MJMaloney187: UrukHaiGuyz: MJMaloney187: clancifer: As a Texan, I sincerely apologize for sending such an asshole to Washington.  Again.

I like him. And I'm glad my vote negates yours.

Congrats on supporting an economically illiterate racist sh*tbag, I guess. You're a credit to the state.

The kind of racism you're insinuating is a total fabrication. You're deliberately being confrontational in support of a fantasy. That's called being disingenuous.

And yes, I am a credit to the State of Texas, but my heart will forever be with Louisiana, mon amour.


So you're a remedial valedictorian screwing the short bus hottie; got ya.

So back in about 1986 I had just started working as a waiter in a new
City Club in Charlotte.

One of my first shifts was a breakfast meeting that featured NC's senior senator, Jesse Helms...

As I was clearing plates and filling water, I walked past the head table and crop dusted the crap out of Mr. Helms.

It still is one of my proudest work moments.

Well if it did have 100 Jesse Helms in it, at least it would have 1 less Ted Cruz.

Cagey B: propasaurus: Something something Robert Byrd.

Someone will bring that up in all seriousness, I'm sure. Because continuing to be a racist dickbag until they put you in the ground is the same thing as changing your behavior and acknowleding your mistakes.


Hey, if George Wallace  deserves a pass for in his post assassination attempt years renouncing his former rhetoric, apologizing to those he hurt and trying to make amends by undergoing a race change and becoming a stand-up commedian, then I think we can give Byrd one too.

I love the rich irony that Senator Cruz wants more of a guy who would not have tolerated his presence - in the country, let alone in the Senate.

If Jesse Helms had gotten his way, Rafael & his wingnuttier father would be harvesting sugar cane for Batista & Lansky's heirs.

Two days, two gaffes.

Sounds like Ted got some bad internal polls OR realized just how many light years of corporate dong he'll have to slobber to raise enough money to run and said to himself "I want out, but I don't want to be all Paliny."

Zombie senators.


How long until lobbyists begin harvesting our brains to bribe these undead legislators?

Dr Dreidel: IIRC, Cruz was quoting...someone. Sure, he agreed with the cite, but it's not like Cruz came up with that on his own. And he did explain why he wanted 100 Jesse Helmseseses in the Senate - to stop the creep of socialism because old white guys rule and, in this case at least, drool.

DamnYankees: What's interest about this is, as TFA says, Trent Lott's career basically ended for saying something similar. This Cruz quote is barely a blip and it won't cost him anything. The GOP seems to be getting MORE racist over time.
