You People Were Beto Leg Humping Idiots

Michael Kruse has a piece being widely passed around today about Beto O’Rourke’s remarkable career of failing upwards.

There’s a reason his biography doesn’t feature much in the campaign. For O’Rourke, the phenomenon on display in that race—failure without negative effects, and with perhaps even some kind of personal boost—is a feature of his life and career. That biography is marked as much by meandering, missteps and moments of melancholic searching as by résumé-boosting victories and honors. A graduate of an eastern prep school and an Ivy League rower and English major, the only son of a gregarious attorney and glad-handing pol and the proprietor of an upscale furniture store, the beneficiary of his family’s expansive social, business and political contacts, O’Rourke has ambled past a pair of arrests, designed websites for El Paso’s who’s who, launched short-lived publishing projects, self-term-limited his largely unremarkable tenure on Capitol Hill, shunned the advice of pollsters and consultants and penned overwrought, solipsistic Medium missives, enjoying the latitude afforded by the cushion of an upper-middle-class upbringing that is only amplified by his marriage to the daughter of one of the region’s richest men.

I know nothing of Kruse’s record and/or past infatuations or lack thereof with O’Rourke, but it is just hilarious watching various members of the Circle of Jerks that make up the political press pass the story around this morning.

These people have been humping Beto O’Rourke’s leg for the past two years.

During 2018, Republicans had to collectively yell with one voice about Beto’s DUI for the national media to cover it all. Even after the race, we were still treated to infatuated press coverage of O’Rourke. Let’s not forget the press coverage of Beto campaign signs popping up around the country.

I realize we are well beyond the point of members of the press having any shame. Talking to the political press corps about their bias is like talking to the klansman with black friends about his racism — he can’t be racist because he has black friends and they can’t be biased because they write critically of Democrats.

Yes, after Democrats lose to Republicans, reporters often savage them. And here we go again.
