In stark contrast to the Vichy GOP propping up the wrong side of history, here we have a clip of Ted Cruz telling a smarmy little mongrelish semihuman reporter that, if the will of the people is expressed strongly enough, Democrats could in fact put a stake in the undead heart of ObamaCare:
We must all respect the calmness with which Ted Cruz treats Beltway wisdom like a urinal cake.
UPDATE: Ted Cruz differentiates himself from Rand Paul on foreign policy. I don’t think there is a substantial difference between their views; it’s mostly stylistic. In reality, international power abhors vacuum, and the U.S. either fills that void, or stands by like a gaping Obama while less savory figures like Putin do.
What truly inspires about Cruz, however, is his rhetorical command. Stacy McCain says, and all of these blow-dried codpiece media idiots do, “The only way that a journalist should look at a politician is down the nose.” Cruz, however, is completely undaunted by any of them. Either his legal training or his debate practice (or both) seem to enable Cruz to play verbal chess three moves ahead of whatever buffoon is trying for a piece of him.
Truly inspiring stuff.
