Democratic Rep. Joe Garcia in FL-26 likely will face off against Republican David Rivera. The Cook Political Report rates the race a Toss Up.

According to the polling, Garcia holds an early lead.

Or perhaps we should say ear-ly lead.

Saw this late last night when Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed Politics tweeted it out:

At the time there were about 50 or so views, now it’s gone viral.

Sure, sure.

Completely non-substantive, ridiculous, petty stuff. Actually, quite stupid. Is this what politics has come to?

Uh, yeah.

Just try thinking of Joe Garcia now without thinking of this.

For years political scientists will be studying whether Joe Garcia picking his ear wax and eating it influenced the election. Because that’s what political scientists do. (Sorry, had to fit in a dig at political scientists.)
