Who Hijacked Our Country

Who's the Worst of the GOP White House Contenders? Marco Rubio.

By a mile.  Nobody else in the GOP Clown Car even comes close; mostly because the rest of them don't have a snowball's chance in Hell of ever winning a national election.

Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina are batshit crazy.  Donald Trump is too loud and obnoxious.    Ben Carson??? ROTFLMAO!  Ditto for Jeb!

Marco Rubio is every bit as Far Right, every bit as corporate-owned-and-operated, as the rest of the GOP Clown Car, but without the foaming-at-the-mouth bug-eyed craziness that would scare off Middle America.  Marco Rubio COULD get elected if he wins the nomination.  And that is just plain fuckin' scary.

Underneath that smiling personable Ricky Martin demeanor, Rubio is just another corporate prostitute who's being paid to pick up where George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan left off.  Here's Matt Taibbi's impression of Marco Rubio in a Rolling Stone article:

He is short but prickishly good-looking, all hair and teeth and self-confidence. He's the kind of guy that no group of men wants to go to a bar with, both because he spoils the odds and because he seems like kind of an asshole generally...There are young women in the crowd looking up at him adoringly, like a Beattle... He's so slick, he could probably sell a handful of cars at every speech...He checks all the boxes of what the Beltway kingmakers look for in a political marketing phenomenon: young, ethnic, good-looking, capable of working a room like a pro and able to lean hard on an inspirational bio while eschewing policy specifics...Rubio sells a kind of strident, bright-eyed dickishness that in any other year would seem tailor-made for roping in conservatives.

Scared yet?  Here are some of the policy specifics that Marco Rubio wants to eschew at least until AFTER he wins the White House:

If you like Private Prisons — aka the Prison Industrial Complex, For-Profit Prisons, the various Kids-For-Cash scandals (Google it) You'll love Marco Rubio.

And don't you just hate those FCC commies with their nanny state Net Neutrality?  Wouldn't you love to crack down down on those municipal governments who are providing low-cost high-speed Broadband access?  So would Marco Rubio.

And needless to say, Marco Rubio wants to return control of banking/financial regulations to the Wall Street thugs who have purchased him.

Be Very Afraid.

Oh. My. God. Just when you think you've heard it all, there's more. This guy Rubio sounds like the candidate from hell. Matt Taibbi is right when he says the guy just plain looks like an asshole. But then he opens his mouth and PROVES he's one. Just the privatized prison issue alone... is there any less-humane thing we can do? If so, and there's money in it, Rubio will find and embrace it.

All Democrats need to vote in this election and prevent this tragedy from happening. Tell your friends. Get out the vote. Save America!

Oh, and just by the way, Marco Rubio is exactly as ethnic as Taco Bell. Just sayin'.

SM: I don't know about how ethnic Rubio is, but for a long time he was claiming his parents fled Cuba to get away from Castro's regime. (Castro's predecessor of course -- Batista -- was a benevolent president of a kind gentle democracy. Not.) When reporters found out that Rubio's parents had left Cuba several years before Castro took over, Rubio tried to wiggle out of it -- "huh, well, you know, tomato tomahto..."

For awhile his campaign seemed to be slipping. His attendance/voting record in the Senate has been pretty sporadic, and he was publicly saying he was tired of being in the Senate. Jeb Bush even chided him during one of the debates, saying something like "uh, Marco, you have to fulfill your 6 year obligation in the Senate."

I hope the for-profit prison industry gets a lot more publicity -- mostly because it's a horrifying human rights abuse that doesn't belong in a supposedly civilized country.

Mark my words Tom, you will be printing articles like these on all of them before the elections. Rubio may not sound so Nutsoid by then.

Erik: I'm only worried about Rubio because he's the only one out of the whole clown car who's slick and charismatic enough to win a general national election. So I'm hoping that one of the other wackier nutsoids gets the nomination, which IMHO will practically guarantee a win for Hillary/Bernie or whoever.
