Ted Cruz was on Meet The Press Sunday. Among the nonstop idiocy was this: "The American people overwhelmingly reject ObamaCare,” Cruz said. “They understand it’s not working.
No. They don't understand. It's not fking implemented!!! Other than a few things that, clearly are working -- namely allowing young people to stay on parents' insurance, and preventing refusal of coverage because of preexisting conditions -- IT'S NOT YET FKING IMPLEMENTED!!! It's not that it's not working.
IT'S NOT YET FKING IMPLEMENTED!!!!!!!
IT'S NOT YET FKING IMPLEMENTED
Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin: each end of the teabagging spectrum. One smart, one stupid. One a deliberate liar, the other happily clueless (and, of course, because it's a requirement, a deliberate liar). Each lionized by their supporters for those very characteristics: telling them want they want to hear, enabling their believing what they prefer to believe because truth is too darn disturbing. If god wanted people to have health care, well, he'd have given them.... wait! Obamacare?
[Amusing side-note concerning those teabaggingly strange bedfellows: Sarah Palin loves to deride those East Coast Ivy League snotty smart people; Ted Cruz might be the height of the stereotype. While at Harvard Law, he organized study groups and would only allow graduates of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. Not those "lesser" Ivies; and not, horror of horrors, any non-Ivies!]
