Ted Cruz, John Boehner Exchange Ugly, Profane Insults

What a waste of time.

Over the course of the last several years, American politics have changed immensely.  In fact, it’s hard to recognize the statesmen of yesteryear amid this sea of desperate and angry fortunate sons who’ve ascended the ranks of the legislative branch based on their nepotism alone.

And, scurrying about within this cavalcade of cattiness are a number of more familiar politicians, who have decided that it would be worth their time to send a few jabs back and forth.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz doubled down on his response to former House Speaker John Boehner after he told the Texas Republican to “go f**k yourself” in a leaked audio recording.

“I think he was probably recording at nine or ten in the morning so obviously he had too much wine that day already,” Cruz told the Daily Caller on Saturday. “This guy is a little unhinged.”

Cruz on Friday mockingly tweeted that he wears Boehner’s “drunken, bloviated scorn” proudly alongside a clip from an upcoming CBS News interview with Boehner in which he calls Cruz a “jerk” and accuses him of “making a lot of noise” but not being especially productive in Congress.

“The Swamp is unhappy,” Cruz tweeted. “I wear with pride his drunken, bloviated scorn. Please don’t cry,” the lawmaker joked, referencing Boehner’s reputation for appearing publicly emotional at various points throughout his career.

The ex-speaker has taken several shots at Cruz, including while recording his audiobook when he reportedly told Cruz to “f—” himself in several off-script moments.

Of course, the sheer amount of time that these two have spent on their retorts begs the question of what exactly they’ve done for we the people lately.
