image of a television on which has been captured the awkward moment in which Senator Marco Rubio lunged offscreen for a bottle of water during last night's State of the Union rebuttal

Republican Senator Marco Rubio was tasked with giving the GOP SOTU rebuttal last night (transcript here), and, as you may have heard ON THE ENTIRE INTERNET, he had a super awkward moment in which he lunged nearly offscreen for a bottle of water.

Immediately after, Jessica (scATX) texted me the above picture she took, which I am sharing with her permission, which is somehow a million times more hilarious to me than a regular old screencap. I laughed until I was crying.

Anyway. I feel for the guy. I always get cottonmouth when I speak, and I always need to have water nearby. It's not that he needed water. Dude's human. As I noted on Twitter last night, it was only so brutally and amusingly awkward because he and/or his GOP handlers had failed to put the water in easy reach. More excellence in GOP planning!

As for the content of his rebuttal, it was total garbage. Obviously.
