Now Running For the Florida Senate in 2012: The Jewish Marco Rubio

Keep your eye on this guy. Imagine Florida with two strong rooks connected on the back row.

The guy's name is Adam Hasner, and he's got all the conservative opinion leaders excited.

“He and Marco are very close,” said Mel Sembler, a former finance chairman of the Republican National Committee who is now Hasner’s honorary finance chairman. “They’re very similar politicians: both outspoken, very conservative, very direct. There’s an interesting correlation between them.”

Hasner served alongside Rubio for six years in Tallahassee and was ultimately tapped by the then-speaker to serve as majority leader. Much like Rubio did in early 2009, Hasner is traversing the state, focusing on grassroots tea party and 9/12 rallies, and taking the time to press the flesh at the more establishment-friendly Lincoln Day dinners. Some of the same political handlers who were on board with Rubio’s run are now signing on with Hasner.

...

Hasner hasn’t reached Rubio-levels of fame yet. But he has earned glowing write-ups from prominent conservative publications like National Review, Human Events and NewsMax. On his radio show, Levin had earlier has called Hasner “very impressive … down-the-line conservative” and told his listeners, “This is someone we are going to like — a lot.”

Erick Erickson, author of the influential RedState blog and a CNN contributor, endorsed him last week, saying Hasner had “the best background and most conservative record to run on in Florida.”

It is said he is running as an "unapologetic conservative."

His major opponent will be George LeMieux.... Charlie Crist's former chief of staff.

Do you smell what the Rock is cookin'?

And yes, I am completely against choosing political candidates based on irrational, tribalistic ethnic appeal, in all circumstances and based upon sacred principle.

Unless it works in our favor. In which case... okay.

Hot Damn! See what I did there -- that's "integrative complexity"!!

I'm a hot-damn genius!


Integrative Complexity

It's what I do thirty times a week when I say I'm going to do something, and I really mean, it, and then I don't.

That doesn't make me unreliable, or feckless, or weak.

It makes me Too Damn Smart To Be President.
