2. Has anyone counted the number of times he touched himself?

That was just as odd as the going for the water bottle.

He touched his chin. The side of is face. His forehead. I think even his nose, which I'm told is a gesture indicating one is lying.

6. Not Ready For Prime Time

Marco Rubio’s ‘Watershed’ Means He’s Ready (or Not) for National Spotlight

Z. Byron Wolf
Feb 13, 2013

Call it “watergate” or maybe Marco Rubio’s watershed moment. The Florida senator’s awkward sip from a water bottle in the midst of a nationally televised address Tuesday (and how he handled the aftermath) means one of two things, depending on your perspective: He’s either totally ready for the national spotlight or he needs some time to condition. And hydrate.

In the midst of the biggest political moment of his life, Rubio was visibly parched. And in front of those millions of viewers, he stopped his speech and reached for a bottle of water. These State of the Union responses can be like a national try-out for a young politician. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal was panned for a stilting delivery in 2009. His buzz quickly died down. Rep. Paul Ryan gave the response in 2012 and found himself as Mitt Romney’s running mate some months later.

Politics – especially national politics – can be about impressions and moments. And while he is today the senator from Florida, there’s little doubt Rubio, 41, has his eyes set on higher office.

---

It was a single moment in a long speech that otherwise effectively laid out Rubio’s view for how conservative, more limited government, is better for the people in his Miami neighborhood. But the moment took on a life of its own in the meme-obsessed Twitter age. There were mocking .gifs and Twitter handles like @rubioh20bottle and @gopwaterbottle and @thirstysenator. People around the water cooler were talking Wednesday about the water bottle, not his conservative ideas. “Watergate,” as some people have called it, was a self-inflicted wound. A prime time swing and a miss. A fourth quarter choke.
