Marco Rubio is not only a lightweight, he is also corrupt:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie launched a fresh and sharply personal broadside here Tuesday against opponent Marco Rubio, charging that the Florida senator who surged to a strong third-place finish in Monday’s Iowa Republican caucuses was “the boy in the bubble.”

Christie questioned Rubio’s toughness, intelligence and even his manhood, telling reporters that he thought Rubio was running a campaign that is “constantly scripted” by his handlers while ducking tough questions about his record from journalists and New Hampshire voters.

Non-political obituary: Bob Elliott, 92, one-half of the famed Bob & Ray comedy team, has died:

On the radio, the duo’s primary medium, they broadcast “from approximately coast to coast,” as they liked to say, on outlets including NBC, CBS and National Public Radio. They were a seminal influence on comic entertainers including Woody Allen, David Letterman, Jonathan Winters, Al Franken (who became a U.S. senator) and “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels.

A hallmark of Bob and Ray comedy was bone-dry delivery of the absurd.

With masterly comic timing — Mr. Elliott with a nasal deadpan, Goulding with booming authority — Bob and Ray mocked the cliches and banalities of newscasts, politics, sports and advertising. The characters they played were inept, pompous or shady — logic-free “experts,” sore political losers, dense reporters and dimwitted everymen.
