Who knew? Rubio loves 'Wedding Crashers'

House Speaker Marco Rubio has updated his Facebook page quite a bit since this blogger wrote about it one month ago here. The conservative Republican's favorite movies include R-rated hits Pulp Fiction and Wedding Crashers.

Rubio has an impressively long list of 711 friends, though he's still "a Republican with 0 beliefs."

Here's his response to Miami Herald columnist Fred Grimm's take on his new job at FIU:

"If you are looking for proof that the mainstream media is losing any objectivity, please read this column. Mr. Grimm ignores the fact that my salary is being paid mostly by private funds. He blames me personally for budget cuts at FIU (ignoring the fact that we are living in the worst budget conditions in the HISTORY of Florida). Of course he doesn't offer any ideas about where we could have gotten the money to increase funding for universities (especially since we had over $5 BILLION LESS than the year before). He even reads Professor Hauptli's mind!

"I do not take this personal. It comes with the territory. But these guys (especially the Miami Herald for some reason), see every story as an opportunity to spin to the negative. By the way, Mr Grimm never called me for my side of the story! Anyway, I am proud and excited about my new assignment."

beth, I am glad you have so much time on your hands to keep looking for stupid things to hammer republicans on.

Mr. Right

This guy is a mistake! Facebook or not as an FIU alumni I am insulted to have this guy collecting a paycheck from my university.

Hi ,

I just wanted to say that I love your website.

As a bride-to-be on a tight budget, I recently discovered an online bridal jewelry store called GlamForLess.com.
Though their website is plain and simple, I found some great deals on jewelry sets for me and my bridesmaids.

I think other readers on a tight budget may also find GlamForLess.com to be helpful.
You may want to check them out at http://www.glamforless.com/ and inform other readers about it.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards,
Lisa Bloom
