Blinded By Arrogance and Tea, Ted Cruz Is The New Sarah Palin


Blinded By Arrogance and Tea, Ted Cruz Is The New Sarah Palin

Wow. In an interview with the Dallas News, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was asked repeatedly what heís learned. He danced around the question like his feet were on fire, but reporter Todd J. Gillman stuck to it. Finally, Cruz admitted that he was teaching those veteran Republicans a thing or two.

Sure, heís only been there for ten weeks, and while he may have picked the wrong battles and there may be very few left who will support legislation he wants to advance (should he ever actually do what heís actually being paid to do, that is), chances are slim that heíll get the backers. Heís already left scorched earth behind him and based on this interview, he hasnít learned a thing yet.

After Cruz repeatedly ignored the reporterís question about how he was going to get anything done after burning so many bridges, the Dallas News reporter asked him if heíd learned anything yet, to which Cruz responded that he has learned how defeatist Republicans are (handy that he has learned nothing about his own behavior, but plenty about others): ...

5. I have a subscription to DMN

And used to get peeved at Gillman for coming across as a propagandist for the right wing, but I've noticed in the last year that he has been calling out both parties. Cruz is a nut and everyone (with sense) knows it.

7. Ted Cruz Quotes

Being from Texas, I had to sit through last year's senate race and witness these fascinating gems during the first senate debate between Paul Sadler and Ted Cruz:

"I do think that part of the philosophy of President Obama and this administration is trying to get as many Americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power..." - Ted Cruz

"...the Obama Administration's objective of essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government to keep voting democrat is not succeeding..." - Ted Cruz

Glenn Beck would be proud.
