There’s some major excitement out there for Marco Rubio, because he knows who Tupac Shakur is. Can you believe it? As Atrios explains this is the equivalent of knowing about a famous artist who has been dead for 17 years. He used Ronald Reagan in 1980 being touted for knowing about Patsy Cline who died in 1963. I haven’t read this or this, but there may be some good commentary in there. It is a perfect example of how easy it is to succeed when you carry the banner for the GOP. Of course, one wonders why it can’t be the intellectual rapper that is ever remembered, but I suppose that is like crying about Piggy getting his glasses smashed in Lord of the Flies.
