Ted Cruz, the Republican Senate candidate debates the sacrificial Democrat, Paul Sadler, a lawyer from East Texas with a long history in local politics. Sadler's campaign slogan is, "When you cut me I bleed Texas." Uh ok.
Ted Cruz (former Solicitor General of Texas) graduated from Princeton. In 1992, he was named Speaker of the Year and (Debate) Team of the Year. Cruz then earned his JD, Magna cum laude, from Harvard. Cruz has argued before the Supreme Court 9 times. Not a fair fight.
Why Sadler agreed to take on Cruz in a debate format, I will never understand...but the results are pure gold. At times, Cruz looks as if he is trying to stifle a laugh when Sadler attempts to answer most questions from the moderators. Sadler runs the range of emotion on nearly every question - from defensive, to righteously angry, to just plain uninformed. While Cruz explains his positions, Sadler sniffs, fidgets, and rolls his eyes like a child being forced to nap during recess. Sadler commits every debate faux pas that COULD be committed - he interrupts, shouts "I think you lie, Ted," brings up Mrs. Cruz ....just unbelievable. Even the moderators were frustrated with Sadler. Hysterical.
