It's no secret that the mainstream media carries water for Barack Hussein Obama, but in the wake of the State of the Union address and Republican rebuttal, they've hauled it farther than Gunga Din.
Specifically, the Left-leaning media is apoplectic about Senator Marco Rubio pausing in his remarks for approximately a nanosecond to take a quick sip of bottled water before continuing with his on-target evisceration of Barry's preposterous speech.
If you're asking "what's the big deal?," Hope n' Change Cartoons is forced to reply that we have no freaking idea. CNN, which to date hasn't given a rat's ass about Obama's dereliction of duty in the Benghazi murders, actually asked "can a drink of water make or break a political career?" while running a slow-motion loop of Rubio's sip, subtitled "Career-Ender?"
Frankly, we think this is about the least interesting water-related political scandal imaginable. Especially when certain others which spring to mind...
Let's see, Teddy Kennedy drowned Mary Jo Kopechne in water. Jimmy Carter, while fishing in Georgia, spotted a bunny swimming in the water and beat the tar out of it with an oar. Former and future presidents Bill and Hillary Clinton were neck deep in the Whitewater scandal. John Kerry's lies about his swiftboating experiences (while on water!) were used to undermine our country and our armed forces. And even Barack Obama needs to answer for adding to the environmental damage from the BP oil spill because he insisted that the waters be cleaned only by union crews, thereby increasing both cleanup time and cost.
All of which makes us think that simply taking a sip of water during a brilliant speech isn't much of a crime.
Maybe the mainstream media should actually try it sometime. It could make a nice break from the president's Kool-aid.
In fairness, Hope n' Change wasn't drinking water that night either.
