Eighteen Hours and Counting

Ted Cruz has been speaking about ObamaCare since 2:41 pm on 24 September 2013.  He has promised to “speak until he can no longer speak,” and his speech has included reading “Green Eggs and Ham” to his children, excerpts from “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead”, and tweets and messages from Americans.

This is great stuff – at this point, over eighteen hours of expostulation about freedom, the proper role of government, the limits of the Executive Branch, and the flaws in ObamaCare.

The quiet hero in all this is Gov. Sarah Palin. Senator Ted Cruz almost didn’t win his primary; he gained momentum when the lady from Wasilla flew down to Texas to campaign for the man.  Cruz’s campaign took off; he cruised (Cruzed?) to primary victory; and then he won the general election.  Without the Barracuda, we wouldn’t be watching this. Thank you, Sarah.
