Ted Cruz Resigns as "Manchurian Candidate In Training": A Satire


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

Heidi looked quizzical as she left the room, holding her head, in search of the last tranquillizer in her pill case.  She also exited to place a call to her boutique doc for a drug refill and to call in sick once again at Goldman Sachs.  This exit, according to the spy (who dusted the bar, stereo and TV again and again, as no one noticed) gave the Senator an opportunity to vent something else to a stunned Putin, "If you are pissed, I am double pissed!  You know I think Michelle Bachmann is hot, and you met with her without including me."  For the record, Putin never met with Bachmann.  But the Senator, a master in passive aggressive manipulation, said this to throw the Russian Pres off base and end the call.  It worked.  Putin started to curse -- then hung up in mid-curse.  

At this point, the tranquillizer doing its job, Heidi reentered the room asking what Plan B was.   "You know it has always been my plan to be President. "But how can you be President?" Heidi asked:  "John McCain has said that you were on a fool's errand, and so many just plain hate you."

"Relax honey," Cruz told his wife.  "I'm right where I want to be -- on the road to destroy all of those who believe government owes something to people who don't have the where-with-all to take care of themselves!  I am a rock star to those who count. Everyone now knows my name and spells in right. News shows are fighting each other to give me even more exposure. Speaking opportunities have been everywhere, even to honor Ronald Reagan. All I have to do is keep my smooth talking going strong; keep my gloves on; especially when it comes to Chris Christie; and turn on the charm.  The best is yet to be."
