Rubio learns that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em and laugh -- then make money




Sen. Marco Rubio continues to turn his desperate lunge for water during the State of the Union response into a positive.

This evening, his Reclaim America PAC found a way to convert the attention -- MSNBC seemed obsessed with "watergate" throughout the day -- into money. Anyone who gives at least $25 to the committee gets one of the bottles pictured at left.

"Quench your thirst for conservative leadership? Order a bottle now," Rubio wrote on Twitter.
