The Unbearable Smallness of Mind

Rising GOP star Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Qaddafi's death: "I'm glad it's all working out. ... So, that's the first thing. The second thing is, you know, I criticize the president, for, he did the right things, he just took too long to do it and didn't do enough of it." Um, what? Rubio of course has zero foreign policy experience -- and it's showing. His remarks are roughly akin to saying he's glad FDR won WWII but he took too long to defeat the Axis powers. (That whole Normandy beach landing thing shoulda been done right after the Pearl Harbor attack, right?) The unbearable smallness of Rubio's mind -- politically and intellectually -- is a wonder to behold. Can you imagine Obama ever saying something as obtuse and unhelpful as this about a sitting president who just scored a big win for us, Libya and the world? If Rubio represents the future of the GOP as some say, then this country really is in trouble. (And is it just me or is Rubio the spitting image of song-and-dance man Desi Arnaz of the old "I Love Lucy" show?)
