At this point conservatives should probably dispel themselves of any notion that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is any kind of an anti-Washington outsider. Now that the latest round of Trump thumping has been delivered in Tuesday’s primaries the establishment is going whole hog for Cruz as their newest great hope to stop the Trump revolution. With even bipartisan Beltway consensus wet dream Paul Ryan himself denouncing the Donald it’s now on for for the big throw down. The time is running out before even more Americans start to get the idea that they just may be able to peel the bloodsucking leeches off of their backs, get out of the lousy sell-out trade deals and take their own damned country back from the swine who have stolen it from them.
But that won’t happen if Lindsey Graham has anything to say about it. The Palmetto State princess announced today that he is not only all aboard the Cruz bandwagon but will also be working as a fundraiser to gather as much ill-gotten loot from big donors that he can carry in order to help underwrite the war on Trump. It’s mind-boggling that Graham – John McCain’s ventriloquist dummy – can do a complete 180 so soon after musing about murdering Cruz but politics indeed makes for strange bedfellows. That is especially the case when it comes to career Washington gravy train riders like the miserably failed former presidential candidate.
Politico reports that “Lindsey Graham throws support to Ted Cruz”:
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has thrown his support to Ted Cruz, calling him “the best alternative” to Donald Trump.
According to an invitation obtained by POLITICO, Graham will headline a fundraiser for Cruz on Monday.
This marks the second senator to publicly support Cruz, and is a significant development: Graham, a more centrist South Carolina senator, until recently openly detested his colleague from Texas. But in recent weeks he has suggested that Cruz stands the best chance of beating Donald Trump.
“’Backing Cruz or ‘supporting,’ yes,” confirmed Graham communications director Kevin Bishop on Thursday.
According to the invitation reviewed by POLITICO, which could be in its draft stages, Graham will headline a fundraiser for Cruz on Monday at Clyde’s Gallery Place. Tickets start at $1,000.
The event, which is held the same day Cruz will address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is described as a fundraiser to “honor and support a great friend of Israel, and the Jewish people, and the next President of the United States, Ted Cruz.”
“He’s the best alternative to Donald Trump,” Graham said in a statement.
Graham’s efforts come as the GOP has now abandoned any and all pretenses of fairness in regards to Trump with Ryan acknowledging that a brokered convention is coming – he was endorsed as the nominee by drunken John Boehner – and the media is working to sell it to the public. It is a great example of how the party establishment has been jerking around the base for decades and now that people have finally caught on to the big scam they are just doing away with the democratic process altogether.
