3. Grifters gotta do something to pretend

 

they are worth supporting. I guess his communication and quick-thinking skills were not adequate for wingnut welfare on Fox.

5. It beats working for a living.




Best gig he ever had. He didn't show up for work but
still got a fat paycheck and excellent bennies.

6. All because he had one morning of interviews where he didn't screw up horribly

He was sounding like an average politician who was describing the response to a tragic event in his district.

Congrats, he didn't fall over himself. He should rule us all.

7. He needs a job from which he can be absent and still get paid.

9. Rubio and Lt. Gov. Lopez-Cantera brought me to tears,

yes, real tears of gladness and gratitude, to realize that nobility in politics is very alive and well with them.

"You should reconsider running for your seat,” Lopez-Cantera told Rubio as they sat in the senator’s pickup truck about an hour before sunset, after witnessing the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Rubio was caught off guard. After all, Lopez-Cantera has been running for his Senate seat in a crowded GOP primary for more than a year — with Rubio’s encouragement.

Lopez-Cantera made clear he was still fully committed to running, even as he initiated a gut-check moment for both of them. Until then, Rubio had resisted the entreaties of Senate leaders and donors to rethink retiring from the Senate. Lopez-Cantera’s conversation removed one of the biggest obstacles to Rubio running again: a longtime friendship that he wouldn’t want to ruin due to political ambition.

I don’t want you to feel like you have to say that because of outside pressure,” Rubio responded. But Lopez-Cantera said he felt “compelled” to continue talking it through. The two of them were shaken by what they saw in Orlando, the bloody sidewalks and the ashen faces of local, state and federal authorities.

This is bigger than me. And this isn’t about me. And it’s not about you. It’s about our country and this election,” Lopez-Cantera said to Rubio, recounting the conversation for Politico. “It’s deeply consequential. … In the current field, I’m the best candidate in the general election. But I’m not looking at this through rose-colored glasses.” Bottom line, Lopez-Cantera said in the interview: “Nothing has changed. I’m still running. Marco isn’t.”


June 24 is the dealing for filing.

10. A job he rarely bothered to show up for

He was the biggest no-show in both houses of congress.

Let's hope somebody opposes the little shit and points that out.
