In 2007, journalist Michael Kelly wrote a devastating profile of Ted Kennedy. By then, Kennedy was a political lion in winter, but the article in GQ reinforced the worst instincts of some Americans about Kennedy the drinker, the carouser, a fraud. Kelly wrote:
Up close, the face is a shock. The skin has gone from red roses to gin blossoms.

So not having read the underlying New Yorker column, what evidence do they think they have that Ted Cruz is anything but a true believer?
The Obamazombies...they be against us!
They hate us and they hate God and all the goodness he stands for.
This is no joke! We are under attack.
Matt 10:22 (KJV)-” And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.”
Probably his Harvard, Princeton and Supreme Court background.
They always tell you who they really fear.
Didn’t Michael Kelly die in 2003, during the Iraq War?
Wayne Slater is a frequent guest on Tingles show.
I'll support either ticket in 2016: Palin/Cruz or Cruz/Palin.
