Beto is now candidate 12,324 in the dem primaries. The only reason this matters to me is that I want to insert an APS HRT into Texas and rescue his poor dog.

I heard some speculation this morning over whether or not it was actually his dog or just a dog brought in for the pictures.

Well, his name is fake, so why not have a fake dog? I wonder if his wife is provided by Stepford, Inc?

I love how the whitest Irishman ever is trying to be "Beto".

Bet that *expletive deleted*hole goes out this weekend with a lame Irish brogue.

"Beto" - just another instance of conservatives/Republicans (in the conservative commentariat, and elsewhere) refusing to understand how the Left uses language against us. We're stupid to keep calling him "Beto," when his name is Robert Francis. But we're not going to stop. We're going to keep saying "Beto," and "progressive," and "pro-choice," etc.

Also, the APS nickname policy reads, "use the individual's proper name, or don't use it at all." It doesn't make an exception for any nickname, at all. I was called out for calling the ACA "Barrycare," even though "Barry" is not the kind of insulting nickname the policy was intended for, and even though I was not talking about the man, but about the policy routinely nicknamed (here and everywhere) as "Obamacare."

So...?

So now we have to refer to Rafael Cruz, Nimrata Haley, and Willard Romney?

Also, after this thread it seems like the nickname policy may not be strongly enforced.  grin
It's kind of surprising there's no thread (until now) about the Socialist who's about to be a Congresswoman from New York. Since she has a long name most Americans can neither spell nor pronounce, I suggest we call her Bernice.

Every time I hear his name I think of an old restaurant chain.

It was an Irish/Mexican restuarant and bar called Carlos Murphys.

Except of course when related to this guy, there is no Mexican involved. For whatever the wikipedia is worth, he is 100% Irish, and his parents gave him the nickname "Beto" (used in Mexico as a nickname for the Robertos) to differentiate him from his Grandfather with the same name. Why they did that instead of the more common "Bobby" that Irish people (e.g., the Kennedys) use, who knows.

He is from the El Paso area so maybe that is why. 

The guy is a lightweight who just got through spending more money than anyone ever has in a run for a Senate seat and lost.  Why he thinks that makes him Presidential material is beyond me.  However, he was the media's favorite when running for Senate so maybe he thinks that will carry over to the national stage.

The nickname policy has been against insulting nicknames.  Using their first name, last or initials to identify them is acceptable.  Using a nickname that the person themselves uses is acceptable.

The white privilege defense

"Not only will I not say that again, but I'll be more thoughtful going forward in the way that I talk about our marriage, and also the way in which I acknowledge the truth of the criticism that I have enjoyed white privilege,"  the candidate said Friday evening in Cedar Rapids.

I wonder how the left will react to this?

https://news.yahoo.com/psychedelic-warlord-teenaged-betos-misogynistic-online-posts-013651735.html

Quote
In one text file that was dated to 1989, when OĺRourke was 16 or 17, ôPsychedelic Warlordö described a ônew creature: THE ULTRA TRENDY.ö In an over-the-top sarcastic tone, Psychedelic Warlord declared these ôultra trendiesö to be ôa cancer that might cause the death of each and every scene across the nation.ö Psychedelic Warlord went on to say that many of these ôultra trendiesö are female ôsluts.ö

ôULTRA TRENDIES are usually the Ĺscene slutsĺ that many of the menfolk admire so. They show up, get drunk with the band, and tell the lead singer, ĹI really like your music. I think itĺs a lot like the Sex Pistols. Soooů you wanna *expletive deleted*ck?ĺö Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

The writer went on to accuse these women of ôonlyö liking the Sex Pistols and the groupĺs frontman, Sid Vicious, and suggested this affinity led them to enter into abusive relationships.

ôULTRA TRENDY females hook-up with violent boyfriends because, (yeahů you guessed it) ĹHeĺs so much like Sid Vicious!ĺö Psychedelic Warlord wrote.

After describing the characteristics of these ôultra trendies,ö Psychedelic Warlord offered suggestions for how to handle these people. The ideas included encouraging interactions between the ôultra trendiesö and neo-Nazis as well as mocking their appearance.

ôTell the Nazi Skins in your area that this certain ULTRA TRENDY has AIDS. ů To kill an ULTRA TRENDY female, show her a picture of what sheĺd look like without make-up. ů Tell him or her that theyĺre completely ugly,ö Psychedelic Warlord wrote.
