Marco Rubio, Commoner
Fresh off their shocking revelation that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% drives himself around like some peasant, getting speeding tickets in the process, the NYT is back at it again. The latest broadside against Rubio reveals – shockingly – that Rubio has struggled to pay his bills just like some regular old, non-1%er American: WEST MIAMI, Fla. — For years, Senator [mc_name | Read More »
NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo.
The New York Times is being fed stories by American Bridge. …Yes, I know. It’s like catching your aunt picking her nose.

Marco Rubio Will Join Us At the RedState Gathering
I should have put this in the announcement the other day. But apparently, for reasons I cannot fathom, Apple’s iCloud decided to start sending stuff to a junk folder even though I don’t want it to. And there I found an email from Rubio’s team from last week saying he would be at the RedState Gathering. So that’s awesome. Rubio was the first Senate candidate | Read More »
GOP Failure Theater: the Iran nuclear vote, Cruz-Rubio edition
Failure Theater. When the GOP talks a good game about opposing Obama’s policies but, in fact, vote to go along with them. Yesterday the US Senate voted 98-1 to go along with whatever Barack Obama decides to give to Iran. Though the feckless Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46% has portrayed it as a successful “bipartisan” bill, part of [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch McConnell | Read More »
Cotton and Rubio on verge of scuttling Corker’s Iran surrender bill
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46% has been working hand-in-glove with Maryland Senator Ben Cardin to shepherd a disastrous bill approving Obama’s Iran negotiations through the Senate. It is disastrous in two respects. First and foremost, Corker’s bill essentially gives Obama a way to work around the US Constitution. Instead of this agreement being presented to the Senate for approval… and as | Read More »
Rubio vs. The Field
In sports, whenever there is a prohibitive favorite that has to compete against a crowded field (especially in sports where the outcome is hard to predict), a popular game sports talkers like to play is to play “Prohibitive favorite vs. the field – who would you pick?” For example, in the NCAA basketball tournament this year, Kentucky was a roughly even bet to win the | Read More »
Should a GOP presidential candidate attend a homosexual wedding?
There has been a garden industry erupting among GOP presidential contenders over whether or not they would attend a homosexual wedding… as a guest. Scott Walker (via CNN) “Even though my position on marriage is still that its defined as between a man and a woman, and I support the constitution of the state but for someone I love, we’ve been to a reception,” he | Read More »
Cruz, Paul, Walker, Rubio, Perry, Jindal, and Bush Walk Into a Ballroom
There are going to be lots of corrals to meet the Presidential candidates. That’s the nature of it. They march in, they give speeches, and they leave. In many of these events, if you pay extra, you get closer. You may pay even more and get a photo opportunity. Good luck getting a question answered. That was one reason I wanted the RedState Gathering to | Read More »
Democrats, the Party of Jim Crow, Want Their “House Rubio” to Fetch Them Water
The Democratic Party has decided it is okay to let out their inner racist against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%. The New Yorker referred to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% as “uppity” and MSNBC referred to Rubio as “boy.” Now the DNC has prepared a set of graphics about Rubio | Read More »
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% remains a conservative favorite in 2016. In 2012, the establishment backed his Senate opponent in Texas, then Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. The conservative grassroots backed Cruz and pushed him over the finish line. Cruz has since remained a favorite of the grassroots with a continually antagonist relationship with the Republican establishment. In 2010, [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul | Read More »
Tired of It Already
I have to confess something. We are 48 hours removed from finally having one Republican Presidential candidate and I am already tired of 2016. Heck, I was tired of it before Cruz declared. Somewhat ironic to say given that I make a living on the internet, but I am more and more convinced the internet and, particularly, social media is a bad thing. It fosters | Read More »
The Fair and Relevant Question
With Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% beginning his run for the Presidency today, I should make public the question I’ve suggested to reporters in private. Senator Cruz is for certain going to be joined by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87%, who will announce in a few weeks. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, who I think is | Read More »
Re Mandatory Voting: Just How Much Can They Make Us Care?
Let’s Make These Guys Vote! Can the government make me care? No. But they can darn sure make you act like it. How so, you may ask? America is a free country? Only because our current indebtedness vastly exceeds anything we could claim as equity. You are not free. That died when the Obamacare Individual Mandate was ruled constitutional by Chief | Read More »
Marco Rubio Recounts The History of Obama’s Treatment of Israel
There are three central and related themes to the Obama Administration’s foreign policy. First is a persistent refusal to draw distinctions between U.S. allies and U.S. enemies. Second, which follows logically from the first, is something akin to an allergy to pursuing American victories that result in the defeat of our enemies. And third is the striking contrast this approach presents to President Obama’s Manichean | Read More »
@POLITICO goes on Hillary Clinton’s payroll
This is outrageous stunning campaign ending a nothingburger: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%’s house of horrors. It is also a sign that a) the Hillary Clinton campaign is taking Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% seriously, b) that POLITICO is seriously in the bag for Hillary (we’ve sort of known that since they proclaimed her violating federal law as “badass”), and | Read More »
