Marco Rubio Drinking Water: A Video History

Yes, it has come to this. A Washington Examiner round-up of other moments the senator from Florida has casually rehydrated on camera proves Marco Rubio's post-State of the Union swig wasn't the only awkward moment he's had with the wet stuff -- you know, water.

"I think I just drank Clinton Eastwood's water," he says in a Republican National Convention aside featured in the clip.

O tempora, o mores!

I'm still of the school that after everyone has had their fun at Rubio's expense, his remarks on the minimum wage and his vote against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act will be much more consequential for his political prospects than one viral moment from last night. But who knows -- maybe our politics really are that trivial.
