Beto O’Rourke is having a bad week. He’s fading in the polls, and is approaching “statistically insignificant” territory in the most recent survey of New Hampshire primary voters. His stump speech was panned by an 8th grade civics class in Iowa. THE POLITICO reported on his struggles to “organize a viable campaign.”
HORLIVKA, Donetsk People’s Republic—On an afternoon in January, I crouched behind what was left of a rotting horse, digging around in my pockets for chewing gum and amphetamines.

Beto O’Rourke had a turtle problem. The former congressman and failed Senate candidate reportedly left the campaign trail in late April to address a “family crisis” in the form of a missing turtle, aka “Baby Gus.” The family dog, Artemis, was ominously fingered as the chief suspect in the turtle’s disappearance.
