Skip to comments.Gail Collins: A Ted Cruz on Every Corner (Ted's crazy but Abortion Barbie's "exciting")

Have you noticed how many lawmakers from Texas were doing crazy things during the government shutdown debacle?
We need to discuss this as a matter of simple justice. These days, when you say Texas in the context of heavy-breathing Republican extremism, everybody immediately thinks of Senator Ted Cruz. Which is really unfair when there are so many other members of the state delegation trying to do their part.
I am thinking, for instance, of Representative Randy Neugebauer, who harangued an innocent park ranger about a shutdown-shuttered war memorial, insisting that the ranger and her colleagues should be ashamed of themselves.
Or Representative Louie Gohmert, who created a mild diversion when he charged that John McCain, an opponent of the shutdown, supported Al Qaeda in Syria. (McCain said that he did not take offense because if someone has no intelligence, I dont view it as being a malicious statement.)
Or Representative Steve Stockman, who accused the president and House Democrats of curb-stomping veterans.(continued)

Gail Collins = Cognitive Dissonance.
The left are afraid of Cruz, and using him as a spring platform to attack the good guys from Texas like Gohmert is laughable. Texas does not give a damn what you east coast elites think.
AMERICAN PATRIOTS DON’T GIVE A DAMN.
We have seen this nasty smear campaign before with Sarah Palin.
Don’t mess with Senator Cruz, because he’s smarter than all the media talking heads and demonic-rats put together.
First they ignore you
Then they laugh at you
Then they fight you
Then you win.
Gail Collins is still alive?!?
Won’t give the link a hit. But I love TX!

I detect a tone of disapproval.
In a recent hearing, Gowdy compared the 100 day tolerance Obama granted OWS to the hostile treatment he dealt the Vets.
Another Manhattan liberal strains her neck by holding her nose in the air.
That may be true to some extent, but who really fears Ted Crud is mainstream GOP, defense contractors, Wall Street, and Main Street.
They are scared to death of Ted Cruz.
