More Shiny Objects

Following up on the previous post…

upyernoz on Ted Cruz’s tantrum over the Supreme Court’s non-decision on marriage equality:

This is the first time I have seen the term “judicial activism” for not issuing a judicial decision. So now the decision not to engage in an activity is “activist.”

I get what Sen. Cruz is up to, though.  This will be part of his campaign for the presidency and once he’s over gay marriage and the Supreme Court, he’ll find another shiny object to freak out about.  He knows that his base has the attention span of an Irish setter, so he has to come up with something every other day to be outraged about.

A year ago it was Obamacare, then later it was immigrant children, followed by ISIS.  Next week, who knows; there’s plenty to choose from: Benghazi!, the IRS, the latte salute, playing golf, Michelle forcing us to drink water, eating dessert with a salad fork.

Republicans are never happy unless they’re trashing their shorts about something every day, and they go through their life like they have gallstones.  What a miserable way to live.
