Sip of water doesn't deserve criticism

Regarding Sen. Marco Rubio's response to President Obama's State of the Union address. I find it distasteful that the mainstream media in conjunction with the Democratic Party would try to destroy Sen. Rubio and distract from his otherwise insightful message all because he took a sip of water. If we want to compare blunders, I believe we can find plenty on the other side of the aisle. Is it any wonder why good people shy away from politics because of some indiscretion in their past?

But if you're a Democrat you could then flaunt your indiscretions or just simply make absurd statements all while the party rallies around you. But on the other hand, the Obama media try to destroy a Republican's career and message all because he took a sip of water. Do you find any hypocrisy in all this?
