As I predicted yesterday, “Beto” O’Rourke’s presidential roll-out wasn’t greeted with as much adulation as he expected. While those who vote for Presidents based on “charisma” were dazzled, even some prominent liberals are skeptical that a brief term in the House, a losing Senate race and mad skateboard skillz are enough qualifications to be President. Nancy Pelosi was pressed to name a “signature accomplishment” of O’Rourke’s and came up empty (I heard that he did get a bill passed to rename a courthouse, proving that he is really good at coming up with better names for things than they started out with.)
There was even this brutal but hilariously spot-on assessment, from liberal journalist Michael Tracey, formerly of Young Turks...
But here’s the strongest sign yet that “Beto” may not be ready for the national stage, and it’s today’s Must-See Video. No, I don’t mean his announcement video, although you have to see that to fully appreciate the other one (also, see if you think, as I did, that it seems odd how he talks on and on, hyperactively spewing verbiage like a Word Salad Shooter, while his wife never utters a syllable. She just stares intently at his left ear, as if pondering whether a spot on his lobe is a speck of chocolate or a mole that needs to be looked at.)
I mean the other video of “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon parodying Beto’s video. It’s not merely hilarious, it’s shocking. After two years of turning late night comedy shows into DNC infomercials, a host has finally made fun of a Democratic media star. Beto may be in serious trouble if even the fawning leftist late night shows can’t resist mocking his schtick. I guess as a former “SNL” cast member, Fallon knows when someone is Not Ready for Prime Time.
Fallon will likely be blasted by liberals for straying off the plantation, the way he was for “normalizing” Donald Trump by talking to him as if he were a (gasp!) human being. If so, let’s hope he stands up to it. The latest crop of wet-behind-the-ears, know-it-all leftists are crying out to be parodied. Restoring some balance to these shows might actually Make Late Night Comedy Great Again.
