Larry Wilmore compares Ted Cruz to the KKK

Professional morons, that is.

On last night’s “Nightly Show,” host Larry Wilmore hit a new low when he actually questioned Ted Cruz’s — er, well — “manhood” saying, “Do you know how small your d*ck has to be for you to do something like that?”

The “that” Wilmorewas referring to is an old video of Cruz frying up bacon on a machine gun:

But back to Wilmore, is this even funny? Maybe a few libs liked it, but it’s certainly not anything new:

What’s worse is that Wilmore also compared Ted Cruz to the KKK:

Transcript via Newsbusters:

He’s going to do everything the KKK does. That is his agenda. He falls in line with the KKK. Every single fucking thing that they do, hes doing to do. Absolutely. Hes and no global warming? Come on, son, really?

What an awful person Wilmore is.

Sen. Ted Cruz speaks out in support of Houston’s #StandWithPastors campain

http://twitter.com/#!/caljv/status/522548884346646528

Sen. Ted Cruz appeared Thursday night with Sean Hannity to draw some much needed media attention to the #StandWithPastors movement. What is Houston’s problem this time? As Breitbart Texas reports, Houston’s gender and sexual anti-discrimination ordinance, opposed by the pastors of hundreds of Houston churches, subpoenas their “constitutionally protected sermons and other communications.” As Cruz wrote on his website:

Religious liberty is the very first protection in the Bill of Rights, the foundation of all of our liberties. The City of Houston’s subpoenas demanding that pastors provide the government with copies of their sermons is both shocking and shameful. For far too long, the federal government has led an assault against religious liberty, and now, sadly, my hometown of Houston is joining the fight. This is wrong. It’s unbefitting of Texans, and it’s un-American. The government has no business asking pastors to turn over their sermons. These subpoenas are a grotesque abuse of power, and the officials who approved them should be held accountable by the people.

The #StandWithPastors hashtag has been adopted in opposition to Houston’s ordinance.

More from Newsweek on the process underway:

Colorados process of choosing delegates, who will attend the summer convention, began two months ago at the precinct and county levels. The final slate of delegates will be determined Friday at congressional district meetings and on Saturday at the state convention.

Colorado offers the Republicans 37 delegates, and 19 bounddelegates are needed to claim victory in the Centennial State. The breakdown is as follows: Republicans award three delegates to each of the seven congressional districts and another 13 at the state convention. The three remaining delegates are unbound party leaders.

Team Trump has been having a rough go of it so far, including reports of delegates not even completing the paperwork to get on the ballot:

Precisely.

New polling out of Iowa suggests a method to the Ted Cruz birther madness

A new poll out from Public Policy Polling suggests that Ted Cruz’s Canadian birth might be a problem for the candidate on caucus day with 47% of Iowa Republicans saying someone who is born outside of the U.S. shouldn’t be allowed to run for president:

Oof.

Could this be one explanations for why Cruz is in “free fall” in Iowa? Cruz’s lead is down to 0.5% in the Real Clear Politics poll average:

Questioning if Cruz is a “natural born” citizen and thus able to serve as president has become a staple in GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s stump speech:

Candidates Rand Paul and Carly Fiorina have played the birther card of late, too:

And this is actually a good point:

Maybe this will be the year to finally settle it?

Chuck Todd embarrasses self during last night’s debate?

One of the better moments at last night’s CNBC debate was when Ted Cruz called out the moderators for their idiotic questions and hit Democrat candidates as a really just a “debate between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks.”

Cruz meant the Bolshevik/Menshevik line as critique of the Dem debate moderators who accepted the candidates’ embrace of socialism without any critique of the failed economic doctrine, but that was lost on the CNBC crew last night:

It was also lost on NBC’s Chuck Todd (maybe):

We’re not sure if he was joking or not, but last night and early this morning, the reaction was pretty much in the “he’s serious” camp:

From Wikipedia:

The Mensheviks subscribed to an Orthodox Marxist view of social and economic development, believing that socialism could not be achieved in Russia due to its backward economic conditions, and that Russia would first have to experience a bourgeois revolution and go through a capitalist stage of development before socialism was technically possible and before the working class could develop the necessary consciousness for a socialist revolution.[8] Thus, the Mensheviks were opposed to the Bolshevik idea of a Vanguard party and pursuit of socialist revolution in Russia.

So, no Chuck. Mensheviks are not just socialists who speak Yiddish, be he should have known that (Or maybe he did know that):

Now there is some debate if Todd’s tweet was just a joke or not:

For the record, we don’t see any indication that Chuck Todd has specifically said he was joking however. To be continued…
