“Sen. Ted Cruz GRILLS FBI Director on IRS investigation”

Sure.  He can be occasionally effective, when aimed at the proper targets.  But let’s not forget:  this guy is poison. A wacko bird.  Unhelpful.  A presumptuous junior Senator whom the left demonizes and whom career GOP politicians rightly despise and seek to weaken, mucking up as he does their opportunities to reach the great Moderate Middle of the country’s electorate that has been so very crucial in getting Presidents Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney elected, and President George H W Bush re-elected, once he was able to free himself from Ronny Raygun’s outdated, kamikaze conservative coat tails.

The end goal of politics is, naturally, compromise — not on any specific policy question, but rather, as GOP stalwart and 2-time Marxist Obama voter Colin Powell would have it, as an end unto itself. And compromise means never having to empanel a special independent investigator.

People like Cruz don’t see that. Because they Just Don’t Get How DC Works ® . Thank goodness we’ve had Senators and Congressmen in DC for decades at a time to keep these upstarts in line when needs be. Which is anytime they start going on about principles and the like. Purist behavior like that isn’t sufficiently cynical. And it takes cynicism to Get Things Done in our names, particularly when it’s quite clear we don’t want it.

And to think. This guy has designs on being President. Has nobody reminded him his name isn’t Bush or Clinton yet? Or at the very least, that he’s one of them racist White Hispanics?

  1. Or at the very least, that he’s one of them racist White Hispanics?

    I’m pretty sure Ted is the King of the racist White Hispanics. (If he were a Dem, he could be Grand Kleagle!)

  2. God Almighty, we deserve to be hit by a meteor.

  3. It’s good to have the FBI a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, evidently. And here just a few days ago people were inclined to sing the praises of Comey as an independent thinker who had realized the fight against the Islamers wasn’t going as well as IWonPenPhone has been claiming. Faugh.

  4. Meh..F’in’ Hobbit questioning his betters.., I thougt he did quite well, but was completely stonewalled by an Obumblefuck crony

    Yes, a meteor sounds good right about now….

  5. God Almighty, we deserve to be hit by a meteor.

    The sooner the better.

  6. Just a nice medium-sized one… say the size of a small house. A few kilotonnes of nickel/iron-rich rock at interplanetary speeds, landing in that triangle formed by the White House, Capitol Building and the Pentagon.

    Best estimates I can get would be a crater about 6 miles across

  7. - A meteor would just sink into the swamp ooze and disappear like all the so-called Conservatives that ride a wave of promises to DC and a week after arriving have been assimilated into the crony-ism goo.

    - So you thought we could get through an entire week without another scandal nuke falling on the WH and Mr IWonPenPhone’s half black waffle ears. Well forget it bunkie.

    - Can you say “VA” and use it in a sentence kiddies?

    - Bumblefuck hid as long as he could and the press could keep it burried, the bastards.

    - The WH and Capital are no longer on the Potomac river. They’re on denial.

  8. i like dc’s building. is there a neutron bomb available?

  9. It’s apparent to me that the ravages of the long march throughout the institutions are not going to be cured by incremental steps back toward small r republicanism (sorry, Mark Levin – I love the idea of an Article V convention, but it’s about fifty years too late). It’s either going to take an SMOD or a bloody fight to reverse the inertia of a post-constitutional country.
    Man, we are living through the end of the grandest successful experiment in human governance that the world has ever seen. I wonder if the right conditions will ever be seen again. I hope our descendants will forgive us.

  10. My sentiments exactly RI Red.

  11. Nick Seracy won’t have your sniping against Mitch. He won the primary so now we need to grease the shoot so he gets to put the knife in out back instead of Grimes. Way to shit your heated pool Nicky!

  12. Seracy -> Searcy, Choot -> chute

  13. grimes 2014! kill de mitchy

  14. [Mitch] won the primary so now we need to grease the [chute] so he gets to put the knife in ou[r] back instead of Grimes.

    That makes no sense whatsoever. Mitch would no more stab Grimes in the back than Grimes would stab us in the back.

    That’s why you should vote for Grimes –keep that knife in front of you.

  15. in a fixed system: go after the loser supporting the system. grimes 2014

  16. same with boner in oh – 8. destroy the repub ruining class

  17. sorry, Mark Levin – I love the idea of an Article V convention, but it’s about fifty years too late

    It won’t stop the current trajectory but it might help during the rebuilding. The ideas need to be pushed publicly if for no other reason than to help them survive the crash.

    In the case of McConnell, the ideal result is the GOP retakes the Senate but WITHOUT Mitch.

    Strategic voting, remember?

  18. - Bumblefucks Marxist strategy team is playing the “When theres one scandal its a political disaster, when theres one scandal a week its a slow day in the news room” game.

  19. OT: I’m deep into Fred Siegel’s Revolt Against the Masses, in which he argues that Huxley’s only problem with the brave new world was that the conformist Mustapha Monds ran it instead of poet intellectuals like Helmoltz Watson.

    I don’t know if I buy it or not, but it’s an interesting notion. Siegel has a number of quotes from Huxley that seem to support the proposition.

  20. The vagina monolgue I heard today:

    “I thought you were going to cut the grass today”

    “You really ought to cut the grass. The yard needs it. ”

    ” I saw our neighbor looking at our lawn this morning. ”

    …goes and cuts the grass.

  21. (I played the part of the neighbor)

  22. monologue even

  23. I mowed this afternoon myself. Not because it needed it (it did), but because I wanted to feel good about the cigar I planned to smoke and the scotch I planned to drink afterwards.

    If I didn’t have to take my kid to piano lessons ltomorrow afternoon, I might think about painting something after lunch….

  24. In a less cross-wired universe, a President with the approval rating this one’s got would be eager to trumpet any successes, like, you know, actually nailing someone to the wall who violated federal law and their oath of office. Oh, but wait. That pretty much describes the President to a T. So maybe he’s not quite so eager to highlight (other) federal officials guilty of gross malfeasance.

  25. The other thing to note is that the Democrats never feed one of their own to the sharks for the amusement of the media-led mob.

    They wait until some new outrage has focused their short little attention spans, and then let the sacrificial victim throw him or herself to the sharks.

    There’s a lesson in that for Republicans

  26. - I’d probably want to add some caveats to that premise Ernst.

    - They are totally cynical/fickle to the inth degree. They wouldn’t hesitate for a heartbeat to cut off a foot if the toes are hurting the cause or threatening dear leader, and everyone of them, in the inside circle, not the useful idiot base, knows that. What you see is they don’t have to sacrifice anything when they control most of the media.

  27. YOU BROKE MY SARCAS-O-METER

  28. In a less cross-wired universe, a President with the approval rating this one’s got would be eager to trumpet any successes, like, you know, actually nailing someone to the wall

    That would require effort. Obama is of the generation that has decided it is enough to “be” President, and that doing presidential things — like, for example, a President’s constitutional duty — is just outdated social dogma that needs to be fundamentally transformed.

  29. As for “deserving” the SMOD, pardon me for being serious but as a Christian I’ve been of the understanding that we always deserve it — and are spared only by God’s grace.

    Though I can see the argument for why that grace may now be doing His children more harm than good…

  30. I second that, McGehee. We’ve all got it coming.
