Drop Dead, Ted!

During the Republican debate this week, Ted Cruz referred derisively to Donald Trump’s “New York Values“. So New York gave Cruz the city’s official bird:

Drop Dead, Ted

The New York Post got in a jab against Cruz as well, saying about his “New York Values” jab:

That line aimed to get Iowa voters to contrast him with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But it rings pretty odd once you know of his history with at least two big New York banks.

The Post is referring to the revelation that Cruz borrowed $1 million from Goldman Sachs and Citibank for his Senate campaign and violated the law by not disclosing it to the FEC.

    I thought this guy was supposed to be a “master debater” (there’s a joke in there somewhere, with an Ivy League pedigree no less. Instead, after Cruz plays the short game by disrespecting 8+ million New Yorkers in favor of sucking up to a few thousand Iowa cornhuskers, he gets “shlonged” by Trump, who plays the 9/11 card.

    Then again, he probably knows most NY’ers are too smart to vote for a phony like him anyway, should he ever stand for election before them, though in the process revealing his transparent hypocrisy to anyone paying attention.

    Cruz likely thought it through quickly and decided, “Hey… The few New Yorkers who vote GOP are too well educated to vote for Trump in any case, and what does it matter if I piss of the Democrats? Might as well say something that will get headlines.”

    And, guess what? Cruz got headlines.

    It’s like when Trump says something really stupid… and his poll numbers go UP!
