There comes a time when an American politician has to stand not for what’s popular, but what’s Right, what’s True. Earlier today, Marco Rubio posted the above message on Twitter.com, a website where coastal elites make fun of America and abet their corrupt mainstream media cronies. Rubio, a Republican Senator from Florida, is among the few in a courageous homestead of truth-makers, the little #TCOT TweetDeck on the Prairie, who take to the platform to vent their righteous rage at President Barack Obama, a very bad man. And so this morning, after calling Obama’s recent apology to an art historian “pathetic,” Rubio bravely added: “We do need more degrees that lead to #jobs via @POLITICO for iOS.”
Though Rubio, Esq. — having received his J.D. at the University of Miami — can never earn the privilege of Ted “Fancy” Cruz’s scholarly companionship, he clearly knows his Greek. In this remarkable moment of Twitterary analysis, Rubio identifies that Barack Obama’s conciliatory note to Professor Ann Collins Johns evinces a great deal of pathos, a soothing appeal to emotion that neatly occupies one third of the triad of persuasion identified by Aristotle in On Rhetoric.
