Marco Rubio fans rough up 'Rubio Robot'
Video. I see some laws being broken there. Crack any law book open, and it says: a) Don't bulldoze someone with a Rubio sign, and b) don't choke the life out of someone in a "Rubio Robot" costume. [rdbrewer]

Lunar New Year turbulence as 'fire monkey' swings into action
"As the Lunar New Year of the Monkey swings into action Monday, fortune tellers foresee 12 months of political and financial turbulence...." Come on. That wasn't exactly a hard call. Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]

Harry Enten, FiveThirtyEight: Marco Rubio Is In A Precarious Spot In New Hampshire
"But the debate, during which Chris Christie pretty thoroughly tore Rubio apart, appears to have changed all that. It’s hard to say what people expect of Rubio now, but he’s in a pretty precarious position." [rdbrewer]

TheHill: Pressure on Lynch to step aside in Clinton email probe
Via Drudge. Again. (I'm a lazy victim today). [rdbrewer]

JWF: Hilarious: Bill Clinton Now Whining About Misogyny As His Wife Faces Humiliating Defeat in New Hampshire
That is funny. It can't be that she's a nasty, negative weirdo; it's that all you people hate women. [rdbrewer]

TheDC: Accused Rapist Bill Clinton Complains That ‘Bernie Bros’ Are ‘Profane’ And ‘Sexist’
Heh. Bill Clinton. [rdbrewer]

Victor Davis Hanson, PJM: Hillary and the Suspension of Disbelief
"In ironic fashion, Hillary’s own vocabulary best describes her conduct. A 'willing suspension of disbelief' most aptly sums up Hillary Clinton’s disastrous 2016 primary campaign, which so far seems more disastrous than her 2008 disastrous campaign." Via @EdDriscoll. [rdbrewer]
Inside the Cruz campaign, "A culture of kindness and courage". A good leader makes sure to take care of his people. [Weirddave]

Madeleine Albright criticizes young women who support Bernie Sanders
She said, "There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other." I always wanted a reporter to ask her why she didn't quit the Clinton administration in protest because of Bill's treatment of women, including female employees-- you know, if Halfbright wants to help other women so much. Related: College Women Tell NBC They Were Offended Hillary Clinton Played Gender Card. Also: Hillary claimed she's not "establishment" because she's a woman. [rdbrewer]

@ByronYork: Some call Rubio a 'robot,' which I think is unfair. And then in exchange with Christie, he acts like a robot.
He was fine after they rebooted him. [rdbrewer]

Forbes: Clean Up Your Act, PolitiFact: Why Ted Cruz Was Right On Obamacare And Jobs "In their rush to label Ted Cruz a liar, PolitiFact ignored economic theory, ignored economic consensus, ignored problems with the evidence they had amassed, ignored that some of the evidence they collected supports Cruz, ignored reams of anecdotal evidence, and dismissed Congressional Budget Office projections based on nothing more than a subjective and arbitrary distinction PolitiFact themselves invented." [Y-not]
The Daily Signal: New Planned Parenthood 'Sting' Video Released "Daleiden’s group released its latest hidden-camera video, shot in April at a Planned Parenthood facility in Houston, two days before his appearance in the same city to respond to his indictment by a grand jury. In the new video, an official of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast appears to admit that Planned Parenthood sells fetal tissue." [Y-not]
The Rubio Menace: A Rubio Candidacy Will Drive the Stake Through the Heart of Any Kind of Push For Actual National Sovereignty
Mickey Kaus writing... He doesn't announce this, but what he's complaining about is the Establishment's nasty habit of winning on arguments by refusing to have the argument at all. Marco Rubio will not be nominated due to his position against American sovereignty; he will be nominated because he's "electable." Having been nominated for reasons having nothing to do with his position on American sovereignty (he's against it), we will nevertheless have elected the anti-sovereignty position without having ever had an actual debate on it.
This is how they manage us. This is how we permit ourselves to be managed.
Pop quiz, hotshot: Who said the following, SJW or Fox News personality?
"'["Bimbo"] gins up other comments along those lines, which is diminishing obviously to not just the woman who is being attacked, but to women in general.'" I've seen the light.

TheDC: Refugees Go Clubbing In Russia, Harass Girls, Wake Up In Hospital The Next Morning
"A group of 51 refugees were brutally assaulted outside a night club in Murmansk, Russia, after they groped and molested women at a night club Saturday. The refugees had previously been ordered to leave Norway for “bad behavior” and tried their luck in Russia. What they didn’t realize when they went out clubbing in Murmansk is that Russians have less tolerance when it comes to sexual assault on local women..." I like to begin the day with a heartwarming human interest story. [rdbrewer]
