Tennessee Senator Bob Corker is critical of Ted Cruz .
Could this be the beginning of the end of Ted Cruz? Demagogues have come and gone in American politics but they don't usually have public critics within their own party this soon into their fame arch. Joe McCarthy lasted a few more years than this.
With Senators Bob Corker, Tom Coburn, John McCain and even Lindsey Graham coming out against Cruz's antics could his influence already be waning? Even the loathsome Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has decided to stand up to Cruz.
McConnell has a teabagger opponent in the primary next year even though throughout the Obama Presidency he has lurched further and further to the racist right in order to avoid a primary fight. Since this has failed he has decided to be a statesman and has refused to support Teddy C and his wackjob supporters attempt to bring this nations government to its knees.
When Ted Cruz gets blamed for the government shutdown and then blamed for the default a few weeks later how much longer will his words matter? How much time after these event occur will he become more irrelevant than Sarah Palin & Michelle Bachman?
But, he will always have the support of the racist tea baggers and perhaps that and his government salary for the next four years will keep he and his family from starving.
