It is not something I enjoy doing, but it is essential for all of us to keep in mind that the opponents we face are not very serious individuals. I apologize in advance for the length of this post.
Beto O'Rourke is making a feeble effort to run for governor of Texas at this time, and it is embarrassing to watch. After coming so close to defeating Ted Cruz for the Senate four years ago, O'Rourke sought for the Democratic nomination in 2020 and is apparently still convinced that he can win a statewide election in Texas. In 2018, he ran for office during what was anticipated to be a favorable year for Democrats but ultimately was unsuccessful due to his far left stance.
O'Rourke's predicament arises from the fact that he has bought into his own publicity. The media portrayed this "Kennedy-esque" candidate as the future leader of the Democratic Party; he was portrayed as a young, hip, and profanity-loving individual who enjoyed skateboarding. However, he has suffered a significant loss of credibility on the national stage, and as a result, he is hoping to make a comeback in the state of Texas.
Unfortuitously, this is where our tale for today starts.
According to reports from Fox News, O'Rourke is trying to use social media in an effort to increase voter turnout.
And despite the fact that O'Rourke has a history of doing cringe-worthy things, such as the time he live-streamed himself getting dental work done, I was in no way prepared for this at all.
Now is your opportunity to avert your gaze.
This very second, in this same location.
Do you still plan on staying? You've been warned.

Just… Just meet his gaze for a moment.
It is actually impossible for me to know if Beto is attempting to woo young people or whether he is trying to hide the pain in his knees that he is obviously experiencing right now since he is too old to be engaging in activities of this nature. It's possible that the former is intended, but it certainly comes off as the latter.
In 2024, I will cast my vote for the candidate who is successful in pressuring the FEC to prohibit candidates from performing TikTok dances.
