Sen. Ted "Calgary" Cruz has
a new fundraising gimmick:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a resolution on Thursday calling for Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal — and if he doesn't do so, Cruz thinks he should be impeached.
"If attorney general Eric Holder continues to refuse to appoint a special prosecutor, he should be impeached," Cruz said on the Senate floor.
No word yet on whether he'll accept donations in Canadian dollars, but whether or not he does, the gambit doesn't seem to be playing all that well, at least on Twitter, where his attempts to make it go viral have been met with lackluster enthusiasm, getting just
a few hundred retweets.
Still, the tweets back at him are nothing short of hilarious. For example:
@tedcruz WE aren't the ones who are supposed to do that YOU ARE.
Actually, that's a fair point. You can't impeach someone on Twitter, so why is Ted Cruz wasting his time pretending that he can? Could it be that he's secretly part of Obama's conspiracy to destroy America? If not, he'd better act quickly to prove to his base that he's got guts:
@tedcruz How long do we have too wait? Who starts the impeachment? Does the GOP have the guts?
Indeed. How long does a teabagger have two weight around here? Because:
@tedcruz @KingofKingONE LITIGATE OBAMA FOR TREASON! DO YOUR JOB JAIL OBAMA NOWWWW!!!!! THE PEOPLE VS BARACK OBAMA @benshapiro @TGowdySC
DO YOUR JOB, TED. PUT OBAMA IN JAIL! NOWWWWW!
@tedcruz JAIL OBAMA NOWWW #FastAndFurious #libya #benghazi #bergdahl #IRSscandal #VAScandal #BirthCertificate #obamacare #Iraq @johnboehner
Yes. NOWWWWWWWW! And don't stop there!
@griffisk @tedcruz Exactly! We better REMOVE a LOT more than 6 oBUMaRats in Senate this Nov. MAGIC # is 16. Maybe that will slow oBUMa down.
Screw it, let's just go for the whole enchilada (as long as it's not an illegal enchilada):
@tedcruz Impeach the whole administration.
You gotta' love wingnuts these days. They know what they want—Obama's impeachment NOWWWWWW—and they aren't afraid to push back on anyone who they think stands in their way, including Ted Cruz.
