ABOUT DAMN TIME
You might be on to something.
I just read a column in WaPo about Cruz "crossing the line" for "making unsubstantiated allegations" on the Senate floor. I guarandamntee you that wasn't written when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did just that against Romney.
You never see the media scrambling for Democrats to distance themselves from any leftist bomb throwers like Grayson or Lee. Nor are they cited as "writ large" of the modern left.
Democrats don't get challenged from within for bucking protocol or tradition to get something done.
It's a shame it'll backfire on Cruz thanks to his own pussified party and an all too powerful leftist media machine, because you're right. This definitely a taste of their own tactics. I'll now enjoy watching them bristle.
