Or at least that is what someone apparently really, really close to Rubio or who really, really supports him would have you believe. Someone apparently who knows how Rubio votes in an almost real-time basis and is happy to disseminate the information in an apparent effort to stem the tide of national dialogue that Rubio is obstructing the judicial confirmation process based on his well-documented "views" on homosexuality.

In case any of you who assume Rubio is holding up Thomas because he is gay, check the vote today on the nominee for the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, who is also gay. Rubio voted Yea.

How strange. Who among us knew there was a vote yesterday? For the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Which handles limited subject matter such as patents, trademarks, veterans benefits, and public safety officers' benefit claims. Or where to determine the vote of each member of the Senate the day it voted? Who among us describes a vote as "yea?" Raise your hand.
Turns out the vote was 98-0. For a former Deputy Director from the Justice Department. Kind of a no-lose vote for Rubio, eh? On a court that no one knows exists, certainly not the tea bag constituents to whom Rubio must pander, and where the homosexual judge can't rule on cases effecting basic human rights that effect us all.
But I think this will matter to the tea baggers, when they learn of it.
So hey all you tea baggers, if you support Rubio for President and you are opposed to a candidate who supports homosexuals, ask Rubio: did you vote for a homesexual to be one step from the Supreme Court?
Three years ago I saw a play by Miami's own Zoetic Stage, called "When the Sun Shone Brighter." Tell me this is not eerie...
