Senator Ted Cruz on the Washington Party

Ted Cruz on the Washington Party

In a rare Sunday session held to consider the must pass Highway Bill, Republican Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), called up an amendment to revive the Export Import Bank and filled the tree to prevent any other amendments, aside from a sisyphean symbolic vote to repeal Obamacare (which, as expected, failed to reach cloture).

Senator Ted Cruz' (R-TX)  floor speech on Sunday Bloody Sunday, the junior Senator from Texas had better hope that the campaign trail keeps him busy as he should not expected any invites to Cocktail Parties in the District of Calamity (sic).

Cruz's cri-de-couer floor speech may not help him in the current Grand Old Party Senate Cloakroom, but may curry favor from anti-establishment supporters on the campaign hustings.  Assuming the Cruz remains in the Senate, he may be standing alone or with several new practical conservative colleagues.
