Endless propaganda. This is a taxpayer-funded show targeted at Pre-K children. It doesn’t need to be talking about sex or sexuality at all. https://t.co/YV3HUB5pCt

He’s at that tricky age for a would-be GOP master debater. Too old to be classed as a Young Gun, too young to be a Grey Eminence (also, that beard: Euggh). And the younger Repub strivers — Cotton, Hawley, Gaetz — are as cruel and amoral as he ever was, but with no pretention to grace or civility.
(Also, I suspect his kids liked Sesame Street better than they ever liked Daddy.)
Just look how the crass social-media mob treated his last entirely earnest & principled defense of his comrades in the Party!

Shit, Rhea Perlman could put Cruz on the deck.

Tailgunner Ted Cruz enlivened the electric Twitter machine for nearly 12 hours by getting in a wrangle with actor Ron Perlman in defense of Rep. Jim Jordan, the coatless nuisance from Ohio. https://t.co/lBep8OwXYr
