Ah yes, when you can't stand on your issues and record, attack the person.  But then again, that's par for the course with most politicians nowadays.

I love that they rhymed "guns" with "Texans".  And that jingle will be in my head all f*cking day.

...so Teddy Bear wants to be the REAL Hispanic choice, despite desperately trying to distance himself from his OBVIOUS immigrant roots...so he's got that going for him. And supporting a platform that tends to demonize immigrants that hit some racist notes. Yup, Teddy Bear is taking this seriously. Someone is trying to take his jorb...

So does anyone other that Ted think that, with his record on things like immigration, trying to make inroads with the Hispanic community in Texas is just throwing good money after bad?

The song is bad, and the nickname thing is stupid, but the worst part of that ad is hearing Ted Cruz's voice at the end.

I've been saying that it's basically trolling what Trumpers imagine liberals are like (basically 50% 1960s hippie and 50% Tumblrista from about 2016) and basking in how "triggered" they'd totally be if they ever saw it, but your version is a lot more concise.

Ted Cruz has precisely one redeeming quality; he's a big fan of the Simpsons.

He mangles a few quotes a little, and is terrible with voices, but he's definitely familiar with the source material.

Meh, he's just yet another 80s high school dork who endlessly quoted Hitchhiker's Guide and Monty Python. Which are, of course, the keys to deciphering the Zodiac letters.

I'm noticing a pattern here where conservative cartoonists seem to miss that the whole point of a cartoon is to be concise and snappy.

This guy leaves page-long screeds, that conservative artist working for a major-ish paper that retired a few years ago (name escapes me right now) pretty much had a four-panel minimum while most ed cartoons are one, and Ben Garrison notoriously labels absolutely everything in his incredibly overstuffed cartoons.

/Counterpoint: "This Modern World" makes "Cathy" look as silent as "Henry," although it isn't really meant to be a conventional editorial cartoon

During the Ned Flanders segment, Ted glances down and you can see the bald spot he's covering up.

Poor Ted, maybe his handlers can mold him a new humon skull because he does not have a good head shape to be bald.

Now Cruz's allies have picked up on the same thread. Jeff Roe, a Republican strategist who served as Cruz's campaign manager during the 2016 presidential election, tweeted a side-by-side photo of O'Rourke signing "Robert" on a legal court document but "Beto" on a congressional letter.

Roe went on to say that O'Rourke penned college papers as Robert and rowed crew under his birth name as well - seemingly trying to poke holes in O'Rourke's explanation of his name as simply a childhood nickname.


Yeah, you know what, Jeff? Or is it "Jeffery"?

I sometimes have signed documents as "Mike", sometimes as "Michael", sometimes even using my MIDDLE INITIAL!!! This is really the hill you idiotic morons want to die on? What a bunch of assholes.

kobrakai: Are you attempting a BSAB?


Quite a few of Ds are going with the not Trump! instead of focusing on what they support/want to change.  The Rs are doing their normal hypocritical BS.  The political ads reflect that.  If you want to call that BSAB, go for it.  It's still bullshiat. Federal seats, I generally vote D, however, I would like to see what my representatives bring to the table and not who they're not.

Yeah, it's not gonna keep me from hating him, but he didn't do too badly. Imagine if he were actually not a giant sentient penis, this would actually be endearing. Instead, it's just awkward because you can't describe the feeling... You basically loathe him a microscopically amount less, but are still completely repulsed by the man.
