“Ted Cruz is smart. He has always been able to talk down to people. He is now in the Senate. People are as smart as he is. He can’t talk down to anyone anymore. But he has still not accepted that in his own head. He still thinks he’s smarter than everybody else. He might be able to work a calculus problem better than I can. But he can’t legislate better than I can.”
I’m a terrible person for loving the gloating phase of this whole thing as much as I do. But goddamn, it’s been a long time since we had a win.

I simply do not understand people who want to feel like the smartest person in the room.
and/or- suck it, asshole.
reminds me of what someone said about gingrich: “if newt gingrich is the smartest guy in the room, leave the room.”
Hobbes, right? Why would anyone want to constantly feel like they were in a room full of idiots?
Dang, it is nice to win, isn’t it? And it was accomplished by standing firm and refusing to give away the store. Who knew? It looks like the approval numbers are up for Democrats among the people who voted to put them in office. Astonishing!
Democrats don’t have to be bullies about it, but a multi-front agenda can yield some pretty good results. Stand firm, advocate publicly (that whole bully pulpit thing), work the refs in the media, and buck up the nervous nellies in your caucus. Maybe now is a good time to plot out some actual advancements and accomplishments, rather than just re-fighting the victories of yesterday?
I think maybe Cruz and a number of other politicians suffer from the Dunning Kruger effect.
