Time proclaimed Marco Rubio the "Republican Savior." His SOTU response was all water and whine.-- Bearded Stoner (@beardedstoner) February 13, 2013
Congrats, Marco Rubio. I thought only my father's drinking could make me feel that embarrassed.-- Jen Statsky (@jenstatsky) February 13, 2013
You thirsty, Marco Rubio, or is your throat just parched with hypocrisy?-- Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) February 13, 2013
Even I had to be a dick about it.
So the GOP response to SOTU is sending out Marco Rubio to waterboard himself?-- Alex Blagg (@alexblagg) February 13, 2013
Marco Rubio was drinking Poland Springs. Should have shown some Florida pride by swigging Zephyrhills. #UnFloridian-- Kyle Munzenrieder (@Munzenrieder) February 13, 2013
