Rubio raises $100,000 selling water bottles

“God has a funny way of reminding us that we’re human.”

For days following Senator Marco Rubio’s response to the president’s State of the Union address, the media collectively decided that it wasn’t anything that Mr. Rubio said that was newsworthy. His measured words and sincerity played well with the viewing audience.

However, as we all know, that wasn’t the real story. The fact that Rubio had to pause for a couple of seconds and take a sip of water become the most overblown, mind bogglingly stupid story in memory. Grown ups calling themselves political analysts actually posed the question as to whether the sip of water would be a “career ender” for Rubio.

The Florida Senator has now made a virtue out of the media’s insanity and offered for sale “Marco Rubio Water Bottles,” the proceeds from which go to his PAC…

…It was a pitch perfect response then, and the sale of the water bottles is clever politics. In an age where political humor is often cruel, Rubio’s poking fun at the media and his detractors by cashing in on their hysteria reveals a playful side of the potential presidential candidate that is both welcome and attractive.
