If Ted Cruz Were to Take His Clothes Off, Would You Look?

The junior Senator from Texas Ted Cruz has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he craves attention. He has done nothing since being elected to the Congress. He has no novel ideas, he seems to have no ideas at all. He seems to skim the surface of the political pool and finds a crusade to attach himself to then starts looking for microphones to approach. He has offended the traditions of the Senate in which newly elected Senators are supposed to wait and take their turn at the microphones.

Mr. Cruz wants two things right now: attention and money and he doesn’t seem to care how he acquires them. Threatening to shutdown the federal government as a ploy to accumulate campaign contributions? Sign him up. Threatening the credit rating of the entire country and with it the robustness of the economic recovery of this country (such that there is) and the whole world . . . as a ploy to raise even more money? Yeehaw, sign him up.

When he strips naked to get even more publicity, will you continue to watch?

Mr. Cruz is a living political train wreck, the equivalent of a bad reality TV show, our generations Joe McCarthy, etc. something you are embarrassed to watch but can’t take your eyes off. The sad thing is that so many Republicans say that during their caucus meetings, he is the brightest bulb in the room. So, it is true, in a country of the blind, a one-eyed man is King, because that sparkle isn’t glitz, it isn’t intelligence, . . . it is snake oil.

  2. Glad you bought up McCarthy. If i’m not mistaken they look eerily alike.

    • Yep, they do … and here we go again, Demagoguery 101. But Mccarthy apparently only wanted attention, Cruz wants attention, money, and power.

      • Nice chap. Did he manage to speak for any great span of time yesterday? (And ho is the Senior Senator from Texas?)

        • John Cornyn, an “empty suit” if there ever was one. Great mane of white hair, you see him all the time when a scurry of Republicans approaches a microphone. (I just coined that collective noun for a group of Republicans, like a murder of crows, a gaggle of geese. Rats scurry a lot, no?)

          • I’m down with that… A scurry (of Teapublicans) it is!

  3. Wow! I haven’t seen this type of lashing out since the TEA Party handed the northbound Dems their south sides in 2010! You show your fear.

    • If I have any fear it is of demagogues who have interests far from my own. I have no doubt that if Ted Cruz runs for President in 2016, it will be a boon for Democrats.
