TedCruz Gage Tea Party Darling Ted Cruz Wins Senate Primary, Serves Chick fil A At Election PartyOh, Texas. Don’t you know the tea party is so 2010? Apparently not, because you just delivered an upset victory to tea party darling Ted Cruz in the Senate primary race against Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. Dewhurst led in the initial primary voting 44.6 percent to 34.2 percent, but Cruz has now managed to win the runoff by a margin of 55 percent to 45 percent with most precincts reporting.

To be fair, unlike many tea party candidates, Cruz’s resume is actually pretty bad-ass. The 41 year-old Cruz served as Texas’s Solicitor General and previously worked as an advisor to President George W.Bush. He received his B.A. from Princeton, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, and then went on to clerk for William Rehnquist. (Don’t get any ideas about the presidency, though, Republicans. He was born in Canada.) [Edit: Actually, Republicans, feel free to piss your pants in excitement about the presidency. Cruz's parents were both U.S. citizens at the time of his birth. We don't call ourselves the Dolt for nothing.]

While Cruz has not had the opportunity to flaunt his conservative cred in any legislative position yet, he appears to be seriously GOP4Evah. Cruz took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to thank Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, and Jim DeMint for their support. Oh, and he served Chick-Fil-A at his election party.

    Apparently it's debatable whether Republicans should be pissing their pants or not. From George Romney's wiki page:

    "Questions were occasionally asked about Romney's eligibility to run for President owing to his birth in Mexico, given the ambiguity in the United States Constitution over the phrase "natural-born citizen".[14][169][172] (Romney departed the race before the matter could be more definitively resolved,[169] although the preponderance of opinion then and since has been that he was eligible.[172][173])"

    Are we going to see a Cruz-Castro match-up sometime soon?

      They both need a little more experience, but who knows in 8-12 years?

    Here's hoping this guy is enough of a jerk to give the Democrats a chance at winning this Senate seat … if not this year, then when he comes up for reelection in 2018.

      Pretty unlikely, I think. For reference, 1.1 million Texans voted in the Republican run-off, while only 236,000 voted in the Democratic run-off.

    Ted Cruz' single largest donor, Peter Thiel of San Francisco, is openly gay and supports same-sex marriage. Thiel donated to Cruz $251,000 in 2009 and recently donated $5,000 for Cruz' Senate primary. He is also the largest single donor to the group backing Cruz – the Club for Growth Action super PAC giving them $1 million in May. Cruz is deceiving Texans about his alliances while claiming to be a Tea Party Republican. It seems that Sarah Palin should have done more homework about Ted before endorsing him, if she is truly opposed to homosexuality. She chased the spotlight at a Chick-fil-a for face time and Cruz bought their fried chicken to serve at one of his victory party. Seems to me they are both working overtime fleecing the teaparty votes and money.

      That's really interesting. I didn't know that about Peter Thiel. I just looked up his donations, and he also gave nearly $1 million to the Ron Paul super-PAC and also donated to other anti-gay candidates. I can't understand that. If Thiel is Libertarian, why not donate to Gary Johnson, who is strongly in favor of marriage equality?

      As for Cruz, I don't don't think he is necessarily disingenuous as to his stance on gay marriage. He's just not going to turn down that kind of money just because the guy happens to differ with him on one particular issue.
