Humorist Dave Barry dropped by the NOW with Alex Wagner panel set Thursday to discuss life, politics, Florida, and the world's obsession with tweeting.
The Pulitzer prize-winning columnist was promoting his new book "Insane City," about a 'Hangover'-esque pre-wedding romp in Miami which sees protagonist Seth Weinstein and his "Groom Posse" come into contact with strippers, Haitian refugees, a man with an 11-foot albino python and an orangutan named Trevor.
