Almost posted in response to FB comments to the effect that Ted Cruz is a “religious freak” and “lying hypocrite” with a “crook-ass daddy”:
Ofttimes, the line between “hypocrite” and “pragmatist” is razor-thin. Some would say that the pragmatists Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan could be called hypocrites, too. And, I mean, if we really want to talk about lying hypocrites, the last name “Clinton” isn’t usually long coming to the fore.
Be that as it may, I admit that I find myself really beginning to hate holding my nose when I vote. Makes it hard to get my ballot into the slot, and the Democrats who run my precinct look at me funny. But I’d vote for Cruz if he were the nominee.
Given to whom the comments were in response, I decided the better part of valor was not to post my rebuttal there. So I’m posting it here.
