QotD, Ted Cruz Can Do Math In His Head Too, Ye Media Elitist Snobs edition.

Byron York, on Ted Cruz [Link fixed: thanks to jbird in comments]:

Cruz has gotten a huge amount of coverage for his strong performances at hearings involving Chuck Hagel, guns and immigration. For whatever reason, some in the press have been amazed that a Princeton- and Harvard-educated lawyer, former solicitor general of Texas and winner of multiple cases before the U.S. Supreme Court would be good in a hearing room. He is.

You’d think that both Byron and I would have gotten used to the incredibly provincial mindset that dominates journalism in the Imperial Capital; and I think that normally we have.  But every so often they still unfavorably surprise us.

    Liberals always expect minorities to be incompetent. . . because they are racists.

    Journolisters always expect politicians to be stupid .. because let’s face it, the Dems keep electing *morons*.

    Hence their desire to destroy him

    BTW, the story you link to is about MD’s own Andy Harris, not Ted Cruz.

      Thanks. I swear to God, sometimes I wonder if there’s a glitch in Firefox that mucks up cut-and-paste. Hard to tell, since it could just as easily be me.

        Switch to some other browser (Flock, Chrome, Opera) for a week and .. if you still have the problem, then it’s clearly universal to web browsers.

        It’s ok, I enjoyed the Andy Harris story as well, living in MD as I do.
