Wouldn’t it be more accurate to write that, like a touring rock star the Texas Governor.....

How does “aging rock star” make sense.

I’m sure the author didn’t think of this when he wrote it but the comparison is apt. Let’s take the Rolling Stones as an example.

1. Everywhere they go, people flock to see them.
2. When they perform, enormous sums of money are given to their cause.
3. People listen to what they say.
4. Critics (usually hipster types) complain that they’re crap and they don’t understand what people see in them.
5. They have fun.

I’d say it’s an accurate analogy. Just not in the way the writer thinks.
