14. Friends of Hamas was an alleged Iranian political group that was reported by Breitbart News's

Ben Shapiro to have endorsed Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.

One small problem.

Before the allegations no known organization by said name was known to exist.

It's a made up Orgnization.

3. There are many nights in the past decade that Cruz has refused to be forthcoming

with journalists regarding his whereabouts. It does not necessarily mean he was having sex with prepubescent boys he bought on the black market, but he has refused to answer the question. I'm not saying these boys were ages 4 to 8 years old, but they could have been. Some of them he could have kidnapped himself and kept in his basement until they were too old for him to lust after, then he may have sold them to others in a group he may belong to that buy and trade young boys regularly on the Internet. If those boys exist, and I'm not saying that they do, they must be terribly traumatized now, some of them may have even committed suicide due to Cruz's inhumane and monstrous treatment.

9. Wizard of Oz is spinning up a Texas whirlwind that will fade just as fast, as it has no bases,

no meaning, just like a bag of dirt. Ted Cruz - windbag and dirtbag.

10. Flashback to the Fifties!

Jeez, this creep has really studied his Joe McCarthy, hasn't he?
I expected him to bring up information from a pumpkin patch, or mention the list he has in his pocket.

11. Senator Cruz, at long last, sir, have you no shame? Have you no sense of decency?



I know comparing someone trying to smear another's reputation to McCarthy is a bit cliche, but McCarthy actually has one up on Cruz. As Edward R. Murrow pointed out, McCarthy's tools were innuendo and guilt by association. Senator Cruz is just speculating that Mr. Hegel has been associated with "radical or extremist groups." He presents no evidence that this is the case and does not even offer an example of a radical/extremist group to which Mr. Hegel might be associated. Cruz is attempting to hold Hegel guilty by association without actually associating him with anyone. A least McCarthy let the world know with whom his victim was being associated.

We know that Senator Cruz is associated with a radical/extremist group: the Tea Party.

16. ...which leads me to coin a new word: Cruzify

Definition: to impugn the character by means of innuendo and/or guilt by association without any credible evidence.

The only reason Hagel's nomination was filibustered is that Ted Cruzified him.

12. Paul Sadler shootdown of Tailgunner Ted (AKA Ted the Troll)

During the Senate debates, Texas Democrat Paul Sadler left us with plenty enough ammunition to use on Cruz. That's despite frequent bailouts of Cruz by debate moderator Brad Watson of WFAA-TV in Dallas. (You'll have to excuse Watson; at the time he was trying to buy back his soul from Satan.) But really all we have to know about Toeless Ted is that, despite his big talk about guns, he's never even been hunting. Sadler also nailed Cruz for the tactic he is presently using on Hagel. That is, trying to make Hagel account for everything he's ever said and done his entire life. Sadler told Ted there was no way anyone could govern knowing "some troll" was going to come along years later with a pair of tweezers.

Ted the Troll and Brad Watson: Still trying to get Mommy's attention.

13. What a douchebag

The way he worded his sentences makes it sound like Hagel did accept funds from a foreign government. I just hope someone, somewhere uses his own words against him.
