Column: The dumbest thing Ted Cruz said last week. Hint: It wasn't about his Mexico trip

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said something unusually ridiculous last week, even for a senator whose response to a disaster in his state was to head for Cancun.

Explaining why he plans to vote against confirming President Biden’s nominee for secretary of Health and Human Services, Cruz complained that Xavier Becerra “has no background in virology.”

“Would you hire me to remove your appendix?” the Harvard-trained lawyer asked.

The question doesn’t seem entirely relevant, but since he asked, my answer is: No. I wouldn’t trust Cruz with sharp objects under any circumstances.
