I have soured on Beto.
And I will be voting for the Madman from Calgary.
Is it because I see the writing on the wall for Beto?
Despite polling, I still think Beto has a good shot here.
So what gives?
We have seen this campaign before.
I voted for hope and change twice, and well, we didn’t get much of either.
I always imagined Beto being a kind of Lloyd Bentsen-esque larger-than-life figure, and not some social climber or empty vessel.
After the primary I thought he would have quit this Pollyanna bullshit and shift gears, but no....it is still all Whataburger and Willie. Both of which are things a lot of people pretend to like.
And yeah, it hurts to know I am voting for the Alberta Dork after having given money to the Bike Messenger.
But hey as they say, “La plata viene y va”.
And don’t kid yourselves about Beto about not wanting to run for POTUS should he win the Senate seat.
You know how it will play out...“I talked to Ulysses and he said, 'Dad, but America needs you'...and I was like, 'You’re right, like fuck yea, America needs THIS.”
And it will be more INSERT FAST FOOD JOINT and MUSICAL ARTIST.
