fun fact: all of the people more terrible than Ted Cruz voters are named Ted Cruz

Just break one of his fingers every time he blocks a diplomat, and he'll stop.  We should be discouraging bad behavior, and assholes like him only learn from pain.
 
2021-07-21 10:49:51 AM  
It's all he knows how to do.
 
2021-07-21 10:50:49 AM  
I'm shocked to learn that the reason he's being an asshole (this time) is largely for the benefit of Russia. Shocked, I tell you.

FTA and sounds like a pretty fair definition of his time in politics:

"A toxic brew of personality politics, hyperpartisanship and political grandstanding"

If you run into one asshole, that means you ran into Ted Cruz. That's a crappy way to start your day.

When everyone you run into is an asshole...

Simple solution: Keep the Senate in session doing nothing but State nominees instead of going on summer break.

Break starts when the last nominee passed out of Committee gets a vote.
 
2021-07-21 10:58:15 AM  
The fact that the Senate allows "holds" is yet another reason why it should be abolished.

The Senate has a proud tradition of beating its members with canes to make them shut up.

Put me on the jury for that trial. Not guilty on all charges before opening arguments.
 
2021-07-21 11:04:40 AM  
When Ted Cruz dies, there will be much rejoicing.

Hopefully that day comes soon.

Wookie Milson: I'm shocked to learn that the reason he's being an asshole (this time) is largely for the benefit of Russia. Shocked, I tell you.


No, he's being anti-Russia here.  He wants the US to sanction Germany for approving a new natural gas pipeline from Russia to Germany.

Better solution: for each filibuster or blocked nomination, the filibustero or blocker must stick a finger in this:

The GOP is an enemy of the state
 
2021-07-21 11:14:11 AM  
Every national election, the rest of the country should be able to vote out one senator from another state.

Some senators are just dead wood in need of pruning. They could use campaign funds to air "Don't throw me out, I can't do anything else and got nowhere to go".

It would be like a selective term limit.

Something is wrong when one person holds everything up. And does so repeatedly.

Real question - can't he be removed from this committee and replaced with someone who sees the long gain of getting these folks installed into working positions to fix this mess of a country this jacka$$ forced us into?

My understanding is that any Senator can place a hold regardless of committee.

Play the game you are in... that is to say once the R's have the reigns - do anything and everything to never cooperate, to never capitulate, and to never compromise an inch with\for them. We can all take our farking balls home and just be at odds with each other as far as I GAF. Fark it all... we can all just be an island unto our own.

It means you accidently walked into a republican meeting.

That's pretty much on brand. At this point, trying to make up reasons is more trouble than it's worth, because when you lie about your reasons, some media vulture swoops in with the truth, and then it's a thing where you look like a liar and obstructionist assh*le, so Teddy Bear has decided to just skip a step.

He's trying to be efficient here, sheeple.

Another simple solution: Just wait until the weather in Texas gets a little sketchy and once again he flees the country.

Imagine the uproar if the Trump admin had lifted a sanction against Russia, or a Russian company (especially one that Obama originally created)

It would've been called treason.
