Attacking Beto O’Rourke
The Wheeling News-Register gives the Green New Deal and Ocasio-Cortez a day off
Has O’Rouke won the Democratic nomination? (Did I fall asleep for 18 months?) And what happened to Ocasio-Cortez? (I thought that Ogden papers were required to run an attack on her and her ideas every day.) Wow! Even Hillary Clinton back in 2016 was never attacked four times on one editorial page.
There is not much substance in these syndicated columns -- the headlines, for the most part, explain the content. The worst is clearly Kathleen Parker’s whose attack is mostly in the form of condescension:
I confess that I like O'Rourke as the person he actually is - a dreamy-eyed Libran with whom I happen to share a birthday (Sept. 26), if a few years apart. He also shares my husband's high school alma mater, Woodberry Forest. In a star-gazing, palm-reading, karma-kind-of-way, he's a pretty irresistible combo, but mostly for dating.
That’s some mighty serious political analysis, Kathleen!
As for the political cartoon, O’Rourke is attacked because he’s been soliciting campaign donations. I’ll bet Republicans never do that.
