Today's Dumbo Flavor Is... The Cubano Water Boy!

The Dumbo Gold Dust Twins (C. — for Crackpot — Cruz and Random Paul) became The Dumbo Triplets this week with the announcement by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) that he was in it — water bottle and all. The Deadline Poet took note of this development and gave The Cubano Water Boy the back of his poetic hand. So far, we have Dumb, Dumber, and Dumbest... but wait! There's more just of the next hill. Lying in wait are The Jebster and Goodhair — a pair of former governors with a lot of baggage. Which one will the Dumbos/Teabaggers choose in Cleveland, OH? Which one of these a$$holes will grab the brass ring? If this is a (fair & balanced) choice between meaningful and empty, so be it.

By coming in the race before Jeb Bush
He shows he’s not, in Bush’s hands, just putty.
And facing Paul and Cruz, his slogan’s clear:
“Vote Marco Rubio — A Tad Less Nutty” Ω
