Having lived in the resort areas of the tropics for years, I actually laughed when the NYT described Marco Rubio’s modest fishing boat as a “luxury speedboat”. Viking Pundit’s uncle from New Jersey had one like that.
Hey check it out: I put Rubio’s boat in Hillary’s swimming pool to scale. pic.twitter.com/VFpxsvYtnV

Side-by-side: Marco Rubio’s Boat vs. John Kerry’s Boat.
More, much more at Twitchy.
The Rubio campaign ought to send a thank you note to the NY Times and a dozen roses by now.
Now I want the NYT to try Ted Cruz next!

The NYT has accomplished what I believed impossible, up to now: To show a regular guy in Washington politics.
Favorable publicity money didn’t buy,
WARNING: The following is a rant.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and, if I had $5 for every liberal idiot who looks at me and says “You don’t look Puerto Rican”, etc., because I don’t fit the Liberal template of what a Lateeeno/Lateeena should be like, this blog wouldn’t need to carry ads.
Frankly, by now I expect to consistently encounter discrimination and bigotry from Liberals. It’s in their mindset – identity politics is their lifeblood.
Ruben Navarrete describes one instance:
Ruben Navarrette: Halperin interview of Ted Cruz was painful
. . . Halperin made it personal, and the interview careened into a ditch. He told Cruz that people are curious about his “identity.” Then, the host asked a series of questions intended to establish his guest’s Hispanic bona fides. What kind of Cuban food did Cruz like to eat growing up? And what sort of Cuban music does Cruz listen to even now?
The interview starts at the 9:00 point in this video,
Update: Louder With Crowder has the clip of the interview by itself:
Halperin was likely expecting Desi Arnaz as Ricky Ricardo singing Texas Pete,
Or perhaps Halperin was disappointed Ted didn’t invite him over for cortadito and pastelitos de guayaba. Halperin capped it all off by asking Cruz to “say something in Spanish.”
Cruz is much too polite, but I’m not. Here’s something in Spanish, Halperin,
On Univision’s “Al Punto” in January, Jorge Ramos, the most high-profile Spanish-speaking news anchor in the U.S., declared the 2016 GOP primary “historic” because Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz, both of Latino decent, are in the running. “And Jeb, if we want to turn him into a Latino, too,” Ramos added.
Jorge’s not alone. The Washington Examiner article shows a trend, perhaps initiated from the Bush campaign, to pander.
I oppose on principle the campaign of any member of any political dynasty, now I have one more reason to not support Bush.

I normally ignore anything said by members of The View because life’s too short, but today I’m writing About that “Cuban side or the white side”
And, not surprising,
