      people like Cruz are instant stars in the GOP.  Because they can talk for 5 minutes without saying '*igger'.  If you don't pay attention to what they're saying, they almost make sense, too.  They're starstruck when they find someone who can 'articulate the true premise of conservatism', meaning who can use all the correct dog whistles and proper talking points to say '*igger' without actually saying it.

      The most important part of Lee Atwater's famous quote was when he admitted that all their attacks on the poor, the defenseless, were motivated by the fact that these attacks hurt blacks more than whites.  So he said they don't need to actually say '*igger' anymore.
