    The Senate’s Republican leadership rhetorically took Sen. Ted Cruz to the woodshed Sunday for calling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar last week on the chamber’s floor.

    Cruz was unbowed, firing back soon after leaving the Senate floor and accusing Senate Republican leaders of marching in lockstep with Senate Democrats on such things as funding the Affordable Care Act, funding Planned Parenthood and refusing to tie an Iran nuclear deal to Iran’s recognition of Israel’s right to exist.

    “They operate as a team, expanding Washington and undermining the liberty of the people,” the Texas Republican said of Senate Democratic and Republican Leaders.

    As much as I detest Ted Cruz, he does have a valid point about both the democratic and republican leaders. They are mostly spineless, incompetent bastards only interested in covering their own tracks and pursuing their own self aggrandizement.

    Abso-friggin-lutely.

    Their responses to Cruz have proven that... he broke their rules of polite behavior... it's impolite to call a lying sack of shit a lying sack of shit... PC behavior that only applies within the good buddy system that everyone is fed up with...

    Cruz did come back at them and said something to the effect that he thought it was more important to be honest than not call a liar a liar.
