There might be more hypocrisy in Texas right now than rain, although surely its residents will claim that the witch doctor in the Oval Office caused the rain. See–there’s truly an amazingly wonderful thing about being a teabagger: you get to hate govmint while living off of it, because you’re white and own guns and crap. Okay, maybe that is more violently maddening than wonderful. But what makes your blood pressure rise faster than Lewis Black in a Daily Show segment is when a Republican Senator does it.
Ted “Tea party” Cruz found himself practically begging for federal dollars in the wake of the massive flooding in Texas. In fact, Cruz stated an eager willingness to work with Democrats to “stand as one in support of the federal government meeting its statutory obligations.” Just to be clear, this is the same guy who proudly voted against aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy because it was “wasteful.” Indeed, my state of New Jersey was drowning and witnessing its beautiful (and very expensive) shore devastated, and this pusillanimous puke face was denying its residents much-needed relief. NJ Gov. Chris Christie, who at the time was playing the role of Rudy Giuliani following 9/11, finally threw a tantrum at the right person when he directed his ire at Cruz and company.
But what about not “treading on me,” Ted? It’s no wonder this deranged clown will only garner votes from his miserably uninformed region.
