Ted Cruz: Profile in Courage

October 3, 2016

Ted Cruz: Profile in Courage
Before the GOP Convention, Donald Trump claimed Ted Cruz’s father killed JFK, and that Mrs. Cruz is a crook. Senator Cruz called Trump a “pathological liar,” a “braggadocious, arrogant buffoon,” a “serial philanderer” and “sniveling coward” who is “utterly amoral” and unfit to be president.

In July, at the GOP Convention, Ted Cruz told delegates “Vote your conscience.” But, as we learned back in 2013 when he shut down the government, Mr. Cruz has no conscience himself. He confirmed that judgement by endorsing Donald Trump for president two weeks ago.

No surprises here. At least Ted taught Mr. Trump a 4-syllable word, “braggadocious.”

Colin Powell? Ha. Meat Loaf!

October 27, 2012

On Thursday morning General Colin Powell, Ronald Reagan’s National Security Advisor, 12th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, endorsed Barack Obama for President.

On Thursday evening Republican Mitt Romney was endorsed by aging rock singer, bit part film actor, and reality TV personality Meat Loaf.

Take that, Mr. President!

UPDATE:

Meat Loaf won’t actually vote for Mitt Romney. Why not? He never got around to registering:
