Right to Rise seems to understand Bush can’t win unless Rubio collapses, and Rubio won’t collapse unless he’s attacked in sustained fashion. But the group’s latest ad is better suited to making politicos grimace, and regular people very confused, than to actually be damaging to Rubio.

But boots and flip flops are different kinds of footwear. Flip flopping isn’t something that boots do. If you don’t already know about the boot controversy, there’s almost no way to make sense of it neatly.
