Rubio's Sip Of Water A Prank?

An interesting observation was made last night on Fox News’ ‘The Five’ when host Dan Perino noted that SOTU responses such as the one Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) gave on Tuesday night are never really remembered unless something noteworthy occurs during the response–either a gaffe or in this instance a ‘sip of water’ would certainly qualify.

Perino’s point leads to an interesting question- was Rubio’s sip of water on camera planned in advance to draw as much attention away from the President’s address as possible?  Rubio is a very clever guy and no doubt knew the import of attempting such a maneuver on television in front of a national audience–if it was indeed a ploy, it could very well turn out to have been a brilliant one in retrospect.
