    This does illustrate one of my favorite principles of modern media: there is nothing too stupid to be considered news if you put a question mark in the headline.

    Will Newt Gingrich distance himself from this?

    He was one of CNN’s ‘talking heads’ last night.

    Or is he considering a primary run, again?

    Good grief. Seen this all day.

    Being thirsty while making a major speech is an unforgiveable flaw, but Bob Menendez and the Central American hookers is barely newsworthy.

    I quit. I’m just gonna let them win and see how I do after the country falls apart.

    I think Rubio should start his own line of water. That’ll shut them up, and they’ll get a lesson on how free markets work.

    Let me see, a CNN hack who says on air that global warming might have something to do with a meteor sailing by the Earth won’t have a “career-ender” moment, but Marco Rubio grabbing a sip of water during a speech will? Du-uh! Of course.

    Yes, but unless we act now, they will destroy him just like they’ve destroyed every other conservative up-and-comer.

    They’re playing the long game.

    I’m with Denise. Embrace the water.

    Make it symbol. For example: Conservatives help you water the economy so that you can make it grow–liberals pour sulfuric acid all over it. [Needs work, but you get the idea].

    Is CNN really stupid enough to believe that a politician taking a drink because his mouth is dry will end his career?

    A picture with a Poland Spring mini-water bottle is sure to be a new Twitter meme.

    Meanwhile CNN wonders if this photo makes dear leader eligible for a third term.

    I’m sure the MSNBC brainroom is working in shifts on a way to claim drinking water is a racist dog whistle.

    They’re trying to cast this as Rubio’s “Ted Muskie” moment, I bet.

    So is this the great flaw in Senator Rubio’s character they’re going to throw at us in 2016? Maybe we can beat Hillary after all.

    If only Rubio had done something less outrageous, like, say, leaving his DNA on an intern’s dress.

    I felt for Sen. Rubio last night. He seemed really nervous. I’m not at all surprised this is a “story.” Watching the news is pointless.

    I love that Rubio posted this photo on his Twitter account last night shortly after his speech:

    I hated Politico’s headline:

    “Marco Rubio’s drinking problem”

    Complete with all the Twitter comments about Rubio, most from leftist twitters.

    Terribly off topic, but I sincerly hope that Troy took that picture somewhere outside of his home. I’d hate to think he had even more boring walls than I do.

    Recall that SNL made fun of Paul Ryan’s sips during the VP debate. They really have something against hydration over there on the other side of the aisle.
