    I don't always drink water. But when I do, it's on live TV and it's kinda weird. Stay thirsty.

    My son's high school government class watched Marco Rubio give his response to the State of the Union. At the part when Rubio awkwardly grabs for his water bottle, the classroom erupted with laughter.

    It's pretty funny, and weird.

    Maybe someone should have put the water bottle a little closer?

    I just got spammed by Marco Rubio via a "suggested post" on FB.

    Send the liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire youÖhe hydrates you too. http://bit.ly/11N5Ubn
    I haven't visited that link; do so at your own peril.

    Along with the post was a picture of a white sport-type water bottle with RUBIO running down the side, and a suggestion to "Get your Marco water bottle today!" Apparently they're available at RealAmericaPac.com.

    Does anybody else find that pac name absolutely, blindingly stupid and insulting to boot?

    Well, they're obviously real Americans if they've found a way to cash in on that.

    Poor guy. He said all KINDS of things we could make fun of in that speech, and all anyone can talk about is the water.
