I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
— Beck, 1993
I am staring at the ceiling and pondering the failure of the failure generation.
I hear the debate tonight is the last for Beto O’Rourke, who may not make the cut for the next one. And who knows about however many more are to come in this candidate-o-rama.
What happened with him? He is a talented politician who brought punk rock to his campaign for Senate in Texas. Yes, we have all had it with white men, yes we want a more revolutionary messenger than some guy…
It’s official: Beto O’Rourke has entered his fuck-it phase.
The former congressman and presidential hopeful didn’t mince words when talking about gun control in Thursday night’s debate. “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” he said to raucous applause. He boldly addressed the legacy of slavery in the country, and didn’t flinch before calling President Trump a white nationalist.
