Through most of the 2016 GOP primary, I supported Marco Rubio. That was when everyone hated me. #NeverTrump hated me because I still defended Trump. Trump-supporters hated me because I was a cuck for not supporting Trump. Eventually Rubio lost me over his dual public meltdowns. The first came when Chris Christie completely dismantled the Golden Boy into a short-circuited robot. The second, when Trump got so far under his skin, Rubio debased himself by telling d*ck jokes.
Rubio is weaker than weak, a creampuff, a mama’s boy. I had stupidly assumed that after Chuck Schumer played him like a cheap violin over immigration reform, that Rubio had learned a little something about the ruthlessness of politics, especially Democrat politics; that he had dried himself behind the ears and was ready to exchange his precious knickers for a grown-up pair of pants.
I was wrong.
If Trump loses, and it looks like he will, the idea that the Florida weakling who utterly collapsed during the primaries could have withstood the Clinton/MSM Machine in a General Election is a lie that will be told far and wide, but it will still be a lie.
And it is painfully obvious that Rubio still hasn’t learned anything. Mr. Marquis of Queensbury is now calling on the GOP to unilaterally disarm over WikiLeaks:
“I will not discuss any issue that has become public solely on the basis of Wikileaks,” said Rubio, who sits on the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee. “As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process and I will not indulge it.” …
“Further, I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us,” he said.
Oh, how precious.
Oh, how lofty.
Oh, how utterly suicidal.
What does Mr. Sanctimony think, that when WikiLeaks does turn on us that the same national Democrats currently financing orchestrated violence and widespread vote fraud will stop and say, “Wait, guys, we shouldn’t capitalize on this. Marco showed us the way.”
Does Modest Marco honestly believe that when WikiLeaks turns on us that the mainstream media will stop and say, “Wait, guys, we shouldn’t capitalize on this. Marco showed us the way.”
This politics. This is the future of our country. Patriots don’t lose like gentleman, they use and exploit every advantage presented.
Man alive, I miss Lee Atwater.
