Goodbye Rubio Tuesday -- UPDATE




An END-IF ABEND ended you
You can't divide by zero forever
Hugh Hewitt's gonna miss you...

More New Hampshire Coverage to follow.


UPDATED 2/9/16...

Bwahahahaha!  (From, sorry, Politico)

Bush and Rubio race to the bottom
'South Carolina is gonna be a bloodbath,' one Rubio aide says.

New Hampshire was supposed to be the nail Marco Rubio would drive into Jeb Bush’s coffin. 
Now, it might be the beginning of Rubio digging his own political grave.

The two warring Floridians spent much of the New Hampshire campaign eyeing each other, with Bush blasting Rubio in millions of dollars in ads. But in the end, both of them ended up finishing behind Donald Trump, John Kasich, and, barring a last-second shift in the counting, Ted Cruz.

Rubio took to the stage to address his supporters Tuesday night and was surprisingly frank about his poor debate performance on Saturday and its impact on his finish...
I look forward to the competing whisper campaigns about Rubio the secret Drug Kingpin and Jeb(!)'s secret illegal alien anchor baby bastard child.  

You built this shit-filled punji pit, Republicans.  Now enjoy the spectacle of your standard bearers dragging each other into it.

Note: I can see via Benen at the MaddowBlog that David f'ing Brooks had a quota to meet and wrote a column praising Obama's character and temperament.

I don't give BoBo clicks if I can avoid it, but I'm curious: did he praise Obama mostly in order to throw shade at Hillary and Bernie? Did he fold any both siderist claptrap in there?

His warchest is too full to quit. Unless he can figure out how to 'privatize' that campaign money, he's hanging in there. Besides, it's not like he has anything else to do.

re: ABEND

Now that's a word I've not heard in a long time...

A long time...

You sure it wasn't a SOC7 that did Macro Rubio in?

You guessed right. He contrasted Obama against both Sanders (divorced from reality) and Clintons (scandals like lewinsky and other imaginary ones). Not just that Brooks also found a way to bring Rubio into the article. He found Rubio's flailing at the last debate charming.

//Fourth, grace under pressure. I happen to find it charming that Marco Rubio gets nervous on the big occasions — that he grabs for the bottle of water, breaks out in a sweat and went robotic in the last debate. It shows Rubio is a normal person.//

On the way out, did Cristie take Rubio with him?

The billionaire Borg masters I think, will string Rubio through Florida at the least.
If he fails, it becomes an investment for the next election.

They cannot abort this robotic Zygote prototype.

The once billionaire job creators have become the Billionaire Cyborg creators. They giveth artificial life and taketh artificial life.
It was a short distance to becoming the "creator" !

Sidebar;
It seems Tweetee likes him some Kasich . Tingley things might be going up his leg.
"cause you know. Hillary has a trust problem. Which no one else has?

Does that mean he's Josh Freeh, fresh off a Florida bastard farm? (Obvious Transmetropolitan reference for the... point?)

Rubio is crashing in New Hampshire, but I doubt he drops out. He still has a chance to compete against Kasich and beat out Jeb in Florida's primary.

Down the street, turn right, go 2 miles and make a hard right turn. Keep going right until you get dizzy and sick. Really dizzy and really sick.

John Brummett is a token moderate in the Arkanshire's only statewide daily newspaper, a "respectably" conservative birdcage-liner called the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, whose online version is called, prosaically enough, Arkansas Online.

Mr. Brummett: "Domo Arigato, Marco Roboto"

Yes, flop sweat is a charming characteristic in a low pressure job like the presidency of the United States.

@DrBB - my thoughts exactly. The going robotic and repeating the same memorized lines over and over are especially reassuring.
