The last person I heard say "God bless Ted Cruz" was the morbidly Christian Sarah Palin. Hence it only seems right that GOP Congressman Peter King--he of little such faith--says he's receiving oodles of "vile" phone messages from the piously born-again-with-their-heads-up-their-asses crowd.
"The vehemence of the phone calls coming into the office. I don’t care, people can call me whatever they want … I haven’t heard such vile, profane, obscene language," King said on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe."
"I’m not saying Ted Cruz is responsible for all his supporters, but he has tapped into a dark strain here in the American political psyche here, and again, the most obscene, profane stuff you can imagine all from people who say they support the Constitution" ...
and love Jesus.
The American far right makes a habit of it. They take a back seat to no one when it comes to proclaiming a passionate love of country and God, and yet no one so regularly despoils both of them more.
Their hypocrisy isn't shocking. Not at all. By now it can't be. It's just tedious.
