I have beaten Marco Rubio up a lot over issues and grand standing and the fact he doesn’t have any accomplishments. But more than once this week I have called out Republicans and Trump supporters for not speaking out against Wikileaks. Now I have to be fair and commend Senator Rubio for doing just that.
Rubio is in a race for his senate seat yet he’s refusing to use any information provided by Wikileaks and the Russian government. He says “Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow, it could be us.” What do you want to bet they have information from the Trump campaign they’re holding onto until they need it?
Rubio also said “I will not discuss any issue that has become public solely on the basis of WikiLeaks. As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process, and I will not indulge in it.” Good for you, Senator Rubio for exhibiting principles that the rest of your party seems to be lacking. Now if you only had enough to pull your support from Donald Trump.
Everyday there are new dumps from the Clinton campaign’s emails. Most notably they’ve been fishing in campaign manager John Podesta’s in and out boxes. What we have discovered is that he grouped vice presidential candidates into “food groups.” There were groups for business leaders, military leaders, women, white guys, and black guys. There was also one exclusively for Bernie Sanders who Podesta referred to in one email as a “doofus.” I’ve been called worse by friends and family than “doofus,” though that word is one of their favorites for me. At least I never got “hipster doofus” which is another Seinfeld reference.
Still, there’s no real dirt in the emails greater than what is probably in Podesta’s spam folder, like free credit checks, check out my webcam, viagra ads and offers from that persistent Nigerian prince.
This is all you’re getting from me today for a column. I have more work with the debate tonight, an exclusive cartoon comping up this weekend for The Costa Rica Star, and I have to work on a special double-secret project for an alternative publication. At some point tonight I plan to eat something.
Yes, there will be a cartoon on the debate by tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll also tweet out a lot of sarcasm so go follow me on Twitter and enjoy the show.
