Here we go again. Another instance where I am slapped back into reality.
I heard someone say recently that a magazine had Marco Rubio, the Tea Bagging Republican senator from Florida, on the cover calling him the Republican savior. And I thought it was a joke, because of his GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech, where he did this:
Like, WHO DOES THAT??!! I’m not a public speaker, but I’ve been around television to know that when you’re giving a major speech, you don’t reach clumsily for a bottle of water that’s outside the camera’s field of vision because … well, take a look at the clip again … that’s why! That just shows the guy isn’t ready for prime time.
But I’m on mass transit this morning, and there’s a woman with a magazine in her hand, and the cover is this:
Really? Why is he the “Republican Savior?”
Because he turned water into whine.
