@mmfa "So vote Republican. We'll make sure you don't have a choice OR a job!"

Dealing with Rep. Pete “Mucker” King is like living with a rescue pit bull — it ain’t for amateurs, or philosopher-kings. TPM is happy to point out that Ted “Tailgunner” Cruz doesn’t seem to be up to the job:
In a day marked by the clash between House Republicans and Sen. Ted Cruz over defunding Obamacare, Rep. Pete King (R-NY) had another message for the Texas senator: Mind your own business.
“We as House Republicans should stop letting Ted Cruz set our agenda for us,” King said on CNN. “He should stay in the Senate, keep quiet. If he can deliver on this, fine. If he can’t, he should keep quiet from now on and we shouldn’t listen to him.”…
Remember, Pete “Not the Cantalope Guy” King is officially running for President in 2016, as a vanity project to raise his Q ratings. So if Cruz blows up the whole economy in his own quest for a bigger share of the GOP grift, it’s going to be a gross personal inconvenience to Peter King, which is the best and perhaps only way to get a Repub’s attention…
