You just knew one of them would go there with footwear. Rubio daring to wear boots with heels in Iowa last week. Oh the horror...

In politics, sometime the most vicious attacks are served with a smile.

Right to Rise, the super PAC backing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, released a new video Tuesday morning attacking Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s selection of boots, missed Senate votes and sometimes shifting positions. It’s a sing-a-long, with karaoke rainbow hues, that boldly ignores the fact that boots don’t really flip or flop. But who cares, if you can sing-a-long?

The deeply biting personal attack shows just how bitter the fight between the former mentor and mentee. Rubio drew mockery for wearing boots with substantial heels, which rivals saw as an attempt to appear taller than his 5’10” frame.
