On 1/29/12 at 4:10 P. M., I wrote in reply to a comment from Harris Jordan: “I predict Ted Cruz will self-destruct. Y’all read it here first.”
Today, Politico has a story, “Ted Cruz comes out swinging” by Manu Raju, that basically says what a flaming asshole this new Tea Party senator from Texas is and how some colleagues can’t stand him:
“Sen. Ted Cruz lost his voice a couple days ago.
“Some senators probably wish it wouldn’t come back — at least for a little while.
“In six short weeks since he became the junior Texas GOP senator, the no-nonsense freshman has quickly become a lightning rod…upending the Senate’s conventional ways, in which freshmen typically work quietly to build bridges with their colleagues.”
