When Tea Party “darling” and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz faced off against Seth Meyers, he probably wasn’t expecting to be left visibly shaken and speechless, for over nine seconds, by the late night host.
With one swift question, he destroyed Cruz’s grandiose delusions about his miserably failed “Green Eggs and Ham” filibuster against Pres. Obama’s ultimately successful health care reform.
Cruise was left visibly disturbed, and even angry, tha the late-night host wouldn even dare to call him out on his self-aggrandizing bragging — and his pretending that he didn’t get his amateur Tea Party opposition to Obamacare shattered by the proven success of the law.
