For Texas Democrats, national Democrats and Senate Democrats, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is a dream come true, and the gift that keeps on giving. Now the talkative and ubiquitous Cruz has denounced the entire Republican leadership, presumably including Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), as being untrustworthy. Should Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the former boxer, land another blow to the political chin of Cruz, or send him thank-you notes for doing his part to make Republicans look so radical and weird that more Democrats will be elected to the Senate in 2014?
Now, as Sarah Palin competes with Cruz, who competes with Rubio, who competes with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R), who competes with the Austrian economists of his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul (R), who competes with the Social Darwinist atheists of Ayn Rand, to define the Grand Old Party as weird and extremist obstructionists, the big winners are Reid, Senate Democrats, Clinton and several very prominent Texas Democrats whose odds look better of defeating Gov. Rick Perry and John Cornyn, who competes with Cruz while he also competes with Texas Democrats, in 2014.
Didn't Jack Nicholson once make a move about internal politics of the GOP today? Something about flying over a cuckoo's nest, I believe.
