That's the nicest Fark Off Ted I've ever heard!

Do you know how jealous I am right now, watching that from Southern Trumpistan? Just a video of a county executive expressing his belief in objective reality and demonstrating long-term memory makes me nostalgic.

Cruz is a parody of a Captain Planet villain.

Man, Jeff Daniels really has the accent down.

He even sounds exactly like him.

To say that today I'm embarrassed Cruz represents Texas would be false because it tacitly implies i was at some point not embarrassed that Cruz represents Texas.

TBF can you name a Republican that isn't a parody of a Captain Planet villain?

Or is it a young Chris Matthews?


/have we ever seen Chris Matthews and Jeff Daniels in the same place at the same time?

When the show was being made, they intentionally made the villains so over the top so kids didn't lump in their parents not recycling as horrible people.  Little did they know that some people watching the villains thought they were amazing "How-to" guides for the future.

I will never understand why being asked to be a better person gets such backlash from people.  Is it an ego thing?

Possibly Arnold Schwarzenegger, but I'm not sure if he qualifies as a Republican anymore.

I can only assume that conservatives just don't watch TV, or they only watch Fox News and Cops or something.  Because I don't know how you can watch 90% of world media, root for the bad guys, and not see the problem with what you're doing.

Then again, their "ideal" leader saw the majority of the planet cheer that he lost last November and at no point did he have even a speck of self-awareness to acknowledge just how hated him and his actions are.

Cruz needs to learn one of the immutable truths of America:

Don't fark with Pittsburgh.

Ted Cruz moved your parking chair. Ted Cruz is the guy who slows down in the tunnel. Ted Cruz will put Hunts in a Heinz bottle. When Ted Cruz wants a "good pierogi" he opens a box of Mrs. Ts... and then microwaves them.
 
2021-01-22 1:49:24 PM  
Has the PA Lt Gov responded to Cruz yet? I would prefer his response to be a folding chair upside Cruzs head though.

Pure ego. They think they're perfect and everyone else has to either be like them or submit to their perfection. It also usually masks a deep-seated fear or inadequacy they have.

Ask any NFL team who's done something as insignificant as messing with a Terrible Towel.
Karma, as they say, is a biatch.

To be fair, the Steelers farked themselves.

Here's what I'm wondering. If  Ted Cruz, Gym Jordan, Tom Cotton, and Marsha Blackburn, to name a few, want to be the new reality-denying, cruelty-inflicting, White Nationalist dictator with whom Trump's base falls deeply, madly in love, what will they do about the impeachment vote? Obviously, they don't want Trump to run again, which he couldn't, if convicted. But on the other hand, will his base accept anyone who voted to convict him? On the other other hand, did promise to make it 1947 in America again, and he did fail. So...?

You know, there some are deep political divides in Allegheny County, but we can come together to give a hardy f*ck off to some nebby jagoff from Texas.
 
2021-01-22 2:32:46 PM  
Just want to say I feel the same way about Ted and I live in Texas

Peter von Nostrand: To say that today I'm embarrassed Cruz represents Texas would be false because it tacitly implies i was at some point not embarrassed that Cruz represents Texas.


Cruz is no Texan. No self respecting Texan would let an arsehole like trump get away with insulting his wife and father. Also, any Texan still supporting Cruz after the stunt he pulled deserves nothing but disdain.
 
2021-01-22 2:43:22 PM  
That was very fair, accurate and appropriate. Now, to hear it from every township worth a schitt in the US would be nice too.

Hey Ted Cruz, if you can hear this, go fark yourself to death.
(I'm not as nice as that guy who was interviewed)
