Texas was warned: if you strike Beto O’Rourke down in the midterms, he shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. Newsweek is covering his blog posts as if he were president in an alternate America; the Washington Post’s two “conservative” columnists, Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin, are urging him to “study up, travel and show he can pass the commander in chief test.”
The best part of The Hill’s tweet about Beto O’Rourke is the typo: “Beto O’Rourke is fireball.”

Sounds like movie trailer guy needs to read this headline. “BETO O’ROURKE IS……FIREBALL!!!!”

A fireball? The fireball? A superhero named Fireball? What kind of Tarzan headline is this? https://t.co/l9htzAxIvI

He should choose Booker as his running mate. Then they can be "Fireball and Spartacus."

More like a flash in the pan!

More like a dumpster fire

He already flamed out.

He is absolutely on fire in the pic. A real fireball.

Yes, like a meteor before it disintegrates.

He’s a hemorrhoid.

Fireball… Is that what he was drinking during his DUI and subsequent attempt to flee the scene? pic.twitter.com/qgmzjJYOke

Fireball, vodka, whatever you put in front of him before he heads for the car.

Thinking of O’Rourke as Fireball Whiskey is a great analogy. Very popular among young people, message is palatable/goes down smooth BUT the older/wiser you get the hangovers get worse and you gag just hearing someone mention it.

Cheap whiskey with candy flavors added. Actually an impressive definition.

Fireball? More like a Swedish Fish. Initial excitement followed by immediate regret.

Beto O'Rourke is a goofball, but not all Dems are sold. @TheOnion

Fireball? Try Soy Boy.

Beto = cough medicine

Beto is just another Obama. I'm surprised so many Texans supported this empty chair.

He’s a flashy and dynamic quarterback surrounded by a team of really old and tired ideas that can’t pull their weight anymore. If Democrats want him for another losing attempt at a title, they will end the season in disappointment again.

Ladies and gentlemen… I give you the current state of “journalism.” 🙄

All that #carpetbagger money didn’t help him, so now they are having buyers remorse.
— REDEYE (@redeye80) December 10, 2018
Why not??? He's sooo dreamy!!!

Check the polls: the Democrats are still hung up on Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Is Biden a fireball?
