Green Eggs and Wev

Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is on an epic filibuster in the Senate chamber, 20 hours and counting, during which he has "touched on a broad mix of subjects and sources, including lyrics from a song by country music star Toby Keith; quotations from the popular reality television show 'Duck Dynasty;' recollections of how his father, Rafael Cruz, used to make green eggs and ham for breakfast; and a recent acceptance speech by actor Ashton Kutcher at an awards show."

What has prompted this display of political pugnacity (aside, of course, from a desperate bid for media attention in service to Cruz's presidential ambitions)? Why, trying to block funding for the Affordable Health Care Act, of course.

This is what moves Republicans to action: Cutting funding for food stamps and trying to block funding for affordable healthcare.

Great party you've got there, assholes.
