Marco Rubio: Hip-Hop Connoisseur

Posted by KingShamus on February 27, 2013

The Senator from Florida, dropping some made rap science on TMZ.

When it comes to early/mid 90’s rap, the stuff that came out of the Biggie-Tupac East Coast-West Coast feud can’t hold a candle to the weirdly endearing Wu-Tang Clan and all their various side-projects and solo discs. And Jay-Z hasn’t put out a decent record since the “Big Pimpin'” days. But that’s just me.

Anyhoo, look at how Rubio is working the media. A Republican isn’t supposed to know anything about modern music, much less have an opinion about old skool and contemporary rapppers. Yet here’s Marco Rubio, talking credibly about urban music. Kinda amazing.

I cannot wait for Harry Reid to tell us of his long standing love of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

UPDATE:  Sorry my post came out kinda janky before.  I stink at teh intertubez.  I got those links and embeds fixed, so you can almost read my yakety-yak now.

The Florida Senate Race Has Taken A Turn

Posted by KingShamus on September 19, 2010

Daniel Foster over at The Corner has some details:

In a new press release, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has taken its first swipe at independent Charlie Crist: [Ed.-blahblahblahstupidDonkeyPuncherpressreleaseblablahblah, I’m not quoting it, tough shit if you don’t like it]

…That the DSCC has taken the kid gloves off as Crist’s poll numbers slide suggests they’ve written him off, and are now concerned with peeling off some of the Democrats and independents currently backing backing Crist — votes Meek will need if he is to stand any chance in November.


Charlie Crist is officially no longer of any use to anybody.  The Florida GOP figured out that CC was a tax-and-spend RINO.  Now Democrats realize they can’t wield him like an ax to cleave off Rubio votes.  In fact, they need Crist to spit the bit and give up his voters in order to make Kendrick Meek competitive.  Florida Democrats who backed Crist as a stalking horse candidate to burn Rubio now have to tear down the candidate they tried to construct out of bullshit  and ill-placed hope.

Isn’t that just…wonderful?

Maybe Charlie Crist isn’t a closet case?

Can I just say this to my Sunshine State readers?

Great people of Florida: Do everybody in America a favor. End Charlie Crist’s career ASAFP.

You guys are making us a little nervous with these wacky poll numbers.

Just sayin’, Floridians. Just sayin’.

Charlie Crist: Maverick Renegade Independent Ubermensch 2.0

Posted by KingShamus on April 22, 2010

Check out this nugget:

It may be the worst-kept secret in American politics today, and it’s apparently about to become a reality. Reliable sources informed me today that embattled Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, whose early lead in his US Senate Republican primary race against former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio has essentially reversed itself in the polls, is preparing to announce sooner rather than later that he will leave the GOP and continue his run for Senate as an independent. Sources add that the speech Crist will use in his announcement is now being drafted.

Yeah, this is taking an odd turn.

What does the writer of the piece-Matt Towery-think is gonna happen here?

It’s unclear the effect an independent run by Crist would have on other Republican candidates in Florida this year, particularly with the added ingredient of the loose network of activists and candidates known in media as Tea Partiers. But if Crist follows through with what my sources tell me is a done deal, things will go one of two ways: It’s possible voters from the conservative wing of the GOP will overwhelm the polls in November and lift candidates such as Rubio in major elections both in Florida and across the nation. It’s also possible that liberal, independent and centrist-minded voters may react to the increasingly polarizing political atmosphere in the nation by embracing avowedly moderate candidates like Crist.  

I don’t see how that last sentence makes any sense this year.  The Tea Party folks have been reasonable, patient and have taken the slings and arrows of the Media-Government complex surprisingly well.  More importantly, the majority of Americans agree with the Tea Party.  I can’t imagine it’s much different in Florida.  The Sunshine State is still a fairly conservative place.

Add to the basically anti-statist mood in the country the fact that an independent Crist would be seen as a spoil-sport baby.  He can’t win as a Republican, so he’s gonna take his ball and go play for another team.  If that seems like a bitch move, it’s because it really is one.  Besides putting the conservative Rubio into the Senate, Florida Republicans would have one more really strong reason to get mobilized for their prefered candidate, which would be to end Charlie Crist’s political career.

I snagged this story from AllahPundit over at Hot Air.  Gracias.
