Never let a student grade his own work

Never let a student grade his own work

After last night’s debate, online polls shocked everyone in the news media by choosing Tulsi Gabbard as the winner.  Apparently the Drudge Report poll had her running away with the thing – nearly 30 points ahead of second place Elizabeth Warren.

Meanwhile, the media seems to be in agreement that Robert Francis O’Rourke didn’t distinguish himself in either English or Spanish.

And yet, when asked what grade he would assign his debate performance, Beto reached for the stars.

And this, boys and girls, is exactly why you never let a student grade his own work.

He gives himself an A?  Based on what exactly?

Now, maybe it was different for people who watched the entire debate (I did not).  But based on the few clips I saw, Beto’s grade of A seems a bit, well, sanguine.

Unless of course he’s grading on a curve – a very, very steep curve.

To quote Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Beto is God’s gift to the bell curve.

Then again, maybe for Beto, compared to his previous forays on the debate stage, his bilingual babbling last night was the best he’s ever done.  In which case, I’m sorry, Beto.

Or maybe, as Jim Treacher pointed out on Twitter, Beto really is trying to be the all-white Obama.

But if that’s the case Beto overshot.  Barry only gave himself a “solid B+.”

    The statement in the article where an opinion is offered that says Beto is trying to be an all white Obama doesn’t sound quite right. I have very few positive things that I can say about former president Obama, but I do not believe that Obama belonged to a hacking group called the Cult of the Dead Cow when he was younger. I do not remember Obama stating that he fantasized about running over children with his car. Did I miss the article where the former president got busted trying to flee the scene of a DWI crash? I also do not remember reading about Obama going out into the desert to eat dirt to regenerate himself after he lost an election. Can Beto say the same?

      If you’re taking a post on a satire site this seriously, you need to find the fun in life, dear.

    Didn’t Oblama also give himself an “A” for his fundamental transformation of America as Pres (which continues as he claims credit for Trump’s booming economy and continues his deep-state machinations to undermine the current administation) ?

    Robert Francis O’Rourke’s comment that children needed to lead on the issues of gun control and climate change last night can only mean one thing—that Robert Francis agrees with me that children are smarter than any of the candidates on that stage.

    I agree. “A” for Asshole.
