It was a light snow, a slick snow, out by the road our driveway, needing shoveling, got me thinking Beto…

Far too many on the Right have taken a less than guilty pleasure in mocking former Texas U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s existential angst and skewering his “on the road” blog posts. To wit:

    Have been stuck lately. In and out of a funk. My last day of work was January 2. It’s been more than 20 years since I was last not working. Maybe if I get moving, on the road, meet people, learn about what’s going on where they live, have some adventure, go where I don’t know and I’m not known, it’ll clear my head, reset, I’ll think new thoughts, break out of the loops I’ve been stuck in?

I didn't realize that Robert Francis was working on a beard too.

Kind of like Q, he says a bunch of nonsense and those who read what he says, read into it what they want.

Oh, heck, ABX.  We don't even know who Q is, much less what he looks like.  Beto, on the other hand, looks like a crazy monk in the pic Sanguine found.

As Texas Moderator, you must be terribly consternated that he's trying this trick to draw away support from Ted Cruz--AND OMG WEARING A 'STROS HAT, TOO.

What a hunk he is.

He does have that "lean and hungry" look.

His pronouncements are meaningless and vacuous. I estimate an IQ of 70-80.

Oh, I think Beto is even worse than that.  I'll bet his IQ is more like 120.  That is what makes him an even more despicable fool, IMO.

Per modern Congressional standards, that would make him a genius.
