2024 Goat Rodeo: Rubio’s Running

Marco ‘Big Gulp’ Rubio, the Cold Warrior for a New Generation, and beloved grandson figure of Wingnuts over the age of 75 and under the age of death.

There’s no other way to interpret Big Gulp’s editorial in USA Today:

“…For decades, companies like Amazon have been allies of the left in the culture war, but when their bottom line is threatened they turn to conservatives to save them. Republicans have rightly understood the dangers posed by the unchecked influence of labor unions. Adversarial relations between labor and management are wrong. They are wrong for both workers and our nation’s economic competitiveness.
“But the days of conservatives being taken for granted by the business community are over.
“Here’s my standard: When the conflict is between working Americans and a company whose leadership has decided to wage culture war against working-class values, the choice is easy — I support the workers. And that’s why I stand with those at Amazon’s Bessemer warehouse today.”

Rubio has sniffed the air and senses an opening to be Possum Hollar’s pal. Now before we marvel at a Republican taking the workers’ side in any conflict, note that he’s not calling on regulating Amazon, changing their anti-competitive business practices, or even endorsing anti-trust hearings.

He’s still a Republican, he’s only sensing an opportunity to be a populist-lite.

    Just when you thought the pool couldn’t get any shallower the GOP drains a little more water.

    He is so shallow I’m surprised he doesn’t blow away in a stiff wind. Maybe it’s the lead in his ass that keeps him down?

  5. He said this: Republicans have rightly understood the dangers posed by the unchecked influence of labor unions.

    I think that he MEANT to say this: Republicans have rightly understood the dangers to themselves when unions come into play. They rightly understand the threat to their fat cat bigass money lifestyle and prefer the unchecked influence of their horrifying labor practices.

      I don’t know the Bible well enough to make a guess, but I doubt it would be a quote from that filthy hippie Jeebus.

    We all know that possum hollar like that of most ‘muricans both have short attention spans and would likely not remember that during one of their shout & grunt feats aka republican debates, how fat nixon got lil’ marco to admit how much he is really lacking in manhood & we all know how the base likes their leaders empty headed but packing heat…
