2. Rubio was a hot mess in every respect.
Edited on Wed Feb-13-13 09:45 AM by No Elephants
For one thing, apparently, Rubio missed the re-branding memo, as well as missing that Rand Paul was supposed to give the wing nut rebuttal. (Why were we treated to two Tea Party candidates giving rebuttals anyway?)

Rubio, who comes from a purple state, went 2009 Republican on the nation's ass--and in two languages, no less.

Not to mention that he looked panicked.

Christie wisely declined to be considered to give that speech.

As a general rule, how stupid is it to leave the guy alone with a camera to give the rebuttal, when the nation has just seen whatever majesty this nation has to display around the President?

Regardless of which party has to give the rebuttal, get a classy-looking room and fill it with folks who will smile and applaud and give standing ovations to the rebutter in all the right places, as though it were a campaign event--which indeed it is. (Please, no talking to empty chairs or anything else in the total nutter category.)

That way, there are natural pauses during which the speaker can sip water or compose himself or herself or whatever. And not having enough water within easy reach was about the poorest planning for a speaker.

Well, lucky break for the Democrats anyway.

And the D.C. stupidity continues.

At least Roman emperors used to include bread with the circus. Now, we get only the most expensive clown show in all of human history.

P.T. Barnum was wrong though. There can't be only one sucker born every minute. After all, there are about 350 million of us and only 537 of them.
