TED CRUZ: THE NEWEST VILLAGE IDIOT

Over at the Maddow Blog we have reports from the newest Village Idiot (even by Congressional Standards) Ted Cruz (R-Secessionist Republic of Texas).

Here let's let the idiocy speak for itself:





In this clip, at around the 0:44 mark, Cruz notes that the Senate has "two pending nominations, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel." Describing the nominees, Cruz added, "Both of whom are very prominently..." 
After pausing for a few moments, the event's moderator said, "Anti-us?" Cruz responded that Kerry and Hagel are "less than ardent fans of the U.S. military."
Perhaps Ted Cruz would benefit from a reminder about the men he's attacking. John Kerry is a decorated war hero who was awarded combat medals including the Silver Star, Bronze Star, and three Purple Hearts. Chuck Hagel is a decorated war hero who was awarded combat medals including the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, two Purple Hearts, Army Commendation Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.
Cruz, meanwhile, who apparently considers himself an "ardent fan of the U.S. military," has never worn a uniform, except maybe on Halloween.
But then watch some more... Cruz goes on to solidify his claims to the title by saying that Ronald Reagan should have won the Nobel Peace Prize because he "caused the downfall of the Soviet Union and won the Cold War".

Anyway, the sheer stupidity / ignorance of saying that two decorated War Heroes (no matter what else one may feel about either man), don't love "us" (he did not say "the U.S." he said "us") are "anti-the U.S. military" is mind boggling in it's wrongness. To say that both men only favor judicious use of the military or are anti-militarism would be far more accurate. BUT for someone who has never served in any military role to accuse two decorated war heroes, in leadership positions in the U.S. Government as being anti-U.S. military is mindblowingly dumb.

OH yeah, AND in the case of Chuck Hagel. These morons at the National Review Institute Summit should remember that not too long ago their guy Hagel was racking up scores from the American Conservative Union of over 95 on his voting record.

Oh well just another day in wingnuttia.

    1. Fits in well them eh?

      I would say that not only is he a "chickenhawk" and a "hypocrite" but he is also dumb as a sack of hammers. I think it is important not to leave that out.

    2. I actually don't think he's dumb. I really believe that he--and many of his counterparts--are intelligent people who pander to racist, paranoid teabaggers for votes. Some of them really are total dumbasses--Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Steve King--but this guy strikes as more of an opportunist. But maybe I'm wrong.

    3. I think you are spot-on - Cruz is an opportunist - just like the rest of the tea-baggers. Cruz might be smarter or faster - after all, his wife is a big shot at Goldman-Sachs, and he has a pedigree of degrees from Princeton and Harvard - and oh yes, a huge Texas ego (sorry Texans). All he has to do is appeal the flag, apple pie and scare the crap out of High Anxiety folks while throwing a pile of money at the election (from Goldman Sachs) and voila - you buy yourself a Senate seat. The question is - will Texan's be self-aware of this self-serving fascist!
