I’m skeptical about the Jindmentum but the Rubmentum is for real, at least in terms of his having the backing of Republican elites. Nicole Wallace loves him like she loves ‘Pac:
He’s everything we need and more. He’s modern. He knows who Tupac is. He is on social media.
Steve M finds an amazing “beer primary” NYT mag fluff piece on the charismatic, young Tea Party rock star:
“I’ve never psychoanalyzed it, man.” Senator Marco Rubio says. “I just like football. We all like something, right?” Well, yes, we do, but we all don’t watch N.F.L. coaches’ film or study long-snapping techniques and binders full of predraft player data.
Rubio, 41, is legitimate, a serious fan who not only can name the Dolphins’ long snapper (John Denny) but can also tell you that an N.F.L. long-snapper must get the ball to the holder in seven-tenths of a second.
And many are now asking: how tall is Marco Rubio? Different internets give different answers so far. Reader K suggest that now that the “Christie is too fat” thing has run its course, we’d be wise to get on the “Rubio is too short” bandwagon.
