Ted Cruz has a hard time playing nice with others. After being shot down trying to attach an amendment to a funding bill that would defund Planned Parenthood, Cruz spent nearly an hour lecturing the Senate on why he and a minority of ultra-conservative wingnuts should make all of the decisions for every American.
It turns out that Cruz thinks because he and the other Tea Party numbskulls campaigned on a platform of idiocy that includes making Jesus Christ the most important person in government, that all other lawmakers have to fall in line. He calls the failure of the Republican leadership to bring the federal government to a halt a “disconnect with the voters back home.”
Sorry, Ted, but not all voters back home are Texas Christian zealots. Some lawmakers represent reasonable people who like it when their government compromises and continues to operate without the fear of being shut down by lunatics.
This minute and a half of Ted Cruz meltdown is a must watch. You can use it to teach your children how NOT to act when they don’t get their way.
Watch Ted Cruz melts down on the Senate floor when he doesn’t get his way.
