The South Florida blogosphere was buzzing with activity last night. That, of course, means more for you to read in your morning Sift. Enjoy.
A- The Burger Beast has a little more info on the highly anticipated Frita Shop.
Frita Shop made its “unofficial” debut at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting Village event on Saturday afternoon. Their Kimchee Frita (Kimchee, Sriracha Ketchup, Cilantro, Onion on Potato Bun) was handed out to the masses, more than half of which probably have no clue what a Frita is.B- Searching for Signs believes the problem with Rick Santorum is that he's just too honest and lacks tact when he's hating on JFK and claiming that colleges provide a liberal indoctrination.
Santorum is an honest, straight-up man who speaks his convictions and answers the hard questions thrown at him. Those are admirable traits, when applied correctly. The problem with Santorum is that in his honesty, he sometimes goes overboard and lacks tact. He believes in all the right things, but he has trouble channeling his righteous indignation in a way that isn’t condescending or overblown.C- Man or Maniac? disassembles the latest from those on the Right who still believe that Obama was not born in the United States.
D- Miami Condo Investments shows us what $300K can get you on Brickell these days...and it doesn't include much closet space.
Our listing is for a 1 bedroom/1.5 bath bi-level loft with 993 square feet of interior and a 76 square foot balcony off the living room. The asking price is $297,888, or $300 per square foot, making it the lowest price per square foot unit currently available for sale on the MLS or through the developer. The decorator-ready unit comes with stainless steel appliances, a stackable washer/dryer and one assigned parking space. The east-facing loft has a view of Biscayne Bay and the Brickell skyline from the 30th floor.E- Obalesque has his own opinion of Rick Santorum, as you might imagine.
That heads all over the nation didn’t explode after Santorum’s remark reveals just how crazed and extreme this ‘Pub dog race has become. The firewall between church and state in this country not only protects the citizens from religious oppression, it makes the practice of religion possible.F- The Miami Bike Scene links to some Critical Mass photos around the blogosphere and posts a video.
Doesn’t everybody with a high school education understand this?
G- A relatively reasonable conservative is just now getting worried that the Republican Party has morphed into some kind of clown car and Bark Bark Woof Woof unloads on him.
He's worried about honor in a party that re-elected a felon in 1972, sold weapons to a sworn enemy and used the proceeds to back Central American terrorists, impeached a Democratic president for getting an adulterous blowjob while at the same time the chief accuser was getting his own horn honked by a woman not yet his wife, elected a president by constitutional legerdemain that doesn't pass the laugh test, outed a CIA operative for political revenge, and cheered on a racially-tinged rabble of white patriarchal know-nothing moochers whose mantra of ignorance became a frothy mix of blind hatred and xenophobia against a centrist Democratic president who happened to be black.
