Give this broad credit for trying. If I were the head of my local socialist group and saw Ted Cruz at the movies, I may try to “own” him too. I’d at least ask him why he was so mean to Luke Skywalker (see Ted Cruz Just Force Choked Mark Hamill on Net Neutrality and Ted Cruz Finishes Mark Hamill’s Jedi Training on Net Neutrality). But when it comes to owning people, Ted Cruz is the master.
So while I give her credit for trying, how stupid do you have to be to think Cruz would fall for this?
BECKY: Happy New Year.
TED CRUZ: Happy New Year.
BECKY: Say socialism will win.
TED CRUZ: It never will.
The sad thing is, she’s proud of herself. She and her socialist friends are trying to convince themselves that Ted Cruz was the one who looked like an idiot here.
What was the end game? She needed a new ringtone? She thought Cruz would flip out on her and she’d have it all for YouTube? Was the plan to cut this down to a two second clip that would obviously be taken out of context?
Instead, she embarrassed herself in a short enough clip we can watch between sips of coffee. Well done, sweetie.
Better luck next time, though! Maybe aim for a backbencher Congressman. They don’t think as quickly. Or think at all. So the playing field is more level.
