    The things the news media concentrates on and what it ignores!

    Well, Tom, the obvious answer is “Yes”, of course his career is over.

    Gee, Chris Matthews said it, so it MUST be true!

    But the media always spend more time talking about what just happened and, in fact, I recall hearing, in great detail all about those stories (both sides of the column) in the mainstream media. All made me roll my eyes for various reasons (for the underlying action and just sometimes for the coverage).

    The Rubio water thing? It was attention-getting seeing a politician do something that doesn’t look smooth and polished. It gets attention now, because it just recently happened. Going forward, it will be forgotten far more than the other items. Probably a future Rubio election run will result in a few jokes, but … meh … it’ll just be silly jokes.
