“I like Ted Cruz greater than most of my different colleagues like Ted Cruz. And I hate Ted Cruz.”

Sen. Al Franken

Texas Senator Ted Cruz retains needlessly digging himself deeper right into a gap in an intensifying struggle with unbiased Republican Liz Cheney.  This morning, Joe Scarborough had some enjoyable with Cruz, with some critical undertones, as Scarborough identified that Cruz can’t win this struggle.

Ted Cruz has all the time been an enigma, again to his days as a legislation scholar at Harvard, the place, although even professors acknowledged that Cruz had a frighteningly highly effective authorized thoughts, everybody hated him, a lot as they revered his capability. The identical form of primary dynamic held proper up till he was elected to the US Senate. Extraordinarily good man, hated by everybody.

However over the past yr, new questions have arisen on even the good man entrance, particularly these pertaining to Ted’s id. Even earlier than the Cancun factor and snowflake erupted, Ted has made a sequence of public errors that nearly compelled those who knew of him to recall that well-known line from Forest Gump in that “Silly is as silly does.” What if, for all of the authorized genius, Ted Cruz is definitely a f’ing fool? The proof is mounting.

Cruz first urged that Cheney run for president as a Democrat. A Cheney? A Democrat? That promptly led to him getting owned by Liz, to the purpose it acquired so unhealthy that Cheney needed to inform “ally” Eric Swalwell that the one technique to get Ted Cruz’s respect was to assault his spouse, a reference to Cruz’s embarrassing willingness to put aside Trump’s assaults on Cruz’s spouse as much less engaging than Melania, and so on.  Trump additionally vaguely accused Cruz’s dad of being in on the JFK assassination. Inflammatory stuff, about household? Water beneath the bridge for Cruz.

Video clip from Morning Joe:

Cheney has needed to proceed to remind Ted that his blind willingness to help a person over defending his household is sort of “un-Texan.” Joe Scarborough had enjoyable pointing it out to Cruz this morning, whereas additionally observing that it was silly for Cruz to proceed this struggle as a result of he so clearly has nothing to realize:

“After we are children, we’d stick our arms on the recent range — ow — and also you don’t preserve doing it. Ted, he retains going after Liz Cheney. Simply transfer alongside, stroll previous the recent range, as a result of she’s going to speak about he’s not an actual man for not standing up for his spouse.

I imply, my God, and he or she stated he’s not an actual man for not standing up for his daddy. It’s exhausting for me to consider, as a result of he’s from Texas. Most males I do know in Texas, for those who insult their spouse or their daddies? I do know Texans, they don’t put up with that, and Liz understands, she’s from Wyoming. In Wyoming, they don’t take kindly to folks accusing their daddy of homicide and calling their spouse ugly, however right here is poor Ted, he’s simply going proper together with it. Due to Liz Cheney, we’re reminded of that when once more.”

After which Scarborough hit residence on precisely why Cruz permits all this to occur. He has no selection. He has made his mattress with Trump and thereby given up all independence within the title of “loyalty.” In keeping with Scarborough:

…. I used to be mistaken about deficits, I used to be mistaken. No, I’m who I’m. I hope I’m maturing and rising in areas the place I had blind spots, however I’m who I’m and Liz Cheney is who she is. Verify the document, she had a 95-percent ACU price, I had a 95-percent ACU price. I’ve modified just a little bit right here and there, like all people, does, however Ted Cruz bought his soul to a failed sport present host and he’s the one who’s bobbing round like a pinball machine, like, ‘Donald Trump is essentially the most horrible human being ever, he’s trash, and the way dare he say that about my spouse and the way dare he say that about my dad assassinating JFK,’ and Donald Trump will get energy and abruptly abruptly, the pinball machine retains going for Ted.”

This brings us again round to a different long-known Cruz trait. That his judgment has all the time given approach in pursuit of energy. Cruz’s allegiance to Trump is definitely momentary and transactional. For now, Trump serves a Cruz want, proximity, and viability with energy.

However the dynamic could change, quicker than some assume, and at that time, Cruz goes to have a complete host of recent self-inflicted issues. Furthermore, Cruz shouldn’t be going to have plenty of goodwill to fall again upon. In any case, he’s probably essentially the most hated man within the U.S. Senate. There received’t be anybody round to catch him when and if he falls.

And everybody tied to Trump finally falls. You’d assume {that a} man as good as Ted would’ve figured that out by now.
