He’s on my extremely short “awful people in public” list, though not quite at the very top.
In the newspaper being held by the server, it refers to Raphael Edward “Ted” Cruz (Q-Tx) as a “pendejo.” This is a Spanish term equivalent to our “idiot.” But just as we have adapted the term to refer to someone particularly disconnected from reality and common sense regarding the pandemic by blending “COVID” with “idiot” to get “covidiot,” so in Spanish they have also created the portmanteau “PANDEJO” by combining the words “pandemia” (pandemic) with “pendejo” (idiot).
Raphael is definitely a PANDEJO.
In any case, while Raphael was just another Latino sneaking across the border to avoid inhospitable and unlivable conditions in the collapse of a failed government (and for much-needed respite from the grueling task of trying to overturn a valid election that he lost), oh, and trying to escape ICE, Beto O’Rourke was making phone calls to check on seniors and pulling strings and cashing in favors to find resources and accommodations for people in need of basic necessities such as electricity, heat and water.
Beto O’Rourke was DOING the job that Raphael was elected to do.
Betting there are a lot of Texans who would like a do-over these days.
“Cruz gets brain freeze! Sources at the hotel say it was only a mild case which affected only one or two brain cells at the most.”
Cruzin Cancun, yehaaaaa!
Fled Ooze is STILL trying to repair his “image” by doing a photo-op handing out water.
TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE, YOU MISERABLE S.O.B.!!
So… how does Cruz manage to fly to a foreign country and back without being subject to a 14 day quarantine?
Has anyone attempted to rescue Ted’s poor daughters who are still trapped under the bus??
Pendejo literally means pubic hair but goes a step further meaning asshole or idiot.
And people said cartoonists wouldn’t have anything to draw once Trump was gone…
Never heard of a Banana Monkey before so at first I thought this was about a racist comment by Cruz, then I read the recipe and it is supposed to have ice in it, which reinforces Cruz as an idiot, and not just for leaving Texas during a disaster.
I have complete faith in Texans to re-elect Ted again and again. You deserve who you elect again and again.
There’s this almost religious claim that this weather was “unprecedented” for Texas. That’s just not true.
In 1983 they had a snowstorm that put this one to shame. They had lesser (but much larger that this one) storms in 78, 85 and 86. Lubbock (reasonably central place) had a record low of -17 in 1933!
Lubbock shows a total for the 1983 season of 41 inches of snow. Back then, Gingrich hadn’t managed to undo the regulations put in place by the New Deal. How many Texans would die in a 1983 season today? The mind boggles.
He redeemed himself yesterday with the publicity op of him passing out water to those in need – what a mensch.
As they said on SNL this week, Cruz’s face is slowly being reclaimed by nature.
I think an octopus would never touch Cruz. After all, they taste with their tentacles…
Best wishes to the octopus.
LOVE the headline!!!
Thieving lying crooked republicans have no interest in governing.
Are we positive Crud’s 2 minute attempted rehab photo op was really handing out bottled water and not bottled banana monkeys? His PR people don’t seem too sharp. Thanks to Clay, I learned today that banana monkeys are a real drink. They won’t last long if they become associated with Ted Crud.
Chili today. Hot tamale. Desgraciado.
Great one, Clay! Love the crab and the octopus!
