Only in Miami

GOP Congressional candidate and state legislator David Rivera, a fully reliable gonzo hardliner on Cuba issues, has a friend who does business with Cuba, so he’s now in an “awkward spot,” the Herald reports.

This part of the article is delicious:

Said Mary Ellen Miller, former Miami-Dade Republican Party chairwoman: “I know Ariel and I know David and they are friends. They’ve been friends probably since they got involved in Republican politics.” (Two days after her comment, Miller said she had gotten a call “from a friend” she declined to identify and wanted to change her statement to deny the two men had ever been friends.)

Apparently, “We’re friends but we don’t agree on everything” doesn’t cut it on this issue, in that corner of America.
