Red really enjoyed the Town Hall meeting hosted by Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) the other day. He especially liked the part where the Junior senator – that our President formerly referred to as “Lying” Ted – never showed up. That’s because everyone wins when Ted doesn’t post. Cruz gets to avoid angry constituents who have come to realize that Ted is all about the greater glorification of all things Ted Cruz and that he really couldn’t give a crap about the state he supposedly represents. For Cruz, being a senator is not about doing your job, it’s all about have a platform for his overweening ambition. The constituents themselves are winners too, because they get to avoid actually having to be in the presence of the odious Cruz – who just might be the most obnoxious human being Red has ever met. So it’s really a win-win situation when Ted fails to interact with the good folks he is supposed to represent.
Meanwhile, Cruz has had plenty of time this month to visit the Peterbilt factory in Denton and the Daikin plant in Waller where he gets to bloviate before a captive audience that is unlikely to pose any challenge. So Cruz is capable of getting out and meeting people in Texas – he just wants to be able to control the narrative and not have to face people who might challenge him. This brilliant guy who was able to take on the toughest questions from some of the brightest legal minds on the Supreme Court and other Courts of Appeals is somehow incapable of dealing with us average folks who just might not agree with his Tea Party nonsense. Trump was wrong – he’s not “Lying” Ted he is “Chicken” Ted.
