Tweet of the Day, WHEN IGUANAS ATTACK edition.

Apparently the iguanas were merely stunned by this cold snap, not killed.

Snow in Tallahassee!

Alternative title: Hell, orange futures markets freeze over. Not that Tallahassee is Hell, of course.  Not even Jacksonville is Hell, although when you go there in August* you kind of get a rough approximation of the likely climate there. Still, hey, snow in Florida!

Do whatever you have to do to be safe from Hurricane Irma.

I don’t know how unusual this is, but it does not look good at all.

Tweet of the Day, A Big-Ass Alligator Deserves No Less edition.

Yup, that’s a real alligator, from the real state of Florida. Which is to say, very very far away from me and I’m all right with that.  I understand that it’s apparently an amiable sort of alligator, seeing as it walked right past a bunch of photographers who seem to have a classic GURPS Horror-style Delusion about how having a camera makes them invulnerable – but what if the alligator changes its mind?

Marco Rubio made a GREAT point about Cuba.

If Marco Rubio wins Florida after all, answers like this are going to be why.

Via John Podheretz, who is gloomier than I think he needs to be. Rubio made a really strong, really Florida-centric argument last night; and while I don’t see a path for him winning the nomination right now I do see one for him denying Donald Trump Florida’s delegates, which will be sufficient.

PS: There was more, but this is all that I really wanted to share.

My RedState post on Daniel Webster.

Found here. Short version: Rep. Daniel Webster has settled on running for re-election in FL-11. All part of the Florida redistricting dance, which is particularly complicated right now… just like normal, really.

My RedState post on Alan Grayson’s Congressional hedge fund.

Found here.  Short version: Alan Grayson was actually managing a hedge fund while in office. And he still doesn’t understand why his own campaign staff was and is screaming at him over that.  Because, hey, Alan Grayson.

My RedState post on Patrick Murphy.

Found here. Short version: guy’s father is trying to buy him a Senate seat in Florida, just like he bought Patrick Murphy (D) a House seat.  Because ‘campaign finance reform’ does not WORK, and never has, and never WILL.

Alan ‘Birther’ Grayson thinks Ted Cruz can’t be President.

Bless his heart: “Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) says he will file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) presidential bid if Cruz wins his party’s nomination.” I forget who said this, but: having the courts go out and spank a fool over stupid stunts like this would indeed be a wonderful thing for the Republic.  Alas, it’s also a subtle indication that Alan Grayson doesn’t expect to get the Democratic nomination for Senator. Not even this man is dumb enough to pull this stunt – IN FLORIDA – if there truly was a Senate seat on the line…
