Ted Cruz: Seeing Red

So, just who is this Tea Party-approved Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), anyhow? When we first saw his picture, we thought we were looking at Joe McCarthy.

Ted Cruz: Seeing Red.

What’s most amazing is that, in resurrecting the Red Scare, he sounds like Joe McCarthy, too. He just made the dubious claim that his alma mater, Harvard Law School, has a large cadre of Marxists who have as their goal the overthrow of the United States government — and he links President Obama to them as well. We’re not certain if Cruz actually believes this twaddle or if, like McCarthy, the consummate panderer, he’s simply trying to hang his hat on a Tea Party-approved hook, no matter how irrelevant the issue in today’s world. Either way, we’re afraid.
