You can bet the memorial was planned months, if not years, in advance of Mandela's death. Since Obama was going to be there, the Secret Service knew exactly who was going scratch their ass at the ceremony and when they were going to do it. Teabag Ted was part of the US delegation so yeah, he knew the speaker lineup. Again, his walkout was no more than showboating for his flash-in-the-pan presidential run in 2016.
I find it telling that Dems are still depending on Cruz and the Paul Brouns in Georgia to speak and remove all doubt..From my perspective, the GOP has circled the wagons quite well since reopening the gov't..Hence, the "minimal" budget so GOPees could get back to bashing ACA, before their primaries .
