FlashHarry: does anyone like ted cruz? anyone?


Teabaggers seem to.  So if you were to refine your question somewhat and ask "Does anyone who is not retarded actually like Ted Cruz," I'm pretty sure the answer would be no.

Someone submitted a "Clod yells at old man" headline a couple of days ago relating to Cruz taking a swipe at McCain, so Subby isn't exactly being original.

But the concept is so good it deserves a green light.

Lol enough to give link vote. Good one.

Here's one from last year's VP debate, with a different clod and old man, of course.

Well played, subby. I like the cut of your jibe.

Looks like the republican civil war has gone from cold to hot. The 2014 republican primaries are going to be hilarious.

I love how Teabaggers can embrace Ted Cruz but utterly loathe President Obama.  That's some quality cognitive dissonance right there.

McCain said lawmakers shouldn't "give up our efforts to repair Obamacare"

"Repair"? Have I missed something?

They want to appoint a private sector oversight board for the death panels.

And so a broken and tarnished politician tries to leave a legacy behind that doesn't consist solely of Sarah Palin and implying Arabs cannot be decent human beings.

Just when you think the right-wing clown car has finished disgorging these lying, hateful parasites some new low-life slithers out the exhaust pipe for his turn as the demagogue-du jour.

Someone was retweeting all the Ted Cruz supporters. I know this might shock you, but it was pretty much, Thank God for Ted Cruz and Jesus this and Jesus that and well, you get the idea. Lots of fundamentalist Christians seem to like him, for some reason.
 
2013-09-25 11:24:14 PM  
Congratulations.  you've managed to piss off one of the most powerful people in the Senate.  i'm sure that won't ever come back to haunt you.

Goddamn it, McCain, that's... shockingly reasonable, actually.

I knew he read Green Eggs & Ham but did not til late today that he actually compared Obamacare to green eggs and ham, you know the thing the protagonist maintains he will never like UNTIL HE TRIES IT.

Ted Cruz is still talking.

You wonder if any of his staff members tried to warn him about that or they just giggled behind his back?

If the world had any sense of justice, Ted Cruz would be thrown into a vat of raw sewage.

I'm almost afraid one of them will do something because they think they're "the sword of God" and "Their faith will be their shield".

I think this because some kids in my neighborhood were attending some sort of religious zealot training until their parents wised up and realized there were raising little jihadists crusaders....

He's already a House Republican. Doubt he'd notice the difference.

To be fair GE&H requires a surprisingly high level of reading comprehension, if he was confused by the Cat in the Hat then I could understand criticizing him,

I kinda wish only one of the crazies would run in 2016. Santorum, Cruz, and Paul are going to cancel votes out and we will end up with Guy Whitey again.
 
2013-09-26 12:18:10 AM  
So Cruz, taking a page right out of Hannah Arendt, then makes the first reference to Hitler, thereby controlling the conversation that would instantly undo him if somebody else had invoked it first. McCain, either unable to turn it around into a serious discussion of facticity, or else advised by idiots who privilege optics over content, does not use the opportunity to talk about the dangers of governing by contradictory actions. SIGH.
 
2013-09-26 12:23:19 AM  
Mcshiat Stain a hero?! Wow, that's a farkin reach. Cruz was elected by Texans to do his part to bring this country back to the laws of a constitutional republic. We're all smart enough to read the plain language of the 10th amendment and realize that o-care clearly violates this supreme law of the land.. I can respect him as much as I can respect Bernie Sanders. Neither wear a mask and both represent their constituents well.

Hell, at this point I can't even think of a Guy Whitebread who is left within the party that could survive the primaries.

The 2016 Republican primary is going to be a dozen hyenas chewing the marrow from the weakest pack member.

I saw something earlier about how Rush Limbaugh is yelling at Fox News, and Brit Hume in particular, for not liking Ted Cruz.

This is almost artful in its concern. This was poetic.

I don't get it. One respects the law and the other is a war mongering, puppet that is no better than Bush. Matter if fact, he worse than Bush was. Cognitive dissonance?! Any intelligent informed individual still standing behind Obama is a victim of this!!

I don't know if he has mellowed with age or if he has simply ran out of farks to give. But it seems like McCain is bringing a lot less derp to the table than he used to.

Of course, the more likely answer is that his derp is weak in comparison to the weapons-grade whargarbl that people like Cruz are trotting out. But, for just a few fleeting moments, I'd like to enjoy my dream of a Republican who has actually learned something.
