Politician, Know Thy Self

Yup, asshole fits


I just feel very, very lucky, and I love you guys more than you’ll ever know,” O’Rourke said in the video obtained by The Daily Beast. “I know I was a giant asshole to be around sometimes, and you all never allowed my shortcomings to get in the way of running the best campaign this state has ever seen.”

Beto O’Rourke

I thought that I finally found a point where Beto and I were in agreement. But, it didn’t last. I will concede that Beto is an asshole. Where we part ways is the degree.

His characterization is an indication of an inflated ego at work. No sir, Beto can’t be a run of the mill asshole. It is a giant asshole or go home. I’m not saying that Beto isn’t an asshole. What I am saying is that his resume is a little light to claim the category of giant asshole. In the democrat party the competition is stiff. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at his competition.

Teddy Kennedy: cheat, drunk, would be rapist, murderer, traitor.

LBJ: Parade Organizer in Dallas

U.S. Senator Ben Tillman

I guess it is okay to dream. Everybody ought to have a goal, something to shoot for. Beto has to realize that the competition is stiff. At this point, he may not be the giant asshole of his dreams, but there is still time.
