ABC News' Paula Faris is hot for Bobby "Beto" O'Rourke

Media bias in favor of Democrats at ABC News? Come on, that is just silly.  

Although to be fair to Paula Faris, even Mike Cernovich recognizes Beto O'Rourke's energy/mojo. Cernovich is right. Robert O'Rourke has charisma. The Democrats are desperate for a candidate (their bench is pretty thin). If the demographics in Texas were more in his favor, O'Rourke would be a front runner. The Democrats are looking for their next Obama (and it sure isn't Alexandria Ocasio Cortez or Kyrsten Sinema). 

O'Rourke is a self creation. O'Rourke gave himself the name "Beto" to make himself more appealing in Texas politics and Latino voters. Even if Beto loses to Ted Cruz in this race (which I think he will) he probably will not be a one time phenomenon like Wendy Davis aka Abortion Barbie. We will be seeing him again. Ironically though, Betomania is sucking the Democrat air (and money) from other more competitive races around the country this cycle (so he is probably in the short term helping the Republicans).
