According to CNN, on Tuesday night, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) committed a cardinal sin: he took a sip of water from a bottle during his response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. They actually ran a chyron reading: “CAREER-ENDER?”
CNN now claims they were joking; “It was a tease,” said CNN spokesperson Edie Emery to Politico. “Wolf [Blitzer] specifically said no one thinks this will be a career ender.” But the media’s insanity over Rubio sipping water wasn’t limited to CNN. It permeated television throughout the day. In the view of the mainstream media, leaving a drowned woman in your car at the bottom of a river shouldn’t end your career (Teddy Kennedy); ejaculating on an intern in the Oval Office shouldn’t end your career (Bill Clinton); allowing a male prostitution ring to run from your apartment shouldn’t end your career (Barney Frank); leaving Americans without security in Benghazi and quietly going to sleep as 4 Americans die there isn’t a career ender.

Rubio used a parody of the Dos Equis commercial to jokingly turn things around: “I don’t always drink water, but when I do, I prefer to be awkward. Stay thirsty, my friends.”
