It’s the first Friday of Lent and it’s refreshing to hear a national figure such as Marco Rubio admit that he doesn’t walk on water. Like the rest of us, he only needs a drink now and then.
Of course as Alton notes this morning The left wing media has used up a week’s worth of words describing that sip of water.
Dueling magazine covers in the past month – the online version of Newsweek, and the print version of Time – have portrayed Obama’s Inauguration as “The Second Coming” and Marco Rubio as “The Republican Savior.”
Of course, taking a sip of water (admittedly awkward, but not life threatening) has the left all in a tizzy about how that ended Rubio’s Presidential chances. No really, I’m not making that up. MSNBC alone has replayed the swig of water 155 times. [The Daily Caller]. Any minute now The Washington Post will start daily posts about how “Bottled Water is the New Macaca.”
But Marco Rubio appears grounded in reality. Not only did he tweet out a picture of a bottle of water as the “GOP Response,” last week he issued this tweet regarding the Time cover.
If the Redeemer-in-Chief issued a similar denial, I must’ve missed it.
