Talk about trying to turn lemons into lemonade. Or at least into handsome water bottles to keep your lemonade cold.

Yes, after Tuesdays' embarrassing "Watergate" flap, Marco Rubio is now literally selling water bottles with his name on them.

In an e-mail to supporters, Terry Sullivan, the director of Rubio's Reclaim America PAC (you know, the one that's been called a "political slush fund"), tried to play off the Poland Springs swig heard round the world while literally selling water bottles.

"If you've watched the media coverage since, you might think that Marco spent the entire time gulping gallons of water," Sullivan writes. "The liberals and the pundits flocking to Twitter and blanketing MSNBC can't stop talking about what it means that Marco stopped and took a drink of water in the middle of his speech. Why would they be so focused on a man reaching for water instead of on what he said? Because they know they can't effectively tear down his message. So they will try and distract from it."

Of course, its simply not true that no one has focused on and effectively torn down parts of Rubio's message. There's examples of that here, here, here, here, here and here. Just to link a few.

Then Sullivan's e-mail take a turn for the bizarre. He literally starts selling water bottles.

"But don't get angry at the liberals who want to bury what Marco said," he writes. "Laugh at them. So in that spirit, we here at Reclaim America are launching the official line of Marco Rubio water bottles. Send the liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire you... He hydrates you too."

Yes, for just the low, low price of $25 you can buy a Marco Rubio water bottle. Sadly, while Sullivan claims they were launching an entire line of these things, it appears that they're only available in white.

 This is sad, a man drinks water from a bottle and it's headline news?

Isn't there women being oppressed in some third world country, or sex slave trading going on, or North Koreas nuclear program something better to talk about then someone drinking water from a bottle?

The awkward sip of water was just a distraction from a boring, predictable speech.

Sad that after his engaging and logical rebuttal of the The President's State of the Union Speech all you guys on the left can harp on is that he need a take a drink of water.


@mf82_2002 The MNT isn't a real newspaper and they don't staff any real journalists, so don't bother taking this drivel seriously.
