Rick Santorum drops out, endorses… Marco Rubio.

I did not see that coming. Although I should have. One of the aggravating things about Rick Santorum in 2012 was that I generally liked his foreign policy instincts; this would normally be a plus for a candidate, except that I kind of didn’t like Santorum’s demeanor generally.  But I can see Santorum going with Rubio on natsec grounds.

PS: Yes, I can imagine that this news was distressing to some candidates out there.

Marco Rubio and the Football of Vengeance.

I was only going to chuckle about this Marco Rubio ad, but then I got to 1:27 and then I realized that I’d have to post it.  I seriously have to. It’s, like, a geek obligation and everything.

Via @EWErickson.

PS: Dr. Ben Carson is a remarkably nice man. I mean, it’s like there’s no malice or spite in him at all. What the hell is he doing in American politics?

Marco Rubio shows us how to troll the Washington Post.

You do gotta feel sorry for the WaPo: they’ve been chasing the macaca for pretty much a decade by now. Why Bezos hasn’t arranged for an intervention is beyond me. Maybe he knew that he was buying a junkie paper that needed a fix, man?

Anyway, via Mediate.

Watch this Republican politician school this atheist! …Nicely, mind you, because Jesus was watching.

The amazing thing about this video?  The guy who put this up thought that it would help spread the word for atheism.

I’m a little surprised that @JeffBezos tolerates racism at the Washington Post.

This is, in a word, nasty.

You’ll note that I skipped the gif, because it depicts two children with Hispanic ancestry as monkeys, and unlike Ann Telnaes I don’t want to subject my readers to anything that nasty. You can look it up on Twitchy. Anyway, Marco Rubio’s response works for me:

Note, by the way, that the Washington Post was the institution that turned ‘macaca’ into a Holy Crusade. I wonder if any of them over there understand the irony? Or irony at all, really?

Found here. Short version: Hillary Clinton’s in trouble. Thanks to Barack Obama, really.

Quote of the Day, The Dynamics Of This Primary Race Are Always Fascinating edition.

Allahpundit, on Jeb Bush’s current strategy – and latest argument against Marco Rubio:

If that analogy is true, that Rubio is Obama and Bush is Hillary, it … doesn’t bode well for Jeb given how 2008 turned out for Clinton. The last time a national electorate was given a choice between a charismatic untested young pol who’s great in front of an audience and a more experienced pol whose main credential was her last name, with both in agreement on 99 percent of policy, they opted for the more dynamic candidate. Jeb’s theory is that Republicans, having learned a lesson from the Hopenchange disaster, will choose more wisely than Democrats did. But I don’t know. There are worse insults in politics than being compared to a guy who crushed the other party twice in winning the presidency.

Not taking sides – and I wouldn’t quite call 2012 us being ‘crushed;’ our down-ticket losses were frankly minimal – but… nope, still not taking sides. I will note that Wednesday’s debate should prove to be a lively time. Certainly it won’t be one of the snoozefests that the Democrats keep promising, then grimly delivering…

Quote of the Day, Actually, The VRWC Has An OPINION On Eminent Domain edition.

For example, ‘Kelo’ is practically a swear word for us.  Taking land for public use is bad enough, albeit explicitly permitted by the Constitution; taking land and giving it to a real estate developer is downright odious.  It’s not the biggest conservative/libertarian issue out there, but it’s definitely one that most people involved in the VRWC have an opinion on.

I bring all of this up because Hot Air had Senator Marco Rubio over to do a guest column*:

Though it may not make headlines as often as other issues, the fundamental right to private property has been under assault for years through our government’s abuses of eminent domain. Eminent domain is the authority vested in government to force the sale of private property. While this authority can be a necessary evil in rare cases related to public development, such as the building of crucial infrastructure, its modern use far exceeds this limitation. Today, it is often wielded by crony capitalist politicians to benefit wealthy and powerful private developers.

Hillary Clinton DOES NOT WANT you to have cheap cab rides.

She hates the very idea of it.

Marco Rubio goes into Hillary’s thinking a little, but really: this is the best way to describe her thought processes. (more…)

Tweet of the Day, I Wonder Whether Marco Rubio Is Self-Leaking This Stuff, Too edition.

Because stories like this won’t hurt him.

I mean, wow. Marco Rubio took some of the money that he got from a book deal and bought himself a boat. Does anybody in the New York Times actually talk to anybody outside of their cozy little epistemic closure bubble? …I mean, aside from people at Politico, of course.

PS: Hey, New York Times: $14 million net loss for the last operating quarter, I believe? Since we’re keeping track, and everything.

NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo.

I know that RedState has already covered the remarkably weak-tea ‘revelation’ that the Rubio family racked up some traffic violations, but it’s an even more tawdry-to-Democrats story that we thought.  As in… amazing what you can write when you get fed a story, you know what I mean?

The New York Times Friday report that Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and his wife Jeanette have been cited 17 times for traffic violations was written after the citations were pulled by liberal opposition research firm American Bridge, according to Miami-Dade County court records.

Records show that each of the citations mentioned by the New York Times were pulled in person by American Bridge operatives on May 26, 2015.
