Ted Cruz depicted as a vampire slayer by guerilla street artist
Examiner ^ | July 26, 2014 | Mark Whittington

Posted on 07/26/2014 5:36:27 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

If Ted Cruz were not in the United States Senate, he might have a new career as a vampire slayer. At least that is how he is depicted in a new poster by a conservative street artist who goes by the name of Sabo, according to a Friday piece in MySanAntonio. The posters, which have started to pop up on southern California street corners depicting Cruz wearing a long, leather duster and carrying a crossbow. First Lady Michelle Obama is depicted as a bat winged monster swooping down on Cruz.

The posters are apparently in response to a recent dust up surrounding a recent episode of the HBO drama “True Blood” that depicted a Ted Cruz gala at the George W. Bush Presidential Library being turned into a bloodbath. One of the vampire characters refers to Republican women in the crudest, most misogynistic terms. Both Cruz and Sarah Palin denounced the episode, though Cruz artfully bemoaned how he has apparently lost the undead vote.

According to a recent profile in The Blaze, Sabo is a former Marine who has turned to guerilla art as a means of political expression. He has deployed posters mocking liberal celebrities like Hillary Clinton and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. He has never shown his face because, technically, his guerilla street art is considered vandalism and therefore is against the law.

Sabo is most famous for another poster of Ted Cruz that mysteriously appeared on street corners, depicting the Texas senator as bare chested, tattooed, and with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. Cruz expressed himself charmed by the depiction. He was quick to point out, though, that there was one critical error. He is not a smoker. .

Another Ted Cruz graphic. If only he didn’t look like Bill Murray in a particularly nerdy role ...

His attention to detail is quite remarkable. From the pocket watch chain to the gun butt.

“First Lady Michelle Obama is depicted as a bat winged monster swooping down on Cruz.”

Accurate portrayal.

Ted's nerd, stuttering and all. But that's okay, it humanizes him. Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada is a nerd as well; no complaints there!

THIS is how you respond to dirty, vile Liberal attacks! How many on Free Republic think Cruz should have pulled a “George W.” and stayed silent?

Ted Cruz is not handsome, as are some politicians. He IS a pleasure to look at, warm, engaging, makes direct eye contact, speaks eloquently, (he would slice & dice anyone in a debate and win..would LOVE to see him & obozo in debate,) talks w/o a teleprompter, or a script. He loves God, his country, his family..in short his values are solid. He is a Conservative, a Constitutional scholar, and he FIGHTS for US. Ted Cruz for President in 2016!

There is nothing wrong with nerdy. However, my daughter and I have wished, over the years, for a politician with Ted Cruz's principles who is also muy guapo.

But if you can't have both, I'll take the conservative principles.
