Ted Cruz Resigns as "Manchurian Candidate In Training":  A Satire
Use of satire to highlight dangerous, destructive communication in DC among members of Congress

Have you heard?  An American spy working in the Texas home of Senator Ted Cruz  and and his wife, Goldman Sachs's Heidi Nelson Cruz, has passed on a hot off the press secret e-mail written from her "boss" to Russian President, Vladimir Putin.  ("I cannot say who placed me," the spy said in her recent interview.  "Just let's say that those who did knew a rat when they smelled one.")  In his e-mail to Putin Cruz resigns from his position of Manchurian Candidate, In Training.

"Hell," Cruz wrote, "all of the vodka and caviar in Russia will not keep me!"  The house spy also reported that as the Senator wrote the email, his wife was yelling for him to remember that Putin was KGB trained:  "He throws darts at tigers and polar bears; he left his wife after beating her; he took his black lab, Koni, to a first meeting with Angela Merkel to scare her.  Do not piss him off!" warned Heidi.

"So what.  Putin has served his purpose.  You've always known I will do whatever is necessary to accomplish my goals.  Everything is going according to plan." Cruz yelled back, pushing the Send button as his volume grew, "I have had it.  If shutting down the government, the fiscal stand off, and out assault on Obamacare didn't bring the liberals and Commies down, there are other ways"  Heidi reminded hubby that Putin was a Commie also.  "Yeah, but he promised me ultimate power here to change things in the way he is changing them in Russia, and he has not delivered." 

According to the spy-in residence in the Cruz home, at the end of this exchange, the Senator's mobile rang.  It was Putin, who joined the Texas screamers with guilt trips galore.  President Putin reminded Senator Cruz of meeting and signing him up for the MCT position (their code name) when Cruz still was at Princeton.  "You hated the food at your Eating Club," Putin reminded Cruz, "I introduced you to single malt scotch, which you know I drink any chance I can.  And when you and Heidi got married, I supplied the caviar."  And Putin continued, furiously, "Who do you think got Professor Alan Dershowitz to publicly call you "off the charts brilliant?"  I'm still paying him off with caviar!

Calming himself, Senator Cruz told Putin that he was fighting laryngitis from all of his interviews, and that Heidi had migraines from all of the bulbs popping in her face.  "Look, our MCT togetherness has fallen flat.  It is kaput! it's time for me to turn now to my own Plan B."
