BETO is an empty suit:
“Beto O’Rourke, traveling the country doing a head-snapping number of presidential campaign events, had just finished an extended version of his stump speech Wednesday when a self-described cable news devotee confronted the former congressman over his absence from her TV screen.
O’Rourke’s cable absenteeism diverges with the omnipresence of other 2020 candidates, particularly South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, whose media saturation strategy corresponds with his recent rise in polls and surprise early fundraising successes. …
Let me check the latest from the the Beta O’Dork Parody Account:

Does he remind anyone else of Patrick Bateman from Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho? He is pretty boy who does nothing but recite crowd pleasing clichés.

Interesting stuff … BETO as Bateman. I might think some more about this later.
Anyway, Mayor Pete is the hip new thing with the media set:
“Burning with the velocity of a prairie fire on a gusty Indiana day, Pete Buttigieg scorched the airwaves, seared the podcasts, and charred the press this week as he ignited his presidential campaign, temporarily torching his Democratic competition in the process.
The secret to Buttigieg’s publicity run was no secret, wrote Matthew Yglesias in Vox. Like Molly Bloom in his favorite novel, Ulysses, he can’t stop saying “yes”—to media invitations. In recent weeks, he’s appeared on a CNN town hall, Ellen, A-list podcasts and Morning Joe, and been featured in New York, POLITICO Magazine, the Atlantic and much more. But saying yes is never enough to hold the press spellbound. Buttigieg has satisfied the ravenous press corps’ appetite by offering them an entire menu of newish things—no, make that an entire food court of newish things—to write about. He’s the youngest candidate in the field (at 37, he’s the only millennial except for Tulsi Gabbard), he’s gay and married, he’s an Afghan war veteran, he’s a Rhodes scholar (as is Cory Booker, but never mind), he plays a decent piano, he’s a churchgoer, he’s the mayor of the fourth-largest city in Indiana, he once gave a TEDx talk, he worked as a McKinsey consultant, he’s a polymath, he’s as earnest as a preacher, he’s an old person’s idea of what a young person should be like, and he’s figured out how to package progressive ideas as moderate. …”
Is Pete Buttigieg even in the populist conversation? NO
LOL … leftwing journos are so dumb.
Who has the higher ceiling here? Who is going to play in the populist quadrant of the electorate? I want to WIN because we can’t afford to have Blompf and Larry Kudlow toasting the “Goldilocks” economy in 2021-2025 as deep learning AI rips its away through the working class.
Note: The reason that Blompf is president is because he reaped a whirlwind of populist support by breaking with hated politically correct taboos. If you are reading this site and getting mad about us making fun of Mayor Buttplug and the Buttbuddies, you are likely on track to lose in 2020.
