Chris Matthews is no stranger to the outrageous. This is a man who gets tingles up his leg when he hears Obama speak. Whatever sensation he gets when he hears Obama speak, the opposite can be said for when he hears Ted Cruz speak. One thing is for certain, Ted Cruz must be doing one helluva job in Washington because he sure does bring the crazy out of the Left, and even some on the Right (John McCain)!
In a recent rant, Matthews said that Ted Cruz is “the unsmiling contemptuous face of the wild, nasty hard-right fringe of a party that once competed with the Democrats to be the country's governing party. All Cruz wants to do is prove that self-government is evil or impossible, or whatever else will justify his existence as a hard-right political bomb thrower.”
Apparently those who go to Washington and refuse to bend to its ways are now “political bomb throwers.” I'll bet that more Americans wish they had more Ted Cruz's in Washington than you would think.
