Ted Cruz Went To The Senate To Chew Bubblegum And Kick Ass. He's Out Of Bubblegum

The Senate Judiciary Committee sent an "assault weapons" ban and an expanded background check bills to the full Senate today. But first, Ted Cruz reminded Diane Feinstein that we have a Constitution and that you can't apply the standard that she does to say the First or Fourth Amendments.

She was not amused.

“I'm not a sixth grader,” she told the freshman Tea Party favorite. “I'm not a lawyer, but after 20 years I've been up close and personal to the Constitution. I have great respect for it … it's fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution. I appreciate it. Just know I've been here for a long time. I've passed on a number of bills. I've studied the Constitution myself. I am reasonably well educated, and I thank you for the lecture.”

Finally Feinstein admitted that her approach wouldn't apply to books. Democrats seem to think the Second Amendment is special or something and not in the good way.

Cruz isn't playing nice. Not only did he piss off Feinstein but also Durbin and Leahy. It's great to see a conservative not let liberals get away with their sloppy thinking. Call 'em out and make them defend their idiocy.

Via Irwin Rosen the video is below the fold. Watch and enjoy.
