  •  They keep saying Ted Cruz is smart. (5+ / 0-)

    Over and over I hear pundits describe Ted Cruz as smart - even brilliant.
    Talking Points Memo:

    How A Very Smart Senator Showed Us Everything Wrong With The Modern GOP In One Week
    The Daily Beast:
    Yet seriously there cannot be any doubt about Ted Cruz's "smarts."
    NY Times:
    He has an impressive academic résumé: an undergraduate degree from Princeton, followed by law school at Harvard. I’ve talked with his fellow students at Harvard and with his former colleagues from George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign. All of them mention how fiercely smart he is.
    But he consistently comes with really stupid ideas and says stupid things.
    They keep using that word - I do not think it means what they think it means.
