A twenty-four-hour Cruz

Ted Cruz flew to Cancun yesterday with his family as his fellow Texans struggled. He is now, the Associated Press says, “expected to return immediately.”

Every time I see Ted Cruz, I am glad that I am someone with more scruples. And a better beard.

[About the post title: I was thinking of the Gilligan’s Island theme song. But it seems that Cruz’s round-trip may take less than twenty-four hours. Ashley Parker reports that Cruz spent ten hours in Mexico and landed back in Texas “almost exactly” twenty-four hours after departing.]

I managed to go to bed just before the news was breaking (on Twitter) that Cruz might have gone to Mexico while his constituents were freezing. So glad I got a night's sleep instead. Woke up to it as an established fact. He clearly thinks his job is to do a podcast and issue opinions, which he can do from anywhere.

Like so many of his colleagues, he has no shame.
