   Keep rocking the boat Ted … Anything that displeases the intelligentia on both sides of the aisle is good for those of us that don’t profit from DC.

The Rio Norte Line

That would be Senator Ted Cruz from Texas actually doing what he said he would do during his campaign.

I guess it rattles them when the newbies don’t just fall in line with this false sense of “comity” in the “greatest deliberative body”. Since he is Hispanic, I guess they can’t call him racist – so they try to pull the Tailgunner Joe card:

This article is a welcome companion to a post of ours yesterday “According to Whom ?” It cannot be repeated often enough … the media is in full ” Battlespace Preparation” mode . While they will report none of it , they are intimately aware of their boy’s shortcomings and are pulling out all the stops to convince you , the voting public , that the Romney campaign is a lost cause . Do not fall for it . The only way they can win is if you stay home on November 6 . DON”T LET THAT HAPPEN . Vote and take a friend .
