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+.”
