    A complete waste of time and taxpayer money. With all the problems this nation has, Mr. Cruz chose to hold everything up for a narcissistic side show. Pathetic. Mr. Cruz – and the nation – would be better served if Mr. Cruz would just shut up and listen to others for a change.

    But this is a COMPLETE waste of time. Like I have written before, our news media gives events of little importance way too much time!!

    I'm thinking 'Depends' or a Foley catheter. Maybe he borrowed some diapers from Vitter!

    Whatever...the arrogant blowhard couldn't even comprehend the point of "Green Eggs & Ham". He's supposed to be smart, eh?

    Up until last night, the world was laughing at republicans stupidity. Now, after Cruz great debacle, even republicans are laughing at their own stupidity.
