From Mediaite:

Rubio: ‘This Is As Ugly And As Nasty A Political Campaign As I Have Seen’

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio appeared on Fox & Friends on Monday where he was asked to open up about his role at this week’s Republican nominating convention and also about the current state of the presidential race. Rubio said that this campaign is as “ugly and nasty” as any he has witnessed.

Marco Rubio is 41 years old.

Which means he was minus-seven-years-old when Lyndon Johnson’s Daisy ad ran.

Which means he was minus-three-years-old when Chicago mayor Richard Daley bludgeoned protesters at the ’68 Democratic convention.

Which means he was aware – maybe – of the 1988 Willie Horton campaign and the subsequent presidential races, none of which can hold a candle to the current race, despite the New Republic’s protestations.

Which means Marco Rubio is an idiot.

    Also means he is completely unacquainted with the history of American political campaigns that he might find in, like, a book of American history.

    From time to time, I flip to C-Span’s really forgotten sibling C-Span THREE (C-Span TWO carries Senate proceedings and some committee hearings so it gets frequent visits for those as well as Book TV) which is most of the time given over to musings by historians (not that I have anything against historians). If you do that enough times, you’ll happen upon some Prof detailing the vituperation levelled at Jefferson, John Adams, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and others that are hard to believe. And their family members were considered fair game as well.
