Calling Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Tex) a spineless weasel is truly an insult to spineless weasels in general. Lyin’ Ted has proven that he will say anything to anyone if he thinks it will result in the greater glorification of all things Ted Cruz. His latest attempt to curry favor with the Trumpian wing of the GOP is to write a hagiographic testament to Trump in the Time magazine’s new feature on the 100 most influential people of 2018. Ted practically falls over himself in praising Trump as a great leader. That same great leader that Ted called “utterly amoral’, a “pathological liar” and a “narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen.”
Red defers to Lyin’ Ted’s expertise on narcissism. Oh hell, Red defers to Ted on the pathology of lying as well. Apparently, Ted was asked by Time to do the piece. He could have declined and no one would have been the wiser. But given a chance to suck up and boost his sagging popularity, Ted chose to praise the man who said his wife was purt near ugly as store-bought sin and his Daddy might have helped kill JFK. It takes an utterly broken moral compass to make the switch from righteous indignation to moral bankruptcy. And apologies to spineless weasels everywhere.
