Today in The Blaze, following the dredging of an old - then not Senator - Ted Cruz speech in which he accused a dozen faculty at Harvard’s law school of being avowed, revolutionary Communists, the following:
Nevertheless, Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said the Texas Republican’s “substantive point” about Harvard Law School being home to Communists “was absolutely correct.” […]
“It’s curious that the New Yorker would dredge up a three-year-old speech and call it ‘news,’” Frazier said in a statement to TheBlaze late Friday.
It’s impossible to stomach this level of hypocrisy.
Senator Cruz recently spent time during the Senate’s public grilling of soon-to-be Secretary of Defense Hagel, reading old speeches from the now ex-Senator. This is precisely what his spokesperson is now claiming to be a fatuous tactic.
Perhaps. But I would find it impossible to employ a method as offense, and then bemoan it as bad taste when it is turned round to bear the other direction.
Dear god man, have some shame.
