Ted Cruz Quite Possibly Just Made His Most Ridiculous Statement Ever

Its no secret that I absolutely cannot stand Texas Senator Ted Cruz. I still go back and forth between him and Sarah Palin when trying to figure out who I loathe more. Currently the edge goes to Cruz simply because hes actually a senator, whereas Sarah Palin is nothing more than a failed vice presidential candidate and the Alaska governor who quit before her first term was up.
That being said, its not difficult at all to find ample quotes from Ted Cruz that are completely absurd.
But while there are plenty of quotes proving Ted Cruz is an idiot, the context of his recent comments about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid using the nuclear option to change the rules of the Senate might just be his most ridiculous ever.
During an exchange with Bloomberg News Al Hunt, Hunt asked Cruz about the change in the rules made by Senator Reid:
Hunt: Will it complicate passing budgets or debt ceilings or anything?
Cruz: Of course it will. I mean, it will poison the atmosphere of the Senate.
Yes, thats Ted Cruz accusing Harry Reid and Democrats of poisoning the atmosphere of the Senate. The guy who many within his own party cant stand. The man who staged a fake 21-hour filibuster where he tried to compare Obamacare to Darth Vader and misconstrued the meaning of Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor. The same Senator who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to force a government shutdown, knowing that it stood absolutely zero chance at accomplishing his ridiculous goal.
The same Senator Cruz who, in his very brief time in the United States Senate, has done absolutely nothing except use his position as senator to set himself up for a 2016 presidential bid at the cost of the taxpayers, of course.
Ted Cruz epitomizes poison in the Senate. Its clear to anyone with any kind of common sense that Cruz only ran for the Senate because he had presidential ambitions for 2016 and needed a way to get his name known to voters. And since his election hes taken up the strategy that the only thing hell do is pander to the tea party, hoping that if he builds enough support with far-right Republicans, hell set himself up to claim the GOP nomination in 2016.
But like I said, you dont have to believe me many within his own party cant even stand him. Look at how quickly many leading Republicans emphatically denounced the idea of shutting down the government again once another vote on the budget will have to be held in a couple of months.
So while what he said wasnt the most asinine thing hes ever said, the context behind what he expressed might just be the most ridiculous thing Ive ever heard him say.

Running Cruz would be the single best thing the Republicans could do for the Democrats.

A Cruz Palin ticket would be a dream come true for Hillary!

The tea party is a nonfactor in politics now.
