Angry Birds vs. Wacko Birds, Round 2: Cruz and McCain

688acourtesy benjamin lee Angry Birds vs. Wacko Birds, Round 2: Cruz and McCain

Over the weekend, we noted the vituperation
spewed by what might be called the “Angry Bird” faction of the
Republican party (Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham) toward what
they consider the “Wacko Bird” faction (in McCain’s term).
McCain said:

“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt
election, anything else,”McCain said. “But I also think that when,
you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get
the media megaphone.”
Asked to clarify, McCain said he was referencing “Rand Paul,
Cruz, Amash, whoever.”

Rand Paul responded by professing his respect for McCain and
Amash tweeted back snarkily about McCain’s dinner with Barack Obama
the night of Paul’s epic filibuster. Now Ted Cruz tells
The Washington Examiner’s Byron York:

“Some senators may choose to hurl insults and personal attacks,”
says new Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. “That’s their prerogative. I
have no intention of reciprocating.”

As Glenn Reynolds at
Instapundit observes, “TED CRUZ POLITELY INDICATES ;that he
doesn’t take John McCain’s attacks seriously. ;That’s got to
hurt.”
