Good stuff. Hopefully, Florida swings back to the GOP in 2012.

Lots of fun in store on the Florida Suncoast's white sand beaches for the Palin family. Great photo ops!

Yeah, when is it? Late August would be a little chancy.

Maybe McLame should have made a personal appeal.

Good choice - This way Allen West can accept the nomination is his home state!

Phoenix has some great T*ttie bars too. At least they did when I lived there.

From what they tell me, Tampa needs the business.

I guarantee Florida goes red with the next election.

The Yankees who turned it blue failed collectively and individually in Florida are now coming to North Carolina by the thousands...to just fail here. We call them “halfbacks”: they fail in Florida, then go halfway back to fail here.

The overwhelming number of them suffer from Adoration of the Black Messiah, which will be a recognized mental disorder in the DSM IV in a few years.

I agree... Should have been Phoenix and they should have invited 1070 legal immigrants to attend.

Wild horses couldn’t drag me to any political party’s convention, unless the horses were in harness and hitched to a limbered caisson, and I knew friends were meeting me there with balls, canister, and black powder.

Have you been in Phoenix in late August — it is way too hot for most people.

Tampa is a much better place to host and they have lost out twice already so it is their turn.

RNC head doesn’t choose the location, the full committee does and Tampa was way ahead of AZ and UT for months long before immigration which is the ONLY reason some of you wanted AZ.

We need FL back red and this should do it.

The dome is in downtown St. Pete, across the Bay from us. As for hurricanes, we haven’t had one here in Tampa since 1928, so depending on how you look at it, we’re either immune to them now, or we’re long overdue!

see if they came back to NY there aren’t any vice places (like there used to be) since Giuliani shut them down years go. They could still get drunk as hell anywhere, though.
