Tea Party takes delight in Miami-Dade tumult

PajamasMedia Tatler asks: "Has South Beach gone Tea Party?"

Noting that Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez is out of a job with voters recalling him over tax increases and employee pay increases, the site notes:

"Folks, Alvarez didn’t get the boot in some tinpot Tea Party town in up the Florida panhandle. This is Miami-Dade, where President Obama won 58.1% of the vote in 2008. This is Miami-Dade, home of the super-liberal congresscritter Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This is Miami-Dade, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by almost 50%.

If that’s the public mood in Florida, I can’t wait to see what happens in Wisconsin."
