Marco Rubio gets back the Ketchup Doritos he paid for

Marco Rubio knew exactly what he was doing when he entered a small corner store on Sunday, he wanted to buy a bag of Ketchup Doritos. The corner store he entered was not random, it was the US test location for the new flavour of corn chip and Rubio wanted to try them to see if he and the chip liked one another.

But a few hours after purchasing them - a lifetime in the mind of a true Ketchup Doritos lover - Marco Rubio had not only NOT tried the flavour, he had involved himself in somewhat of a court battle trying to get back the chips he legitimately paid for after he failed to take them with him when he left the store.

Rubio's defense claimed that during this visit he first learned of the flavour's limited time availability from reading the bag (and shortly after, here). He said that though it appeared as though he forfeited them by leaving them in the store to be purchased by someone else, he was rather in a state of disillusionment as to the circumstance he found himself in and that he did not know what he was doing.

So which is it? Does he or does he not know what he is doing?

He later argued that he has the right to the Ketchup Doritos via proof of purchase and stated that he was very careful in keeping the receipt so there can be no sustained allegations of foul play.

Marco Rubio will have his Ketchup Doritos returned to him in the forthcoming days. I am sure he is happy to see this story turn out much like the one with his delegates being returned to him after he suspended his campaign.

So congrats, Rubio, you are two for two, at least on what I have been paying attention to.
