Mrtraveler01: But some of those comments on the NY Times website...yikes. I still can't figure out how people can praise Joe McCarthy. I thought he was an international laughing stock.


Yep. I noticed that too. My assumption is was organized and paid for by the GOP. The average NYT reader is not a professional Republican shill. I wonder how many times a GOP shill needs to write "the government is broke" in order to receive their paycheck?

I figured this got posted on Free Republic or Drudge Report. Because you can see that the right-wing, tea-party-esque comments come in spurts.

You have a stronger stomach for derp than me. I saw that first nauseating sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich then left.

GAT_00: I'd just like to point out again this guy was kicked out of office 16 years ago for being too crazy.  Among the crazy, he said Clinton wanted to destroy Waco because it would teach gun owners a "lesson" and after OKC, he was forwarded information which he immediately sent to the NRA, but only sent to the FBI two hours later.


Wrong crazy Texas a-hole.  Cruz is the one who accuses everyone else of being a communist who bears anti-American sentiments, while he himself wasn't born in the United States and who's father fought for Fidel Castro in the communist revolution to oust the American Friendly Batista regime.

Mrtraveler01: But what many forget to remember is that Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban father and an American mother. Unless they change the law to where he would be elligible for president (which would be hilarious after all the birth certificate nonsense Obama put up with), he can't be president.


More to the point, his father fought on the Communist/Castro side in Cuba.   If Ted Cruz had it his way, Ted Cruz would have never came to America.

Ted Cruz? That Ted Cruz? You ought to see his CalgaryAlberthacertificate.

Is this the same Ted Cruz that expressed his deep and abiding love for putting his penis into livestock on a regular basis?  As far as I know he has NEVER denied his bestiality proclivities.

I'm just asking questions here, people.

Did Ted Cruz rape and murder a young girl in 1990? I'm just asking questions.

No. He's too young. But I'm sure the Koch brothers never expected their stool sample would become a US senator.

I think it would be pretty funny if a reporter asked Ted Cruz a question in Spanish.

Ted Cruz a big fat fraud.

There has been some attempt to rehabilitate his image, at least among the Teatards. Ann Coulter wrote a hagiography of McCarthy a few years back.

McCarthy.  Protector of the American Dream!

said Senator Claire McCaskill, Democrat of Missouri. "In this country we had a terrible experience with innuendo and inference when Joe McCarthy hung out in the United States Senate, and I just think we have to be more careful."


Wow, that kind of frustrating understatement would suggest that the Dems have no real plans to call parasites like Cruz on their BS in any meaningful way.

because they can't without legitimizing him even more to the people he panders to. It's a catch-22. If they let him go on, he's a smarmy asshat that makes them look bad to his support structure without the aid of anything near fact. If they shoot down his asshattery with fact, he is a persecuted hero valiantly fighting the NWO or whatever else.

Ted Cruz, the Tea Party, and the Republicans need to heed the words of the man who brought the decline of McCarthy's witch hunt:

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men."

-Edward R. Murrow

He's doing a better job of marginalizing the GOP with mainstream America than any rebuttal ever could.

"Please proceed, Mr. Senator ......."
