Ted Cruz Grills Neil Gorsuch on The Ultimate Question

Kind of amusing, in a geeky way. The left is freaking out because this is obviously an effort to "humanize" Gorsuch and make him "relatable." That, they believe, is a dishonest strategy, because it takes away from their own strategy of dehumanizing Gorsuch and making him unrelatable.

I mean, when Al Franken was attempting to prove Gorsuch's deep partisanship based on his knocking on doors in support of his mother's bid for local minor office when Gorsuch was 8 years old, that was plainly a line of questioning just based on facts and evidence.

So much so that Gorsuch rolled his eyes at the unfunny former TV monkeyclown.

But Cruz's attempt to distract from Gorsuch's campaigning-for-mom scandal was just out of bounds, wasn't it?:



Cruz's mind seems to be running towards the cosmological lately.

President Trump signed a bipartisan bill Tuesday that funds NASA programs and maps out a plan to send a manned mission to Mars.

The NASA Transition Authorization Act, which was co-authored by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., distributes $19.5 billion for the space agency’s 2018 fiscal year (beginning Oct. 1). The bill also calls for NASA to draft a plan for a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s. The bill closely aligns with Trump’s $19.1 billion budget proposal for the agency.

Money will be delegated for deep space exploration, refining the International Space Station, commercial partnerships, and planning for the mission to Mars. The bill also "authorizes a space technology program" the White House said in a statement.

"It is the first time in seven years we've had a NASA authorization bill," Sen. Cruz said, joking with President Trump that he could now "send Congress to space."

"We could. What a great idea that could be," Trump responded.

I'm sure CNN's Jake Tapper will be hyperventilating about Trump "threatening" members of Congress with being space-keelhauled.
