Failed Texas Senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is a rockstar to many people.
At one point, he was actually in a couple of bands.
One was called was “Fragile Gang.” The other, “The Sheeps.”
You can’t make that stuff up.
“Our persona was that we were a very famous band from New Zealand and we didn’t want people to know our true identities—that’s why we wore masks,” Ailbhe Cormack, the band’s bassist, tells Mother Jones. “I think people followed along with the mystery of it, but they knew who we were.”
During a concert, O’Rourke appeared on stage in a sheep mask and a onesie.
The Sheeps had a short run. The band played three shows around El Paso between 2003 and 2004, “just for a lark,” according to Cormack. The group never toured. At its final show, in 2004, at a local club called the T-Lounge, band members wore brown paper bags over their heads—because some members had lost their sheep masks.
The costumes apparently varied.
Here’s another video:
O’ Rourke, who said he won’t but probably will run for president in 2020, thinks America needs to start over with new governing documents.
Throughout the two-hour interview — which was often interrupted by bystanders urging him to run for president — O’Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope that the United States will soon dramatically change its approach to a whole host of issues and a dismal suspicion that the country is now incapable of implementing sweeping change.
Beto: “I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work. Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”
O’Rourke is vehemently opposed to building a wall on the southern border.
When asked how America can go about solving the crisis, Beto offered a poignant response: “I don’t know.”
Fellow former Texas polittican Julian Castro is running for president in 2020, undoubtedly with a goal of undoing everything good Donald Trump has done since taking office.
On Saturday, Julián Castro officially announced his intention to run for president in 2020. Castro served as President Obama’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary from 2014 – 2017. Prior to his work in the Obama administration, Castro was the mayor of San Antonio, Texas.
Castro, a far-left progressive, joins Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, and California Senator Kamala Harris in announcing 2020 bids.
Former RINO Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) wants a conservative to challenge President Trump in 2020.
Heck, Flake might even do the challenging himself.
Wouldn’t that be fun?
Does the guy honestly think he’d stand a chance?
Flake: “The country needs to be reminded what it means to be conservative and what it means to be decent.”
"Somebody does need to challenge the President," from within the GOP in 2020, outgoing Republican Sen. @JeffFlake, who did not rule out running himself, tells Jim @Acosta. "[T]he country needs to be reminded what it means to be conservative… and what it means to be decent." pic.twitter.com/6zi0S8z6ig
