As I’ve noted in the past, Beto O’Rourke has only two notable accomplishments under his belt: getting away with fleeing the scene of a drunk-driving accident, and getting away with transforming himself from a white dude into a Latino. He couldn’t win a literal popularity contest against Ted Cruz — I repeat, Ted Cruz — but he won the hearts of his most important constituency. No, not women or minorities or the LGBTQRST community. The press! They love this guy. They can’t get enough of him. Seems like every week there’s another glowing, worshipful magazine profile of Beto. Did you know he was in a rock band?
