VIDEO: Rubio bragged, "I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in." He's selling that house for $675K.


rubio water I'm you

A very thirsty Marco Rubio said this during his dry-mouthed response to President Obama's State of the Union speech:

"Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy."

Sorry, Marco, but your extremely sincere efforts to appear extremely sincere (did anyone else catch the pasted-on smile at the very end of his extremely sincere attempt at public speaking?) have failed as miserably as your extremely awkward water bottle lunge.

Rubio is selling his humble neighborhood home and moving to that dreaded liberal cesspool, that Insider's Club of elitists, that so not his home-sweet-'hood (fanfare!)... Washington D.C.

oh noes

Via HuffPo (where there are photos of the working class home he's selling, including the swimming pool):

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) is trying to move his family out of state.

As first reported by the Daily Caller, the GOP's brightest star has listed his 2,649-square-foot West Miami home for $675,000 -- money he'll use to relocate his wife and young children to Washington, D.C., if it sells. [...]

If Rubio gets his asking price, he'll make a nice chunk of change on the 4 bedroom, 3-and-a-half bath pool pad: records show he and wife Jeanette bought the place for $550,000 in 2005.

So much for being one of the people.


Quickie- For sale: except to anyone associated with Tea Party


Today's Quickie: doesn't belong to who you may think it does (see screen grab above). It turns out that the Canadian band The Tea Party owns that web address and wouldn't mind possibly, maybe, perhaps selling it for a tidy sum, with one caveat:

CBS: Bass player Stuart Chatwood says the band would rather not sell it to someone associated with the Tea Party movement, since they don't agree with their politics.

I think Michael Moore should buy it.

That was today's Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?

UPDATE: @airborne18th on Twitter just asked me who owns I clicked over and took a screen shot:


VIDEO- Glenn Beck: The Book Trailer. Now with bonus 'Dog... Vomit'!


Is there no end to Glenn Beck's nausea-inducing spew? And now his own spew includes dog spew, too! Boy howdy, if that's not an appetizing inducement to read what he so generously calls a "book", I don't know what is!

Mmm, mmm,  bad!

First, why does a book need a trailer?

Second, I'm beginning to think he and Former Half-Gov McCan'tWrite are collaborators. Between the two of them-- after putting their two little pinheads together in some kind of demented little huddle-- their final products are about read-worthy as a Preparation H box.

But wait! There's more! He's selling his house at a loss!

Guess those book sales won't dig him out of this one:

According to Business Insider, it is Fox News host Glenn Beck, whose Connecticut home is on the block for a cool $4 million, a little less than what he paid for it in 2005.

Even with the loss, imagine what the Gulf residents could do with that money.

Then again, Blech probably needed all that room to accommodate his over sized ego.


For sale: Blackwater


Sorry, Blackwater, but this is a pretty hard sell. Who'd want 'em?

The security firm formerly known as Blackwater is looking for new ownership, announcing Monday it is pursuing a sale of the company that became renowned and reviled for its involvement with the U.S. government in Iraq and elsewhere. [...]

Owner and founder Erik Prince said selling the company is a difficult decision, but constant criticsm of Xe helped him make up his mind.

"Performance doesn't matter in Washington, just politics," Prince said in a further statement.

Hey Erik, how'd that Iraq performancey killy thing work out for ya? Or was pointing that out "just politics".

Other than the 2007 shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 people, this might hamper their sales appeal too:

More recently, five former executives, including Gary Jackson, the company's ex-president, were indicted on charges of conspiring to violate federal firearms laws. Jackson was among the top officials who left the company last year in a management shakeup.

Location, location, location!

They may be selling, but none of us are buying.

FYI: Here is my Blackwater for Dummeez primer for a refresher course on who these thugs are.
