    Does Ted Cruz drink as much as Joe McCarthy?  And has he come up with a rancid little mini-me like Roy Cohn?  Other than those two things, I can't tell the difference between them.

    Great story about the Kentucky Kids.  That Benton must be a real piece of work:  a lunatic's Karl Rove.  I'm not in the least surprised McConnell is in bed with Rand Paul.  He's seen what happened to Robert Bennett and Dick Lugar.  McConnell's like Gollum -- he'd be bereft and without purpose in life if he lost his grip on his precious.

    If you want to cut Social Security, you're not a real Democrat.

      even among teabaggers, that Cruz could get elected when he's so personally repellent. But I guess there are those who aren't repelled by the type. And most of them are probably in Texas.

      As for McConnell, Gollum is a great analogy.

        ... but can confidently assert that Texas Republicans are the world's biggest followers of football fan politics.  Anybody wearing the right colors who can get the biggest yee-haw from the stands is going to win the game.  They care about little else after that, aside from getting their taxes cut and poor people shafted some more.
