Ted Cruz is a court jester, a clown, a befuddled loser who has no clue what is actually going on in the world. He's the literal definition of a moron and it's a crying ass shame he busted his metaphorical nut so early. It would have been an awesome site to behold Cruz as the 2016 GOP nominee for President, but alas my dream died along with Cruz's hopes of ever becoming the GOP nominee.

R.I.P Teddy, you could have been a contender.

As for the rest of Teddy's GOP brethren, they have some explaining to do.  They are collectively to blame for enabling an idiot to lead them. The question out of any and all Democratic party elected officials should be how did the GOP let a moron take over the party? And then I would ask each member of congress the big question, how do they feel about the Tea Party and it's leader Ted Cruz and list a litany of things Ted and the Tea Party strongly believe in and make sure it's accurate and their's youtube footage to back it up.

By doing this you either yank the GOP back to center a bit after their long rightward journey or you get them on the record endorsing the crazy. Either way the country is better off.

Couple of other things. The shutdown muted criticism of the ACA roll out. There were some major glitches that would have gotten you fired from Apple if they happened on Steve Job's watch. Thanks, Publicans.

Enough with budget cutting talk. It's time for reality. the rich people and the corporations have way more cash in their accounts then they will ever need or use. It's time to take the money and use it to fix the mess sequester has done to our economy.

It's not time to ask what the gop will be cutting from the budget,  it's time to ask them what they are willing to fix and make better about the government. It's time to ask them to pledge to never shutdown the government again. Keep these idiots on the defensive and stop letting them frame the terms of the debate.

It's time for the Democratic party to stop trying to split hairs when it comes to government and to go all in on defending the government and asking the people if they want an improved government or no government at all. The problem with the Republicans whose core principle is "government doesn't work" is that its elected representatives have no incentive to govern. So they need to be asked if they are even fit to govern our country.

Grover Norquist is doing stand up comedy and no, this is not a joke...

More Tagging tips:

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.
