Ted Cruz. He is multi-talented. He can talk and piss me off at the same time.
The good news is that the Senate slapped him upside the head.
After the Senate voted to end debate on a resolution to fund the government, Cruz tried to procedural move to bring up one that wouldn’t fund Planned Parenthood. His colleagues blocked him, even though senators are routinely granted votes on such measures even if they’re destined to fail. In other words, it’s a swift parliamentary smack in the face.
Anything in Cruz’s face would be an improvement.
They not only blocked him, only one senator even agreed with him.
So, like the two year old sitting in a high chair, he began to pound the tray with his spoon and bellow for a whole damn hour.
An hour. An hour of caterwauling in a mostly empty senate chamber. Let me tell you how bad it got. Even though he was smashing his fellow Republicans, senate Democrats voted to make him stop.
Martyring himself on the cross of idiocy, Cruz painted himself as victim.
“The Democrats are objecting to my speaking further. And both the Democrats and Republican leadership are objecting to the American people speaking further. I yield the floor,” Cruz said quietly.
Yeah, Ted, the only damn thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is that you’re a complete nincompoop.
You will never be President but you have a pretty good shot at being a televangelist.
