re: Ted Cruz = Joe McCarthy


The New York Times is racist against Latinos. We need a national dialogue on this. I thought our society was past this. Very disappointing. Get that national dialogue going. Maybe some racist therapy for the New York Times.

My bad. The article I read at Starbucks today was Sat edition. The girls only give me the NYT free from yesterday.
Don't know what they wrote today.
Did find this:

NYT goes birther on Cruz

Darn it, I get a "You have reached your limit" block.

Just searching NYT's site for the article brings up these headlines:

"A very junior Senator delivers a jolt"

"Ted Cruz runs counter to Senate's courtly ways"

"Ted Cruz, the GOP's Nasty Newcomer"

"The weekend word: Unravel"



Think they're out to get him?

Breitbart.com has an article talking about how the NYT, WaPo and Politico all have pieces out against him this week.

Sounds like Huey when he first came to the Senate.


Of course if the Senator was a woman or a black liberal, they would be patting him on the back for shaking up things and standing up for social justice.

No one could argue Cruz standing up for israel is some sort of defense of social justice.

It's time to draw a line in the sand, folks. If you criticize a black or latino liberal Democrat, you are automatically accused of being a racist and using "code words." But liberal WHITE douchebags like Matthews, et al, the MSNBC crowd, say the most scurrilous things about Republican black and latino politicians, and not a word is said about it. Therefore, every time the media criticizes a black or latino Republican politician, I am crying "racist!" You should too. And I would LOVE to hear a Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Alan West, Herman Cain tell Chris Matthews, "shut the frick up, dickhead! You ain't black, don't tell ME what 'being black' means."

I thought it smells like teen spirit? Sorry not often you can work a Nirvana line into a thread.

Ron Paul attacked the status quo on Capitol Hill relentlessly in a civil manner, while Cruz is working to maintain Capitol Hill's status quo in the most uncivil manner.

So, Ted Kennedy was being civil when he said Robert Bork wants to bring back slavery?

Thank you, you acknowledge that Cruz is a comparable bit of demagogic feces.

Why can't we just acknowledge that Cruz acted like a jackass? Why does the board always devolve into "yeah, well the other team did it, too!"? Childish...much like Cruz and the various and sundry other Rs and Ds.

Because Hagel hates the joooooosss. They will defend him even though he looked incredibly incompetent during the hearing.

I already answered that question. I didn't watch the hearing. You want me to make a judgment based upon what the NYT says about him?
OK, I'll assume that since the media thinks he's a jackass, I will assume that he's a great guy. Because the media is the biggest collection of jackasses in the country.
