Even old Republican assholes can't stand today's Ted Cruz-led GOP.
More civil war:
"I'm of two minds," Lott said. "I'd like to be in the arena and help work something out. But it's gotten too nasty and too mean these days. I couldn't work with these guys."
When an asshole like Trent Lott shies away from the cesspool that is the GOP caucus, perhaps they've gone a teensy bit too far?
I asked Lott if his old GOP pals still serving in the Senate have lost control of their party. How do they feel about that? I inquired. Lott shook his head: "That Ted Cruz. They have to teach him something or cut his legs out from under him."
Everyone is so afraid, that a so-called "moderates revolt" in the House that was supposed to garner 20 votes ended up getting two. So yeah, no one is cutting Cruz's legs out from under him. At least not until we're closer to 2016, and Rand Paul is forced to act.
