It turns out that Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo, as well as his wife, went to Princeton with Ted Cruz. Later, Marshall's wife also attended Harvard Law School with him.
Marshall is amazed that he can't remember Cruz from college, although he says he has an excellent memory, especially about people.
But most everybody else remembers Cruz, and they are unanimous in saying he was an Arrogant Asshole and Super Smart: AASS.
Marshall called lots of old friends and acquaintances and provides lots of good memories. It's interesting to think about the things he decided not to publish.
UPDATE: Well since this squib of a diary surprisingly got Recommended, I'd like to reiterate an important fact. Many people, including Josh Marshall and many people here, have assumed that by showing his Canadian birth certificate (which shows a U.S. citizen mother) and by showing his U.S. passport, that Rafael E. Cruz has proved that he acquired U.S. citizenship at birth and thus is a "native born" citizen eligible for the presidency.
But that is not true! What he has shown does not prove that! He's a Harvard lawyer. It's not that hard to provide the evidence needed to show that, and he has not. Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. But I smell a fish.
Here's a link to my big recent diary on this issue: http://www.dailykos.com/... .
And spare me the ignorant accusation of being a "birther." As I explained many times in that comment thread, I'm the opposite of that. This issue is not related in any way to controversy concerning President Obama.
