Domo Arigato, Marco Roboto!

Over- slick lightweight gusano, young Sen. Marco "Glug Glug" Rubio (R- Techworld) had, by all objective measures, a terrible debate last night.  The key reveal happened during a series of back- and- forths with Gov. Chris "Krispykreme" Christie (Thug-NJ), who pointed out that Glug Glug was robotically repeating the same talking point over and over, regardless of the questions being asked.  It was such a cringeworthy takedown of young Glug Glug that even a Republican media gatekeeper like Fox "News" Brit Hume had to wonder about his gravitas:
Trying to assess how much harm has been done to Marco Rubio tonight, his performance reminded me of nothing so much as Dan Quayle in the 1988 [vice] presidential debate when he was asked repeatedly what he would do if he suddenly became president... and he fumbled the question... and that led to the famous moment where Lloyd Benson (sic) who was running for VP for the Democrats... said "I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine and you're no Jack Kennedy."
Feel the Bern burn! (Unfortunately, as we know, Bentsen's Quayle burn wasn't enough to keep the similarly gravitas- challenged Quayle from vaulting into the Vice Presidency in 1988.)

Needless to say, the sorry spectacle has provided fodder for the (accurate) analysis that Glug Glug is Not Ready For Prime Time.  The robot memes just keep on coming - here's just one of our favorites:

It's possible even the Glug Glug- adoring media won't be able to salvage him after this, to which we would say, "Domo arigato, Marco Roboto!"

Trump also did a good job on Rubio at the beginning of the debate.

Yes he did! Good point.

Quite frankly, Rubio did it to himself by repeating the same obviously scripted sound bites over and over again within minutes, if not seconds, of each other. He is a robot for others.

You're right, Jerry. We have another post up today on the Rubio debacle that, as Paul Krugman noted, is only reflective of a party that can't seem to get out of a Groundhog Day cycle of repeating patent nonsense.
