Early Monday morning two strange subcultures converged at Jerry's Famous Deli in Miami Beach.
At 4 a.m. MSNBC's political talk show, Morning Joe, was setting up to broadcast live ahead of the Florida Primary.

Morning Joe's typical fans clustered behind the set, listening politely but also craning their necks to leer at loud club-goers at nearby tables.
Rep. Illeana Ros-Lehtinen and Miami Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson appeared as show guests, as did columnist Dave Barry. Touting his new political satire Lunatics, Barry launched into classic stories of how weird and violent Miami is before taking a few jabs at the city's lack of civic engagement:
