Y’all know we don’t follow politics much. Time for that closer to the election. And some of you know I found Ted Cruz’ call out to evangelical Christians a mite theocratic.
But I’ll give the man his due. Though pilloried for denigrating “New York values” everyone knew what he meant. He was talking ’bout them Big ‘L’ leftists, those big city slickers and their flim-flam ways. They’ll getcha every time. Just wait till the next time it snows and see whose street gets plowed first.
Well, you can imagine the huffery, the Cruz beat-down. Finally all those professional New Yorkers like former N.Y. Senator Hillary “ChillBill” Clinton and the other Bill, Communist mayor of New York City de Blasio – they all just piled on Cruz. Not to mention the dynastic Governor Cuomo. Y’all remember his daddy, Mario, right?
[Yep, we seem to have dynasties popping up everywhere. Baby Doc Trudeau’s daddy cut quite a figure in his day, even if he was cuckolded. And that current governor of California followed in his father’s footsteps, too…though he really ought to have stuck it out in the seminary and prayed for his state instead of running for office. Not for nothing is Jerry Brown known as “Moonbeam”: he recently banned the use of the word “alien” in his state. Nor will the nickname “Redskins” be allowed. Can’t say it, even though native Americans keep telling us they don’t care…and as if it mattered, given California’s actually serious problems with aliens. Maybe even UFOs.]
So Ted Cruz did the manly thing: he offered a +two-minute, full-throated apology to New Yorkers, sans note cards or teleprompters.
After Obama, it will be difficult to imagine presidents who simply get up and talk. Let me repeat those magic words…”after Obama”. Or even “post Obama”. There oughta be a song. Or even a whole musical…
Hat tip: Louder with Crowder. He’s a conservative comedian. No, that’s not an oxymoron.
