    Article is here.
    You probably shouldn't be peddling lies. Cruz's speech last over 20 hours with the assistance of a handful of other Republicans asking questions and I believe one or two democrats making counterpoints.

    But that won't stop him from trying and a bunch of TPs from pushing for it.

    He doesn't need to get the nomination to gut the GOP's chances for winning the White House. The RNC can do their utmost to cancel out the TP circus the 2012 primary turned into but that will only cause even more rancor in the party.

    But even as the RNC limits exposure the next GOP primary will be choke full of entertainment value....

    Congrats, you're right up there with the Liberal douches.
    If you haven't noticed, things are progressing to the point where we could be playing for keeps. I take that seriously - to some extent - and I'm not about to just play by the rules of a stacked political deck. Sorry if that offends you.

Both movie actors? I do find that a little concerning. Then again it should fit they dream crap up all the time.

    If you say so

    Reagan and the Russians



    The Cold War ended despite President Reagan's arms buildup, not because of it--or so former President Gorbachev told the authors
