raqueldanceThe story so far: Euro art-rockers Neon Neon recorded a song called Raquel in 2007 and a year later someone (shuffle76?) made the song into a music video by mashing up old scenes of (Jo) Raquel (Tejeda) Welch dancing and acting and stuff.

MARCO RUBIO vs MARK TANAKA

rubiomarkup
IN THIS CORNER:

  • takanoMark Allan Takano (born December 10, 1960) is the United States Representative for California’s 41st Congressional District. A Democrat, former Inland Empire school teacher Takano is the first openly gay person of color in Congress.

IN THAT CORNER:

  • rubioMarco Antonio Rubio (born May 28, 1971) is the junior United States Senator from Florida, serving since January 2011. A member of the Republican Party, he previously served as Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives (2007–2009).

THE MATCH (as posted on Facebook)

  • Dear Mario:
    I only break out the red pen on special occasions. So when I saw Marco Rubio’s recent op-ed on Net Neutrality, you know I couldn’t resist. It is intentionally misleading, poorly researched, and littered with errors.
    Marco, please don’t draft essays on your return flight from Iowa. See me in my office and I’ll walk you through Net Neutrality.
    Mark
