The Sip Heard Round The World

Big F-ing Deal.

Last night, when giving his rebuttal to President Obama's State of the Union address, Senator Marco Rubio at some point paused to take a sip of water.

And the Interwebs spontaneously combusted with Rubio/Water memes.

Now, far be it from me to defend any Republican, especially of the teabagging persuasion, but is this really the first time in the history of the world that a speaker, on television or anywhere else, paused to hydrate his palate?

I repeat:

Perhaps the water was spiked with a sedative to calm Rubio's jitters at having to give the speech without a teleprompter.

Because we all know that only Democrats use teleprompters, right?

Perhaps Rubio was reluctant to endorse the fact that the infrastructure that delivered the water he drank was built by the guv'mint. The pipes that delivered the water to the bottling plant, the regulations that ensure the water is safe to drink, and the roads that the delivery trucks used to bring the water to his studio.

Oh, please. Everyone knows that water is made by God, and put in plastic bottles by the Job Creators, who need a tax cut so they can put more water in more bottles.
