There are so many subtexts being played out

(btw - I think he meant it is the wedge for the GOP.)

Cruz stole the idea (the filibuster) and shifted the debate. He talked for 22 hours. That makes him more "manly."

This whole race is being played on so many levels.

If 'Rand Paul Becomes a Liberal Hero' - that actually hurts him in his own party. He's got a bunch of anti-war pansises clinging to him whereever he goes.

Cruz is pandering to the very base of the party. But there's not enough there there to close the deal.

But - Cruz becomes the new hero of the GOP.

And isn't it fitting? They love losers in the GOP.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
