I have long thought Beto would be a great statewide candidate largely because he is tall, good-looking and handsome.
And what can I say?
I have been right.
When you are tall, good-looking and handsome you can say things like, "One time Steve sharted while we were on our way to the Elbow room", and nobody would bat an eye.
Being good-looking and handsome myself, I donated to the guy.
Us beautiful people need to stick together.
But lately, I have had a funny feeling.
There is something off about Beto.
I cannot quite put my finger on it.
I am just not sure I would vote for the guy.
Maybe it is the fact that Beto is a runner and runners are a bit-off. Seriously.
Or maybe it is his dishonesty about border and immigration policy when he himself lives in probably the most militarized city on the US-Mexico border.
Or maybe it is his dishonesty in railing against PACs but the only reason he had a congressional career was because of them.
Or maybe because I see the whole Obama thing happening all over again.
Where people attach all sorts of false hopes and aspirations on what is an empty vessel to only get ripped-off in the end.
And I say that as someone who voted for Obama twice.
Whatever the case maybe, I am just not as excited about the thought of having a wealthy white guy knocking off the first Latino US Senator to represent Texas from his seat as I once was.
