how the 2010  Republican Senate primary is a battle for the heart and soul of the national party and not, you know, Florida Republicans picking which candidate they think best reflects their values and has the skills and relevant experience to do a decent job in D.C. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
