U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, appears on "The Five" television program, on Fox News Channel, in New York, Monday, March 30, 2015. Closing in on an expected announcement that he will run for president, Sen. Marco Rubio said Monday that he is planning a political event in two weeks in Miami to announce his 2016 plans. The first-term Republican from Florida, appearing on Fox News, did not explicitly say he is running for the White House, instead telling would-be supporters to go to his website and reserve tickets for the rally.

Rubio Rants On Twitter: I Got This Politics Thing, So Back Off

Marco Rubio marked his triumphant return to Twitter by skewering Washington Post “The Fix” reporter Chris Cillizza for calling him “betwixt and between when it comes to his next move.”

Cillizza, not to be outdone in the sarcasm department, returned the shot.

While it’s a near-certainty that “Liddle Marco” won’t be Trump’s VP pick (or accept it), I believe The Donald would give some part of his tiny-handed anatomy to have Rubio on the ticket. In any case, that’s my nightmare scenario. I wake up in a cold sweat thinking of it, screaming “Noooooo!” while Rubio stares at the twisted remains of Trump’s combover, telling it “I will finish what you started.”

It’s telling that Rubio’s Twitter rant may fall into the category of “The lady doth protesteth too much.”

(That one got the Branch Trumpidians all stirred up like a hobnail boot on a fire ant hill.)

Then Marco descended into a wonderful tirade of sarcasm. It’s what makes me like him–stuff like that is unimaginable for Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Chris Christie, or Jeb Bush. They can’t pull it off. Lindsey Graham is capable of it, but it comes out mean when he does it.

Okay, Senator Rubio. We get it. You know what you’re doing (because you have always known what you’re doing, right?). You have a plan, and have told nobody close to you what it is, because they would share it with unreliable reporters like Chris Cillizza.

It’s great to have Rubio back in the fray. I missed him. But I do hope he stays out of my nightmares.
