This post has been reflected to update just how much Sen Ted Cruz’s web presence sucks.
Dude. Y’all. The guy is a sitting senator running for president who let Tedcruz.com slip between his fingers. It’s his damned name! What the hell is wrong with this guy?!?!?
You know, if you’ve had your eyes on the presidency since your first Senate election, you should probably, you know, prepare in advance. Not only do you need staffers, fundraisers, dark money PACs and unpaid interns, you also need an adept web presence. (see: President Barack Obama)
Which brings me to Sen. Ted Cruz, who launched his presidential campaign this morning. The firebrand freshman senator forgot to buy Tedcruzforamerica.com. So instead of a beaming Cruz-as-superman welcoming the Chosen Ones to his campaign bunker, you are redirected to…Healthcare.gov, a portal for President Barack Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act.
And Cruz’s nemesis.
Maybe you remember Cruz and others forced a 16 day government shutdown in 2013 by refusing to vote for a budget bill that didn’t repeal the entire ACA. After Congress passed a clean budget bill, Cruz and his right-wing allies were slammed for their actions. Backbenchers, fringe types, they were called.
Naturally those are fightin’ words. And Cruz, the humble junior senator from Texas, is all ready to fight regardless who criticizes him.
Because when does criticism ever stop Cruz?
