If you want to understand the buzz about Marco Rubio, the underdog candidate challenging Gov. Charlie Crist in the Florida GOP Senate primary, watch this clip of Rubio's farewell address to the Florida House of Representatives, via Robert Stacy McCain at Hot Air:

Moe Lane writes (HT again to R.S. McCain):

I've been personally staying out of the entire Crist/Rubio NRSC endorsement brouhaha, mostly because we're going to have Senatorial candidates that are going to need the NRSC's help - but I do have to ask: does Charlie have anything that can beat that?

Seriously. Does Crist play at that level?

See for yourself:

Just in case you think this isn't a fair example of Crist on the stump, see here, here and his performance on Meet the Press.
