Click CNN:

"Beto O'Rourke raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his presidential campaign, his campaign said Monday, in what amounts to the largest announced first-day haul of any 2020 Democratic contender to date."

If Beto can keep up this level of fund raising, he will be a force to contend with in the primaries.  I predict Julian Castro will drop out before the first primary.  I may be eating crow on my prediction Trump already has this won.  But now that Beto is national we wait and see how addictive his message really is.

I absolutely love visiting your page. If for no other reason, you provide a daily dose of comedy. I love reading your hypocritical musings about local politics. I love how you bang your fist on the table and complain about things politicians do, then turn right around and do those exact same things.

I like how you spew so much vitriol at people for being homophobes and sexists then calling someone a self-loathing lesbian and a eunuch. I love how you say you are going to call out all these local political candidates for appearing on a local podcast, then fail to call anybody out when they all appear on that podcast.

I also love all those threats you make against people, saying you have all this information, and all these "anonymous sources" giving you intelligence, yet you have to publish anything remotely close to verifiable evidence, or proof, of anything that you mention.

You keep talking about your "four person voting block" myth, and that's the reason you have poured all that cement into Juan Mendez's pedestal. You seem so desperate to be waved in to the highfalutin parties of the Brownsville and Matamoros elite. I didn't know you were such a learned restaurateur and food critic. I wonder if Juan Mendez will name a table after you at Dodici.

Now you're going to start carrying the torch for Robert Francis O'Rourke. And, of course, in typical sheep fashion, everybody ran to put a "BETO" sticker on their cars. This guy is as Hispanic as Taco Bell. Politicians always using Hispanics and Mexican-Americans to get votes, then forgetting all about us when they take office. O'Rourke is a relative unknown around the nation. You thinking "Beto" is national is just as funny as all the other stuff you spew.

I know you won't publish this. I know you won't answer this. I know you'll simply call me a troll and be as dismissive as you always are, but the simple fact is the great Bobby Wightman can't be bothered to be questioned. You either drink the Wightman Kool-Aid or you get labeled a troll.

Again, thanks for the entertainment.
