Texas Senate candidate Beto ORourke (D) on Monday apologized for writing a review of a Broadway musical in 1991 that detailed the actresses phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.
Politico on Monday resurfaced the review ORourke wrote when he was 19 years old for the Columbia Daily Spectator, the universitys student newspaper.
The review from the Oct. 10, 1991 edition of the paper was written under the byline Robert ORourke and offers a sharp critique of the musical The Will Rogers Follies.
ORourke criticized the perma-smile actresses whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.
He wrote that the entire performance was one of the most glaring examples of the sickening excesses and moral degradations of our culture.
O'Rourke said the show was produced and directed in such a showy, glitzy, and ultimately, tacky manner, that one cannot help feeling disgusted throughout the show.
The musical went on to win six Tony Awards, Politico noted.
ORourke issued an apology to Politico on Monday after the story was published.
"I am ashamed of what I wrote and I apologize. There is no excuse for making disrespectful and demeaning comments about women," he said after the story published.
Politico was first notified ORourkes review by an opponent of his Senate campaign against incumbent Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
“There is no excuse for making disrespectful and demeaning comments about women...”
I agree. That “perma-smile” thing is pretty snarky. But I would imagine that his compliments that follow would smooth over his snarky comment.
Good grief. He apologizes for his single best literary effort, the only thing that might garner an ounce of respect from the common man.
That was before he assumed his Fake Mexican name. What a scam he is pulling on gullible Lefties who are giving him millions of dollars in a Fake Campaign, just as Wendy Davis did.
Homo freak Fake Mexican.
See, you mean-old conservatives, he apologized! Why can’t we continue to focus on things a juvenile Kavanaugh was doing?
(Napoleon Dynamite) “Gawd.”
Does Beto have a Foley implant.
Bobby Frank the Fake ping.
Irish Frank the Letch.
Stick a fork in the phony Hispanic. Maybe he can pal around with the the phony Irish Christian Bono.
Ah, yes. Focus on the -important- disqualifiers about the socialist.
>>He wrote that the entire performance was one of the most glaring examples of the sickening excesses and moral degradations of our culture. (1991)
what did Betozos say about this year’s press corp roast of Trump’s staff?
what did Betojuice say about this year’s F-bomb tony award broadcast? MTV Awards?
Are we ALL now going to have to apologize for our occasional lapses into lewd and lascivious behavior in the ‘80s and ‘90s?
If so, I hope the members of Congress get the party started.
These would be capital crimes, if he were conservative.
He had the fake Mexican name while in Foss El Paso Pussy cats
At least judging from the sleeve art I could find online before his Senate run.
So he’s a fag?
Are we going to scrutinize every high school and college comment or activity? What about those that went on beach weeks?
they’ve got to find some “must’ve been” moment they can hang his loss on when he failed to turn Texas pinko.
Democrat NEVER admit it is their position that turns voters off.
Someone in the know is digging up a lot of old dirt on certain democrats.
I wonder who it is?....
