Marco Rubio: Driest mouth in the Senate

Right after President Obama gave his first  State of the Union Address since re-election — in which the commander-in-chief called for raising the minimum wage to 9 whole dollars, mandating preschool for all Americans, and explained how the extralegal murder of foreign men, women and children by drones is not the first phase of Skynet — the Republican party issued a swift rebuttal.

Sort of.

Representing the Tea Party wing, Kentucky’s own Sen. Rand Paul took time out from protecting Americans from protecting women from domestic violence to call for slashing corporate taxes (not a new idea),  slashing the budget back to levels not seen since 1790, and to explain how immigrants maybe aren’t destroying our basic freedoms like we originally thought. (OK, OK: So technically there were three Tea Party responses last night, from Michele Bachmann and THE Herman Cain).

But the “establishment” response came from rising GOP star and bridge-to-Latino votes Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fl., who, despite disagreeing with the president’s plan to spend money while the private sector continues to sit on its wealth, just really wanted a glass of water.
