So, in March, at the start of coronavirus lockdown, I went on Amazon to try to buy toilet paper. I bought the only kind that was available. It finally arrived yesterday, shipped from China. Pitiful!
So not only is Ted Cruz an asshole, he's a stupid asshole.
Then again, this is right on a par with his reading of Green Eggs and Ham.

Yes, he's stupid. And you would think a U.S. Senator would have a large enough network of associates that he could source a few packages of TP without resorting to buying from an overseas Amazon seller. Has he no friends? :lol:

He got exactly what he deserved yet he's too stupid to even see or appreciate the irony and humor in the outcome.

I’ve always thought of Tea Turd Ted as a Floriduh Man, thus am rarely surprised at his stupididity.

There must be some good laughs happening throughout the Amazon organization.

One of the hallmarks of emotional intelligence is the ability to manage impulses, e.g., delay gratification.

When toilet paper sold out during the initial panic buying, I didn't have any immediate worries because I keep a healthy supply since I depend on rides to the store. I saw all the off-kilter stuff slowly appear on Amazon, but figured I'd wait until I saw the name brands come back (except Georgia Pacific, which was available first but I boycott.) Maybe a month or so, the name brands started coming back along with some bamboo stuff, etc., but it was a little like getting tickets to Comic-con — you had to be online before it sold out. Amazon Fresh started having some available too, including their own brand (which gets okay reviews). Had Senator Cruz waited a few weeks, he could have had enough Cottonelle or Angel Soft or whatever to last who knows how long — they even had boxes of 60 Cottonelle rolls at one point.

The point is . . . well, I don't know what the point is.

The point is, "TP panic" is soooo... 60+ days ago. He's looking for sympathy now? :mrgreen:

Yeah, but blaming the Chinese is a weird distraction attempt too.

I call fake on Ted. Or at least cheap. I ordered brand-name Quilted Northern from Amazon on March 12, delivered March 15. 18 roll, about $30.00. (I think we might finally open it next week.) Either he went for the super-cheap or chose a sketchy vender.
Edit: I guess the exact order date matters. But, when nothing came after 30 days he should have cancelled.

I tell you what teddy boy, since mentioning jim jordan and wrestling is... problematic, why don’t we say fuck him and just make it you & me. I’ll give 50k to Black Lives Matter and you can keep all the tax payer money you were thinking of spending.
I really don't understand what's going on here, but worth noting. Unclear how Gym Jordan and Matt Gaetz are involved :confused:

I think there must be a good chunk of the twatter chain here we are missing. FWIW, I think Perlman could quite easily break either of both of them in to little whimpering pieces. Now that I would pay to watch.

Wonkette 'splains all about Gaetz/Cruz v. Perlman. It is, of course, funny and stupid.

Lyin' Ted fancies himself an edgy culture warrior, it is an attempt to position himself for a 2024 run. Remember during the Kavanaugh confirmation he put himself on the front lines in the War on Beer by making sure he was photographed carrying a case out of a store. It's a very tricky game because before he jumps into something, he has to make sure it is Trump-approved.

Lyin' Ted is well, lyin' Ted, and LaRumps butt monkey. So none of this is surprising. His entire life is based on delusion.

Marco & I haven’t always agreed, but to see him slandered by this oleaginous cretin is shameful. Schmidt wouldn’t understand—he’s spent his life serving, & then betraying, powerful men—but for those whose families suffered & bled under Castro’s tyrannny, this is beyond the pale.

I can't believe he knows what oleaginous is let alone how to use it. I simply refuse. And yes he is "n" heavy.
