Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in a recent interview that the filibuster rule change made in the Senate on Thursday will hurt the chamber's ability to pass legislation.

"It will poison the atmosphere of the Senate," Cruz said in an interview with Bloomberg Television's "Political Capital with Al Hunt," a transcript of which was posted online Friday afternoon.

First of all, considering how violent the typical Teahadist receptacle claims to be, and sometimes are when they one of their leaders puts out a violent keyword, Ted Cruz's choice of words deserves note. "Poison." And the irony is amazing as well, considering he is living embodiment of political poison, not to mention first rate whore of the plutocrats.

Secondly, it looks like this discredited Teahadist loser isn't planning to shut the fuck up anytime soon. As much as that is good for Democrats' prospects, just look at Teahadist's recent electoral failures for evidence of that, this guy's existence in politics delays Americans reconciliation and coming together to stop the plutocratic divide and conquer campaign and its subsequent environmental and economic catastrophes.

Finally, my inspiration for my little rant here: I am just incredulous that this pawn of the plutocrats has the gall to claim that filibuster reform, which happens to coincide with DEMOCRACY, could poison the Senate any more than their abuse of the filibuster had already poisoned the political atmosphere?! And how much Mr Cruz has poisoned politics in general.

I can't wait for the day that I no longer need to look at his smug face any more. Someone please defeat this loser in his next election and send him back to Canada. Please?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
