If you were watching the Republican primary debate last night you might have noticed a spirited exchange (what were the odds) between contenders Marco Rubio and Donald Trump that culminated in Mr. Rubio asserting that, were it not for his inheritance, Mr. Trump would be “selling watches on the streets of Manhattan.” This pithy witticism is slightly dated (I’ve been living in New York since 1984 and the last time I saw anyone trying to sell watches out of a trench coat, Ronald Reagan was in the White House) but apparently there is something eternal in the public imagination about the image of a seedy figure with pockets full of Bolexes, Molexes, and Dolexes (maybe with an Omeqa or two thrown in there).
You may be interested to know that the Rubio campaign has gone the extra mile and made such a watch (or at least its idea of such a watch) available on the candidates online store.
We trust our readers will recall that we present this information from a strict non-partisan stance but we also know how passionate you folks can get about date windows, so folks, let’s keep comments on point, above the belt, and topically relevant. We know you’ve got it in you. Here’s the link. (PS: you don’t actually get the watch, you donate ten bucks to support the Rubio candidacy, but as always in politics, it’s not reality that’s important, it’s the thought that counts.)
