Sen. Ted Cruz: Over the Cliff Like Thelma and Louise

The colossal Misadventures of Freshman Senator Ted Cruz
from Texas:
brainiac ego meets humongous hubris
and everything goes off the cliff

Tea Party, Obamacare, Republicans

Any Resemblance to Thelma and Louise is Purely Intentional. Toon By Jerry Collamer.

Is Senator Ted Cruz Our New McCarthy: Two and a half years ago, Cruz gave a stem-winder of a speech at a Fourth of July weekend political rally in Austin, Texas, in which he accused the Harvard Law School of harboring a dozen Communists on its faculty when he studied there. Cruz attended Harvard Law School from 1992 until 1995. His spokeswoman didn’t respond to a request to discuss the speech. — Jane Meyer in “The New Yorker

Cruz is a first-generation citizen. His father, Rafael, as a teen-ager in Cuba, fought alongside Castro’s revolutionaries against the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. He was jailed and beaten by the regime. “My grandmother said that his suit, which had started out bright white, you couldn’t see a spot of white on it,” Cruz said. “It was just stained with blood and mud, and his teeth were dangling from his mouth.” When Castro came to power, in 1959, the elder Cruz quickly grew disillusioned.  — Ryan Lizza “The New Yorker
