Oh, good, I'm glad Sen. Ted Cruz is keeping a clear head during all this. The only thing worse than a guy who is willing to withhold paychecks from hundreds of thousands of people to make a rather unclear political point would be if he thought he was doing God's work.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said over the weekend that he had prayed to God to guide him in the shutdown fight and was sure that "his will be done as I know it will be."

At the Values Voter Summit over the weekend, CBN's David Brody spoke with Cruz about his role in instigating the government shutdown, which has been seen as complicating debt limit negotiations.

"Where do you see God in all of this fight that's going on in your life right now?" Brody asked the Texas senator.

"Well, David, you know at every stage, my prayer to God is that His will be done," Cruz insisted. "As it will be."

There's nothing more conservative than having the deep conviction that God wants you to be a total asshole to people. Seriously, that one predates the pointed stick.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
