The 'Rubio As Dan Quayle' Meme Finally Catches On.

So now, really, he's blaming the media for the fact he can't think on his feet.

Oh, look, in a fundraising letter Marco Rubio is blaming the media for his debate performance. Crushed sour grapes + a noun, a verb, Barack Obama = Rubio whine.


Blaming the media is as robotic as anything he said on Saturday night. Please, Marco, admit that you're as prepared for the Presidency as Dan Quayle ever was.

Yes, the Dan Quayle meme has finally caught on, even though I have been saying Rubio is not very bright for, um, months.

I really, truly do not mean this as a character attack. I'm sure Senator Rubio loves his children. He's just not someone who can think on his feet. And in the age of ISIS, under-employment, and water crises, we need a President who can do at least that.

And for this I blame the Republican power structure, which clearly has decided that a candidate who obeys orders, repeats talking points, and does NOT exhibit original thinking is preferred to anyone who does. Cue Grover Norquist:

I think Rubio will survive this latest fail, because Rubio is the perfect empty suit for the no-tax, drown government in a bathtub, sociopathic conservative power structure. Watch this space.
