TedCruzThe Senate has traditionally been a body guided by a cordial, collegial conduct. The arrival of Sen. Ted Cruz in January changed all that – he has, in short, trashed the place. Therefore it should not come as a surprise, particularly following the Tea Party’s attempt to pour the nation’s credit rating down the toilet, that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is not holding back on his and others’ opinion of the freshman Texas stooge:

He is a laughing stock to everybody but him,” Reid continued. “What has he accomplished other than raising some money for president? And if this man can get the nomination to be the Republican nominee for president, I pity the Republican Party.”

“Ted Cruz is smart,” Reid said. “He has always been able to talk down to people. He is now in the Senate. People are as smart as he is. He can’t talk down to anyone anymore. But he has still not accepted that in his own head. He still thinks he’s smarter than everybody else. He might be able to work a calculus problem better than I can. But he can’t legislate better than I can.”
