Dementia

I hope you are able to spare about eight minutes of your lives to watch the following speech made by Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate today.  It is one of the most deranged things I have ever heard in my life, and if this man believes even a small part of what he is saying, he is truly in need of psychiatric care.



Chances are good that this man is just a sociopathic liar who doesn't give a God damn for the truth,, as long as he can feed his delusion that he is the new Messiah, sent to rescue the world from Satanic demons.  But if he does believe any of this, he is a very disturbed individual.

I guess sociopaths are disturbed too, so he is deeply dysfunctional, regardless of how much he believes what he is saying- I can't even decide what would be worse- if he is a true believer or if he is a demagogue.  Whatever he is, we can be thankful that he has scared off the leaders of his own party, because this is the material out of which tyrants are made.

If it looks like a Joe McCarthy,
talks like a Joe McCarthy,
and acts like a Joe McCarthy
..Yogi Berra is right-
Deja vu all over again.

Tell me again about his wife who is a Goldman Sachs wealth manager?

Two good things happened:

1) President Obama did not give into their blackmail, and

2) Ted Cruz exposed himself and, therefore, he will never be president. Indeed, he's now known as "The Sarah Palin of the Senate." A death sentence on any other political ambitions if I ever heard one.

Buh Bye, Ted. And send us a postcard from Crazy Town when you get a chance.

It certainly provides some valuable insight into the mindset of the Tea Party on the PPACA.

It's just too bad he didn't sit down at an old upright piano and start singing Imagine.

Dementia? Hell, it's called narcissism with all the defense mechanisms that masquerade as dementia.
