Thus Endeth the Republican Convention: The Best of Our Miami Sister Paper's Coverage

Florida has survived the 2012 Republican National Convention, which perhaps should not surprise too many people because Florida has always shown a knack for surviving whatever gets thrown at it.

Even if it's Clint Eastwood arguing with a chair.

The RNC was in Tampa, but our sister paper Miami New Times led the coverage for us; here are some highlights to peruse as you get ready for the Democrats to invade your consciousness:

We talked with Judge Will Matthews from Dothan, Alabama about Marco Rubio, legalizing drugs and Romney's (apparently slim) chances.

Victor Gonzalez got a close-up take on Eastwood's bizarre chair debate.

Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann talked cake, on video.

We spoke with Geraldo Rivera (video) because, well, someone had to.

And we followed the Ron Paul mini-revolt, such as it was.
