WASHINGTON – After a rambling and wide-ranging 21 hour quasi-filibuster of a motion to move forward on a government funding bill, in an attempt to defund the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, Ted Cruz has now officially overtaken a Carnival Cruise as inarguably America’s least favorite Cruz.
Senator Cruz’s crowning this week as the nation’s worst, comes only months after being named, in a Gallup poll, the world’s least enjoyed, ranking lower than both suspended Texas Rangers’ outfielder and steroid user Nelson Cruz, and the highly lethal Tomahawk cruise missile.
Weighing in on Cruz’s approval rating at a press conference Monday afternoon, actress and Cruise expert Katie Holmes mixed no words in her appraisal. “Today, having diligently weighed a variety of pros and cons, I can confidently announce that Ted has now dropped below Tom in a ranking of Cruzes I’d ever consider marrying.” Holmes was later joined on stage by Penelope Cruz, who expressed deep sympathy for her family, her one-time boyfriend Cruise, and anyone else having to share a last name even slightly resembling that of the junior United States senator from Texas.
