(Politico)   Sens Mike Lee and Ted Cruz were no-shows at the Senate GOP's working lunch yesterday to discuss a final shutdown/default deal with the White House. Probably because they were afraid of being served as the main course   (politico.com) divider line 30

Cruz and Lee could become an obstacle to moving quickly on a fiscal deal in the Senate, where consent from all 100 senators is required for speedy action.

If it weren't for that, I wouldn't have even invited them.  Or at the very least would have made them sit at the (spoiled) children's table.

Did they serve green eggs and ham?

Perhaps some tea for the tea party?

Cruz was still trying to find a way to "mitigate the great hams" inflicted on his plate at the last Senate lunch.

We'll get plenty of turkey next month

Can someone tie them up and throw them in a closet for the next 24 hours so that they can't object? I'm sure Obama will pardon you for the kidnapping charges.

Carn: mrshowrules: chiett: Hey Drew. When did Howard Dean start being in charge of what is Green Lighted?????

The last week must be a record for TPM, Politico, Huffington Post, Slate and every other Liberal rag!

When the DNC shut-down the Government there was an equal number of greenlights for Townhall, Fox, and Brietbart.

Look it up, honest.

Should Fark be added to the list or is it already on there?


Surprisingly not there.  I think we need something more substantive to add Fark to the list.

Cruz was probably meeting with his controllers, Heritage Action, to discuss their next move.

FTA:  A Lee spokesman emailed in response to Lee skipping the lunch: "They have three [lunches] every week. He doesn't always go to each one."

Judging by their physical appearance, often all on the same day...

Senator Lee believes in Lunch Equality - No lunch is more special than another. They are all specialer.

I wonder if they served all the chickens they farked.

Paul and Cruz aren't interested in fixing anything.  They just want to be contrarians and bloviate to the press to raise their profile amongst conservatives, in the hope that it betters their chances in the 2016 primaries.

These guys are not serious about anything except self-promotion, and should be ignored.

Asked repeatedly on Monday evening whether he would object to an emerging deal in the Senate to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the federal government, Cruz declined to respond.
"We need to see what the details are," Cruz said on Monday night.


So of course the asshole skipped the farking meeting.

Are you TeaTards happy? These are the worthless slackers ruining our country, not "Obama".

Holy crap! THREE lunches? Wow, how do they manage? I have managed to fit FIVE lunches in per week(Saturday and Sunday are more 'Grazing' days, eating whenever you want...), so I guess I could be a "Super Senator" in comparison.

I'm wondering if you'll be able to plot the sell off in the Dow to seconds after Cruz stymies this.

McCain had them both duct-taped mummy-style and stuffed in Dennis DeConcini's and Ted Kennedy's old lockers in the Senate gym.

Is it even possible for Cruz to not look like he's smirking?

Eddie Adams from Torrance: Perhaps some tea for the tea party?

They don't strike me as the chamomile tea with soy milk and Stevia type. Although if Obama told them not to eat ricin...

Maybe visit the Marathon website and see how they spell it?

They were probably worried about being served the curb sandwich.

Damn, I'm getting all sorts of traction on that one.
