Possible candidates for Mittens’ vaunted VP slot spent the day competing for the title of the most hopelessly deluded:
TPM— Portman spoke first, and gave a speech to the evangelical audience grounded in his personal faith. It was personal and emotional — Portman choked when he talked about leaving President George H.W. Bush’s administration to care for his ailing mother. …
Rubio, on the other hand, gave a loud speech that emphasized the importance of faith and America’s connection to the Judeo-Christian tradition that had the audience on its feet. Here’s a sample: “As frustrated as we may get with our republic and the fact that it’s not always the most efficient, I hope every single day in your prayers you give thanks to God that you live in one,” Rubio bellowed. That got a standing ovation.”
And by republic of course, Rubio meant the kind where eccentric bilionaires buy and trade national executive politicians like used DeLoreans, and nasty women lawmakers aren’t allowed to mention their unholy nu-nus when debating legislation about the menfolk’s noble and righteous wee-wees.
