QB Mitch McConnell's attempted pass to Jeb Bush intercepted by teammate Ted Cruz

[mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’C001098′ ]’s speech on the floor last night before passage of the atrocious budget deal is truly a masterpiece – a conservative magnum opus if you will. You must watch it. It lasts an hour and a half (many thanks to the Cruz staff who surely helped put it together).

In excruciatingly gory detail, Cruz describes the alliance between the Establicrats of both parties, K-street and big corporate interests who aim to destroy our country and our children’s future by the thousand cuts of debt-laden corruption. He names names, he takes no prisoners. It’s reminiscent of another Man who entered the lion’s den, braided a chord and drove the leeches out.

In past seasons the Establicrats would benefit from spending issues because they were viewed as true warriors in the fight. But their last QB (G.W. Bush) got caught moving the ball down the field in the wrong direction. Surely, the fans thought, its an isolated incident and the rest of the team is on our side? Well, G.W. is gone and voters gave the Republicans the majority in the house and later in the senate. It looked like we could finally win some games. Conservatives thought they were electing champions to battle the opposition. After years of demoralizing losses, we fielded a team we thought could win. Now, after some bold truth-telling from members of the team who are loyal, we are confronted with reality. Turns out the team we’ve been supporting was betting on the other team to win all along and throwing games on purpose, for their own benefit.

You see, Establicrat Republicans are now hurt worse than the Democrats when debt and spending are issues on the campaign trail. How do you solve this problem if you are a politician? You take it off the table.  There’s just no hope anymore for a candidate like Jeb! when conservatives are fired up over ongoing debt ceiling votes and cromibus spending bills. Look at the last 2 midterms when they defeated the Democrats. Now that the voters know guys like Jeb!, Boehner, McConnell are actually on the other team, the Establicrats see the writing on the wall. Their only hope is one final play to give the other team the victory before everyone gets kicked off the team.

This budget deal is so obviously crooked and liberal, and the Republican deal makers so obvious in their malfeasance, that it can only be understood as an attempt to win at losing. The addiction to gambling and throwing games has gotten so bad, that they no longer care if its obvious. A win is now a loss. The other team must be made to win at all costs.

Well, after running a number of trick plays designed to help the other team while looking like they we an honest effort, at least one of our players who was not in on the traitorous scheme realized what was happening. QB Mitch McConnell was going to make a pass to Jeb! who was going to run all the way to the 1 yard line and blatantly hand the ball to the other team. The fix was in, so to speak.The play went something like this. After [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000355′ ] takes the snap from [mc_name name=’Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’B000589′ ], Boehner throws a block that will (at least on camera) look like the ultimate sacrifice. He’ll take a season-ending injury for team. McConnell will make a nice pass to Jeb! who will complete the treachery. But, at the last moment, Ted Cruz changes his assigned pattern and steps in front of the ball. He gets tackled, but he’s not giving the ball back to McConnell.

For as many political seasons as I can remember, the Republicans have represented limited government and lower debt (at least in name only). That’s no longer the case. The mask is off. We actually have Obama to thank for it – his extreme leftism. After all, heroes are born in the crucible of villainy. The traitors are now exposed not just by their unwillingness to oppose the enemy, but their eagerness to aide them.

Now we just need to give the ball to a true champion and get behind them against enemies both foreign and domestic.
