Twitter had a good laugh yesterday over the New York Times’ “bombshell” report that Marco Rubio and his wife together had accumulated 17 traffic citations¬†dating back to 1997, with the man who would be president flouting the law speeding around in his Ford F-150 sports utility vehicle.

It’s interesting that Halperin brings up a “hypothetical” yet safely irrelevant hit piece on the Clintons.

Yes, this was Halperin in April.

Come on, now, it was an honest question. Let’s treat it with the respect it deserves. Would you conservatives say the same if the traffic ticket story were about the Clintons?
