Generally when you have stomach distress, there are some warning signs. You'll feel everything from uneasiness. Stomach grumbling. Pains and the occasional musical accompaniment, often followed by the shouts of "Who cut the cheese?" or "he who smelt it, dealt it."
This past weekend, I experienced a similar set of symptoms, but it wasn't because of something I ate. It was something I heard. And no, it wasn't mass hysteria from crazy Uncle Bill asking my cousin to "pull my finger." I was too busy rushing to open a window, hoping to let the stench out of the room. CNN was on polluting the airwaves.
It was this conversation with Candy Crowley and Rafael Cruz, America's favorite Canuck.
How could one person be so totally out of touch with reality? And when did Candy develop instant laryngitis to not call out the senator on his totally outrageous claims? Your guess is as good as mine. Surely, any similarity to real life as told by Cruz is purely coincidental. Former Governor Dean was right, “God help us if he ever becomes anything more than a senator from Texas.”
