Fewer Americans now describe themselves as supporters of the Tea Party movement than did at the height of the movement in 2010, or even at the start of 2012. Today's 22% support nearly matches the record low found two years ago.
And if William Shatner wasn't bad enough, it seems the Canadians have afflicted us with another B-grade actor.
Believe it or not, it looks like Sen. Ted Cruz is still a Canadian citizen. Although it has now been over a month since he promised to renounce his Canadian citizenship – which he obtained by virtue of his birth in Calgary, Alberta.
Why, you ask.
There is one section, however, that could cause Cruz some trouble, and perhaps that is the reason for his delay. Question 5 instructs the applicant to “attach proof” that he is (or will become) a citizen of a country other than Canada.

“When the Wall Street Journal starts to belittle you … That’s what these people read every day,” said one senior GOP aide.I'll keep a candle burning for his candidacy anyway. Go Ted go, even if you really don't understand what the fuck Green Eggs and Ham was all about.
And back with a rapid update. Donald is impressed by the junior senator from Texas. Yeah I know, I'm surprised too.
After 20-Plus Hours, Senator Ted Cruz Still Going Strong Against #ObamaCare
It would be just cruel to tell him that Harry Reid offered Cruz another hour to go on with his phony filibuster and the huckster turned it down.
And thanks to the Mad Jewess for this link to Jon Stewart. I do congratulate her on choosing an appropriate adjective for her nom du internet.
