Ted Cruz Had A Bad Sunday

Mediaite recaps:
Anonymous GOP staffers and then fellow lawmakers spent Thursday and Friday taking shots at him, but things seriously escalated Sunday morning, when Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace said he had received opposition research in advance of Cruz’s appearance—from other Republicans. Wallace patiently but relentlessly grilled Cruz over how he intended to get the defunding CR through the Senate, as he only had the votes to stop cloture, which would mean filibustering his own bill and shutting down the government. Cruz repeatedly answered that if the government did hang a gone-to-lunch sign on the Capitol doors, it would all be thanks to Senate Majority Leader of Jerks Harry Reid’s use of “brute political power.” Wallace didn’t buy this for a second. “You say this is ‘brute political power,’” Wallace said. “It’s Senate Rule 22.”
