You’ve heard by now that Sen. Ted Cruz carried his ‘talkibuster’ into the wee hours and on into full daylight to strike the iron for defunding Obamacare.
RINOs can take a deep breath; Texas Zorro has ridden Toronado back to the cloak room, for now.
Feel free to do the full Obama victory lap now. The election is looming, but CNN, MSNBC and Al Jazeera will… well, still support your Democrat opponents. Forget I brought that up.
The most venomous attacks on Cruz for having the courage to do something few Republicans do, keeping his campaign promises, have come from Peter King, Tucker… er, establishment Republican from Long Island.
This is largely because most RINOs are hypocrites.
When Peter King is going to give you a sound bite, he lets you know ahead of time, so as not to insult your intelligence or, for that matter, waste your time if you’re not that interested in the details.
But please, stay for the footnotes….
Here is Mr. King, a Republican congressman who represents Long Island, speaking on Tuesday afternoon about Ted Cruz…
“My sound bite is to say he’s a fraud,” Mr. King said. “I start with that, and then I go on. It takes me two or three minutes to explain it.”…
Jumping ahead to that third minute, Mr. King said precisely what he thought of the Cruz tactic: “It is just a form of governmental terrorism.”
Something you will rarely see here at RRG is praise for the New York Times, but I have to give them their due. They managed to do a full roundhouse on Sen. Cruz and bitch slap King in the same fluid motion.
King must be feeling hot-danged Tucker… uh, establishment Republican this morning, knowing that he aped almost verbatim MSNBC’s Chris Mathews while driving the shiv deeper into his own party’s ribcage.
Four-A straight classy, Pete. It must be a gift to step outside in the morning, hold up a finger and know—just freaking know—what the Democrats in your district want to hear.
Speaking of governmental terrorism, did I mention Peter King is thinking about a run for the GOP nomination?
Oh yeah. Hands down.
Editor’s Note: The staff at Regular Right Guy would like to take this opportunity to apologize to Tucker Carlson for confusing his first name with the term ‘establishment Republicans’. Mistakes were made, it just slipped out, I’m sorry if I offended you, and I have to spend some time with my family now.
