Sen. Marco Rubio has his grandiose ambition wrapped so tightly around his yearning to be president that maybe we should forgive him for sounding as dumb as Sarah Palin at times. The Florida Republican wannabe wunderkind's latest non-sequitur exposed the sort of logic that could leap the Grand Canyon.
In an email to a constituent, Rubio blamed Obamacare for the IRS controversy. As you may have heard, Rubio hates Obamacare and hopes to ride it to the Republican nomination for president in 2016. So, the only answer to things like the IRS keyhole, he says, is to repeal Obamacare". He may yet throw in the Oklahoma tornado as manufactured in the Oval Office, but you get my point about Obama-hating.
The May issue of Smithsonian magazine quotes an angry response by a specialist in microbe research to a scientific team's report that changes in gut bacteria could protect us from strokes. Jonathan Eisen of the University of California scowled that the team's ideas were "completely absurd, dangerous , and self-serving claims that confuse the issue of correlation versus causation."
Back to Rubio: Wish I'd said that.
