Here`s another good one from Mickey Kaus, just the other day.
P.P.S.: The search for Marco Rubio’s manhood is now focused on a wooded area near the Maryland border … Rubio’s “triggers” don’t prevent instant legalization, the new “90%” requirement is fake, and his call for “multiple hearings” has been brutally denied by Sen. Patrick Leahy ( “Why don’t you let me set the schedule, and we’ll make sure you get a copy of that,” Leahy told a reporter). Rubio keeps losing the fig leaves that are supposed to make amnesty palatable to border-control Republicans.

A phrase like "The search for Marco Rubio’s manhood" is one of those quotable things bloggers like to throw in to add color, but it has a serious point. The junior Senator from Florida is supposed to be a fairly conservative Republican, aside from his enthusiasm for his "fellow" Hispanics. Part of his reason for being on this bipartisan gang is to sell Republicans on the idea that it`s not a total surrender.
If he can`t stand up to the Dems in any way, that`s not going to fly. (Which would be a good
result here, of course.)
