"Victory"? Somebody buy Ted Cruz a friggin' dictionary

Last edited Thu Oct 17, 2013, 11:01 AM - Edit history (2)


Ted Cruz thinks that defeat is victory; or at least, he thinks that being ahead during a contest means more than who actually wins or loses at the end of a contest: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/10/16/cruz-it-was-a-remarkable-victory-until-senate-republicans-caved-on-the-shutdown/

Of course, Teapublicans did not win a victory at the end of the recent shutdown/default debacle. At the end, they were forced to “surrender”, in the words of Speaker Boehner. Most of us see a surrender as a, well, defeat. But not Teddy Boi Cruz. In his world:
•Cleveland won a remarkable victory last week, because they led at the half. (Of course, Detroit won the game later)
•Rome won a remarkable victory over Rebbe Yeshua bar Joseph when they crucified him. (Of course, the Christians are still around, and the Roman empire is long gone).
•England won a remarkable victory over the rebellious American colonies…you get the idea.

1. Ted got lots of face time on TV and is popular with the wingnut base. He

will have a lucrative future as a FOX pundit or as a grifter like Palin.
