Shortly before noon today, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) concluded his nearly 22 hour lecture on the floor of the Senate. Cruz did not speak for the entire time, however, he had help from his partner in crime Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) who, as you may recall, is the man who drafted the bill to shut the government down over Obamacare and began seeking allies for his Coalition of the Willing.
Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) also made surprise appearances during the 22 hour fundraising drive, because no 2016 hopeful should be left behind.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was less than impressed by Cruz.
With all due respect to Sen. Cruz, I’m not sure we learned anything new. It’s been interesting, but it’s also been a big waste of time.

Ted Cruz could have spoken for another hour, but he chose to bow out early.
Why? It may be because he’s scheduled to appear on the Rush Limbaugh show.
