[Ed. – A harder question than it initially appears to be.]

I wish I could say that the worst thing about John Hickenlooper’s CNN town hall on Wednesday night was the part where he talked about watching Deep Throat with his mom. The former governor of Colorado, who is one of roughly 173 declared candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, explained that the porno-with-mom thing was not an accident. …

Why are Democrats so weird? Only a few days after his long-shot candidacy had begun to attract some interest from the mainstream press, Andrew Yang came out strongly against circumcision, surely one of the most pressing political and social issues of our time. …

Meanwhile, there is Beto. I don’t particularly care that in 1988 the young Robert Francis O’Rourke posted some erotic verses about cows (“Oh, Milky wonder, sing for us once more, / Live your life, everlusting [sic] joy” is one of the only bits I can quote on this family website) online. I didn’t even know until yesterday that there was such a thing as “online” in 1988.
