    It is hard to tell exactly what is going on inside the brain of Marco Rubio that has caused him once again to glitch repetitively through his prepared text like a malfunctioning robot. Maybe it’s evidence of an overly programmed candidate.

    But there is a more a plausible case to be made that nobody is talking about. Maybe Senator Rubio is a linguistic artist?

    Repeating phrases to build a theme is a common device in the very best of poetic works.

    There is a specific term in poetry for what Rubio is doing in his remarks. It's called "Anaphora"

    Anaphora is the “deliberate repetition of the sentence in order to achieve an artistic effect.”

    Might as well source the text that you used verbatim.
