That's the name that the ever mean-spirited Jennifer Rubin calls young Marco Rubio. She does things like this in part because she is mean-spirited but also because she's an all too eager knife fighter in GOP intra-party politics.
That Marco is wet behind the ears is beyond dispute, but his Naïveté also means he has a tendency to reflexively repeat neoconversative foreign policy talking points - which is good if you want more wars like Jen-Jen seems to be a big fan of. But for now youthful exuberance must give way to the sage experience of Bush III who she supports. This means that, for now, Rubin is very mean to people like the young whippersnapper from Florida. But all this can change if need be.
With all this being said, perhaps there is a Rubio BOOMLET underway if the latest stupid poll is to believed.
Romney is on top with support from 16% of the voters, followed by Bush and Rubio with 13% each. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is next with 11%, followed by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee with 9%, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at 6%, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindahl with 4%, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz all at 3%. Other names included South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, Ohio Senator Rob Portman, New Mexico Governor Susanna Martinez, and former Pennsylvania Rick Santorum --- all receiving less than 1%.Being tied for second place is not bad at all! Maybe the show pony is on his way up the polls.
If there is one thing that is for certain in today's GOP presidential primaries its that there is no shortage of bright shiny objects that can rise to the top of the polls. If Bachmann and Cain did it despite being far crazier, why not young Marco?
