Thanks for reading and for responding. I stand by what I said. I am familiar with Sen. Cruz's background. Sen. Cruz is an idiot because he behaves like one, intellect and background having nothing to do with one’s behavior. On occasion, I behave like an idiot (I can prove this) but most of the time I do not, and further I am not a public figure, not one with any authority, so my idiotic behaviors have relatively little meaning in regard to my intellect and background (both of which I would match, in my fields, against Sen. Cruz’s).
I did not actually “call out” Cong. Ocasio-Cortez but mentioned her in the context of the conversation. Whatever “pandering” she might be accused of, it is nowhere near the level of potential hypocrisy that Sen. Cruz reaches (consider the resumé you delivered to me...) but accusing her of antisemitism is pure nonsense. Degrees and glorified positions in life do not count as qualifications, necessarily. I have both, so I know. And I know many without same before whom I am humbled.
Cruz is a skunk, no matter what accomplishments he has in his life. And as I say that I feel I have done a disservice to skunks.
