    This aptly demonstrates Clay Bennett’s mental disorder. Though he obviously loathes Ted Cruz, he can’t even admit the reality of the situation. Millions upon millions of “ignorant, deluded, and racially-motivated” Americans love what Ted Cruz did. Sorry to say the club is larger than the Obama fake-Twitter accounts which number in the millions.

    Um…nope. His own party hates him; a small percentage of the country likes what they think he stands for (but of course the only thing he REALLY stands for is himself — the point of the cartoon).

    He got in the senate by accident, but he will leave on purpose.
    Texas, yes the Texans themselves, whom everyone disparages (except them) will boot him out.
    It will be The People, no one likes being embarrassed time and time again.

    Seeing as he voted against his own filibuster yesterday, it looks like not even Cruz is a member any more.

    I don’t know if he’ll be voted out — he’ll pull a Palin and quit so he can run for president. It’s not like he’s actually doing anything in the senate anyway, except grand-standing, saying “No” to everything, and distributing those pathetically lame, easily disprovable lies that are so damaging to the credibility of what’s left of conservatism.

    But, even if it were true, which I honestly don’t think is the case, it is superfluous to make fun of politicians for being “fans” of themselves. Barack “I have a gift” Obama…Bill Clinton of the “Clinton Global Initiative”. Etc….They are largely all narcissists. I think Ted Cruz did what he did because he sincerely believes that the direction we are headed is wrong. That is not such an outlandish act for a representative of the people to do.

    I admit I read the cartoon as though the implication was that the only person who owns such a card was Ted Cruz himself.

    Regardless of party, regardless of categorization:

    Anyone can be a politician, and talk about how bad things are.

    Almost no one can be a statesman, and create a solution. I submit that there are no identifiable statesmen in Washington, DC. Nor are there any in my state legislature in Virginia. Perhaps ego and pragmatism are mutually exclusive. In any case, if we don’t find any statesmen soon, I see no good outcomes for the future of the USA.

    The only power that exists for the average Joe is the voting booth. We have to stop voting for single issues and vote for longterm stability and growth as a society. John Huntsman was a perfect example: he’s pragmatic, has a lot of common sense, and was able to work with members of almost all factions of each party. In addition, he’s fluent in at least one Chinese dialect, with the additional experience of having been Ambassador to China (which I understand is a pretty powerful country and, as such, it wouldn’t hurt to be able to communicate with them on their level…does anyone but me wonder how much we can trust our translators?). Alas, he believed in science, and did not want to ban any and all abortion. As a result, even Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann (not to mention Mitt the Twit) outlasted him in the primaries.

    A major transformation has to happen to our electorate. We have to learn how to do our homework (which starts with deciding which news sources we can trust to educate us), learn the issues and the consequences of the various approaches to each, weigh them against what we can know about the candidates, and vote accordingly.

    And now, back to our regularly scheduled hate-fest.

    Truly, I don’t know why I bother to spend time doing this. When I first found this site, there was a comment that still resonates with me, which I will re-word to reduce potential sensitivities: “Commenting on internet boards is like the Special Olympics: Even if you win, you’re still Special.” Despite this, I continue. Probably just to irritate a special subset of posters, and you know who you are.

    You mean that the story is about trying something that you think you won’t like, and finding out that you like it?

    Cruz: and ego in search of a body, and a brain. Texas gave us LBJ, Bush, Cheney, Perry, and Cruz. At least Johnson gave us the Civil Rights Act, that turned every “southern Democrat” (Dixiecrat) into a Republican, and TEA party nut trying to win back the Alamo. They also DID give us Charlie Wilson, who had the right idea, initially, to arm the Afghan rebels against Russian occupation, but then they ignored the REST of the story, and didn’t follow up to get Massood, or someone rational to take over, Instead we totally dropped the ball, and backed the wrong people.

    I see that every last one of the so called liberal group, the one that is “inclusive, open minded, tolerant, and willing to listen to new ideas and consider things other than their own opinion”, yeah that group, continues to resort to nothing but ridicule, derision and hyperbole in an effort to discredit a man that is doing the job that those in Texas that elected him told him to do.

    You must have NO argument to offer if all you can do is denigrate Cruz.
