  •  Beware the true believer. (0+ / 0-)

    Mr. Cruz may seem the ignoramus, but Princeton and Harvard don't graduate simpletons. It's more a cynical thing, IMO much worse. The a-hole is dumbing down for the base and his Texas cousin screwers in anticipation of 16. Alas, I don't see the man lasting very long.

    •  He's building crazy cred (0+ / 0-)

      for the base that feels twice stung for having lost elections with not-"real"-conservative candidates. By starting now and making a name for himself, a hero to the Tea Partiers, he hopes to accumulate enough political capital to make it through the GOP Crazy filter of the primaries. He's the one out there actually doing the psychotic bidding of the "shut 'er down!" moran base on a national level, and on an issue of great importance: Barack Obama's signature legislation. Bachmann et al couldn't make that claim. Cruz is counting on the GOP to say "what the hell" and run a "pure" (read: batshit insane) conservative in 2016, since those "moderates" McCain and Romney failed.

      What do we want? Evidence-based change! When do we want it? After peer review!
