Praise to thee our Alma Mater

Senator Ted Cruz, self-refuting meritocrat:

The elite academic circles that Cruz was now traveling in began to rub off. As a law student at Harvard, he refused to study with anyone who hadn’t been an undergrad at Harvard, Princeton, or Yale. Says Damon Watson, one of Cruz’s law-school roommates: “He said he didn’t want anybody from ‘minor Ivies’ like Penn or Brown.”

Unless, of course, no one outside of Harvard, Princeton, or Yale has ever accomplished anything, ever. Then it makes perfect sense.

I’m loving this guy, he is going around the campaign trail telling folks that it wasn’t so bad for the Republicans last time they shut down the government, let’s hope the madteapartiers agree with him and find themselves further at odds with the whacko Paul-libertarains and the plutocrat’s puppets!
