Ted Cruz the apocalyptic beast

A vicious man on the campaign trail. In June we were hit with this horrible news:

Beau Biden, a former Delaware attorney general, died on Saturday of brain cancer at age 46. President Barack Obama is to deliver the eulogy at a funeral Mass for Biden on Saturday in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House said on Tuesday.

Ted Cruz responded…

…on Wednesday in Michigan: “Joe Biden … You know what the nice thing is? You don’t even need a punch line.”

Everybody point and laugh at the man burying his son. Ha ha ha dig graves much, pal?

Two days ago we were shocked to hear this:

And then Jimmy Carter spoke, with the lilt of a South Georgia farmer and the pragmatic frankness of a seasoned executive, about the cancer that had been removed from his liver, but was more recently discovered in his brain…

“I’m perfectly at ease with whatever comes,” Mr. Carter said, speaking before the news media here at the Carter Center, the nonprofit dedicated to global health and democracy that he co-founded in 1982. “I do have a deep religious faith, which I’m very grateful for.”

Metastatic melanoma of the liver and brain is fatal. It’s not a question of whether it will end his life, it’s a question of when. We wish the president the best in a long and productive fight against cancer. Yesterday Ted Cruz was at it again.

I think the parallels between this administration and the Carter administration are uncanny. Same failed domestic policy, same misery, stagnation and malaise…


Obama boom

[…the horror.]

…same feckless and naive foreign policy. In fact, the exact same countries, Russia and Iran, openly laughing at and mocking the president of the United States.

Ted Cruz is a jackal. Wherever misery or death appears he bares his fangs and starts tearing away. Can Biden or Carter possibly defend himself in these terrible times? Of course not. So this is all terribly convenient and totally by design. Pity the mangy beast polling at seven percent, it’s the only meal he’s had in weeks. Do Republicans cringe at this reflexive viciousness or do they like it?

GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is the anointed one, according to Iowa state campaign chairman Matt Schultz…

“God raises special men and women to protect his people, and I believe this is one of those moments in time. … Ted Cruz is that man who God has prepared for this moment in time.”

Of course they like it – they love it. Why else would insult comic Donald Trump be doing so spectacularly? Incidentally there’s a Revelations parallel in the Ted Cruz Story I think, ‘born of a hyena’ and all that. Hell if you want to call him the Antichrist you won’t hear me complain.
