His campaign for the senate against Ted Cruz in 2018 ended in failure.
His campaign for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination in 2019 ended in epic, buffonish failure.
His campaign to turn Texas blue in 2020 ended in abject, hilarious failure.
So, naturally, Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke, the undeservedly-famous deletant offspring of a fabulously wealthy family married to an even more-fabulously wealthy wife in El Paso, Texas, is now considering mounting yet another destined-to-fail campaign in 2022.
This time, Irish Bob is exploring the possibility of running for the Texas governor’s mansion, against either incumbent Gregg Abbott – who is likely to run for re-election – or against another GOP candidate should Abbott decide to bow out after two terms in office.

Here’s an excerpt from a slavishly-fawning story at the ridiculous Houston Chronicle:
Democrat Beto O’Rourke has left no doubt that he’s weighing a run for governor next year.
“You know what, it’s something I’m going to think about,” O’Rourke said in an exclusive interview on an El Paso radio station earlier this week.
So, hey, looks like we’ll have Irish Bob to kick around again in 2022. Fan girls and boys on staff at the Chronicle, the Texas Tribune, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair are no doubt already outlining their future feature stories on their punk-rocker crush.
And before anyone sends me a nasty note saying that last remark isn’t fair, let me answer in advance: Why yes, yes it is completely fair and incisively accurate, and you’re a pea-brained nitwit if you don’t agree.
That is all.
