Quote
“I can't believe that the rough ridin' Penetrators are on there,” he said excitedly.

“Now I like him so much more. It sounds so vain or kind of vapid, but now I'm like, ‘Man, I can't believe he has really impeccable taste in music,’”
...
“I consider myself a very romantic punk rocker, and this playlist screams of just, like, a total romantic,” she said. “This is a punk-timistic playlist. It’s a feel-good playlist for people who still love to rock.”
...
“Something just rubs me the wrong way about, like, a white man standing on a countertop saying, ‘I was born for this.’ I don't know, it just seems really entitled and obnoxious, and not punk,”
...
“I would definitely get along with the person 100%, and the fact that he's running for president is crazy,” he said. “You can tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to. And this is a damn, damn good playlist.”

good job of townhalling by beto.  although i saw the townhall he did the night before too, and it was a little better.  hopefully lots of people saw the cnn one.

i haven't seen how much of this aired on face the nation (hopefully a good bit), but i highly recommend that anyone with even the slightest interest in voting for beto watch the full interview.  the interviewer did a good job on pressing beto for detail, and especially the first 10-15 minutes focused on immigration were really good.  the back half, discussing some foreign policy was also interesting.

running with beto, covering the 2018 senate campaign is available on hbo starting today.  very excited to watch, myself, for obvious reasons.  it has gotten good reviews, so even non beto fans should find it interesting.

Is there anything more sys like than latching on to some impossible dream of a candidate, coach, or occurrence and then brow beating us with it online for months on end.
it’s not like I’m tired of WINNING, but dude, let me catch my breath.

i think buttigieg participated in an interview or some sort of interaction with a couple or radio or some other sort of media personalities and somehow they got him to produce a visual that is not something that will help him.

It’s so refreshing to being back where that kind of stuff is considered damaging to a campaign.

Yeah I'm not a Pete fan by any means but honestly that's probably fine given who it's with. (I'll watch the video later)

This is a pretty good interview with Desus and Mero where they talk about interviewing politicians at some point :

this 15 minute interview is the best i've heard from beto.  we're a country that elected donald rough ridin' trump, so eff if i understand this country, but it is difficult for me to understand how anyone could hear this and not conclude that beto should be our president.
