Ted Cruz and Glenn Beck huddled to inform their audience of the evil that these two women are. Of course, Beck didn't miss an opportunity to take aim at Cass Sunstein in the process.
June 8, 2013

Ted Cruz is a despot wannabe. If he could, he would take authoritarian control of our minds and turn us all into wingerbots who spend our days hating and fearing anyone different from us. He's also not a fan of women.

It's rich to hear him go on Glenn Beck's show in order to slam Susan Rice and Samantha Power as weak-kneed idiots who 'grovel before tyrants.'

Beck called Power, whom he referred to as “Powers,” as an “extraordinarily dangerous person” and accused her husband Cass Sunstein, who formerly led the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, of directing the IRS to target conservatives.

Cruz called Power “extreme” and “far outside of the mainstream,” and said that she and other “left-wing academics” appointed by Obama consistently “grovel before tyrants like Castro in Cuba and North Korea.”

Ah, yes, the Cass Sunstein connection. We all know Glenn Beck yearns to smear Cass Sunstein with all manner of ridiculous conspiracy theories, which don't have to have any basis in fact to keep him going. Never mind the resulting death threats aimed at Sunstein, either. Who are the dictators again?

This is the new McCarthyism, begun by Glenn Beck in the media and carried through by Ted Cruz in the Senate. I guess neither of them bother with actual history books.
