Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says his music tastes completely changed after the September 11th terrorist attacks.
In a Tuesday morning interview, the newly minted presidential candidate said he used to be a classic rock fan but was disappointed in how the genre responded to the terrorist attack.
"Music is interesting. I grew up listening to classic rock. And I'll tell you sort of an odd story: My music tastes changed on 9/11. I actually intellectually find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn't like how rock music responded," Cruz said on CBS's "This Morning" when asked about his music tastes.
Yeah -- no shit. What kind of person who watched 9/11 happen (like moi -- The Gadfly), then sits around and re-analyzes their music tastes and just overnight decides that they suddenly prefer Toby Keith's beer guzzlin, flag wavin' crap to this:
9/11 instantly made Ted Cruz change his musical tastes from classic rock to country music huh?
Lol. What a steaming load of horse shit.
Perhaps ol' Ted also stopped eating french fries from his favorite hamburger outlet after 9/11 and instead began feasting on "freedom fries". Interesting to note btw that the Republican guy who was responsible for renaming the congressional menu with the term "freedom fries" after 9/11 was sent to prison in 2007 for 2 and a half years for public corruption. Eh -- birds of a feather right?....
It'd be like The Gadfly saying -- um yeah ... 'I was so disappointed by the reaction of my fellow dirty fucking liberal hippie friends (who all happened to be right) about how the Bush government responded after 9/11 that I stopped smoking hippie sticks and switched to Marlboro cigarettes -- just because you know -- this ...'
Except of course for that pesky little thing called reality -- wherein the life of the infamous Marlboro Man picture above spiraled downhill after coming back from George and Dick's little Iraq adventure and he's now nothing more than just another abandoned tool of some very rotten human beings who never gave a true and honest flying fuck about him in the first place:
Now Miller is a different symbol in a different time. As the war has dragged on, Miller's life has collapsed in the face of post-traumatic stress disorder. He draws a disability pension for his condition and his personal life is a wreck. He suffers from nightmares, panic attacks and survivor's guilt. Despite the immense goodwill of a grateful nation, Miller has slumped into struggle and despair. Last week came the news that he and his childhood sweetheart, Jessica, were getting divorced.
Marlboro Man is no longer an icon for the American warrior ethic. He is a symbol of pain and suffering and the enormous problems endured by veterans returning home. He has become the public face of shell-shock. No longer the victor, Miller has become one of the war's victims.http://www.theguardian.com/world/2006/jul/02/usa.paulharris
It's simple dear readers. Ted Cruz is phonier than a 2 and half dollar bill. Will that stop the right wing nuts from voting for him? No -- not at all. And that is what makes them dangerous --- they'd vote for an incompetent, capricious clown like that out of sheer ideological loyalty even knowing he was entirely unfit for the job.
Seriously though -- what the fuck kind of loser makes up that kind of bullshit just to score some points with the moron crowd?
Ted Cruz is pandering hard to the brain dead, knuckle dragging neanderthals of the party all right --- that is for certain. Just how many in the gutless, inspid mainstream media and the voting public will buy in to this buffoon's phoniness is still a wager --- just know this though --- when it comes to gullible, dumb ass Americans ---- there is never a dearth of supply.
