Marco Rubio Babies Stunned to Discover He's a Professional Politician. Sad!

So Marco Rubio is making a difficult, but adult, decision:




Now his fanclub of Adult Babies and semi-right-wing (but kinda liberal) Social Justice Warriors are all pissing hot pathetic tears from their eyedicks.

If I were this pathetic, I'd hide it, not exult further in it.

But as I've said all along: Rubio People Are Silly.

This is a nothingburger. I can't believe this, but I gotta defend Rubio: He's living in the real world, not the stupid, craven Twitter Bubble that semi-right-wing adult babies have locked themselves into, where they think all their Feelings Are Real.

This is the most pathetic thing I've ever seen.

Frivolous people are gotta frivol.

You know, it's very easy to Remain True to Your Twitter-Announced Principles when you have zero responsibility and zero obligation and zero impact on the actual world.

People should stop congratulating themselves so much for being irrelevant and not having any actual effect on the universe beyond Twitter.


This Adds Evidence... to my thesis that Marco Rubio support was never really about this policy or that one. It was about Rubio being a class avatar for a particular cohort, upper middle class college-educated types.

Rubio wasn't primarily a candidate of any particular policy slate; he was simply, like Obama, a vessel into which people hoped would pour out validation for themselves and their particular (provincial) cultural cohort.

He was just the Sarah Palin of the upper middle class set. By exulting in his alleged integrity and singular moral beauty, they necessarily -- passive-aggressively -- exult in their own pristine moral beauty.

And now he's taken that from them -- they can no longer get high on their own supply of moral beauty. Or at least, they can't get high by whiffing off Marco Rubio. I guess to continue insisting upon themselves now requires them to denounce Rubio.

Ego: It's a hell of a drug.

Self-claimed "thinkers" should think more and believe less. This really shouldn't be a contest of how fervently some maniac believes in silly things.
