    Maybe you should use the word "brilliant" a couple more times when describing Ted Cruz.

      That's how we win? If that's your argument, then it's a dumb one.

        He's very good at convincing stupid people of stupid things. He's the current Tea Party figurehead, "fighting the good fight" while driving the rest of his party (and the country) into the ground.

        All his "brilliance" aside, I really don't think he's going to sweep into the presidency come 2013.

        Of course we shouldn't write off the Tea Party or Cruz, but frankly, I think you overstate his "brilliance".

      Compared to Boehner, a political hack who is sucking down 2 or 3 bottles of wine a day, Cruz is brilliant.
