I was reading an article about Beto O’Rourke, the charismatic (but long-shot) Democratic challenger for Ted Cruz’s Senate seat this year. Toward the end, the article casually drops this quote from one of his supporters:
He reminds me of Robert Kennedy, but more so.
I can’t decide what I love most: the sentence itself, the fact that I actually get what she’s saying, or the fact that the article didn’t even feel the need to clarify.
I love you, English. Never change.
I actually voted for that guy! Beto O’Roark…not Robert Kennedy…
If he wins, you can claim credit!
Oops…spelled his name wrong. O’Rourke I think…
