Sometimes you can spot a prick just by looking at him, and, like Ted Cruz, Alabama congressional candidate Dean Young looks like a prick. This Q & A with The Guardian confirms it.
Apart from the United States, which other country do you admire?
Young: I’m not a big world traveller, so I don’t know.
Who is your political hero?
Young: Judge Roy Moore. (Moore was famous as ‘The Ten Commandments’ judge)
Who is the current Treasury secretary?
Young: It was Paulson. Is it Tim Geithner now? (not since January)
Leaving the question of gay marriage aside, do you believe homosexual people can feel the same love for one another as straight people?
Young: When you start talking about that, I don’t even know … Homosexuality is wrong, and that is just the way it is. Always has been, always will be.
Where was Barack Obama born?
Young: That is what we call the $64,000 question! I have no idea! [When pushed for an answer:] Kenya.
Despite being outspent 10-to-1 while purposely lowering the idiocy bar, Young has a small lead over his GOP primary opponent. Let that be a lesson to those who underestimate Ted Cruz’s potential to win the Republican nomination for president in 2016.
The Tea Party is now “the man.” A very dumb man, typically.
