Oh, C'mon. That was funny. And it was picked up by Huff, Salon, even Forbes.

I believe a silly question deserves a silly response. I don't know who Is financing Cruz. Obviously people who love the underdog.

Yes I do. And he gets nothing more than an eye roll from me. But a silly partisan response gets the same eye roll from me. Both equally pathetic. #antipartisan

I didn't disagree with you calling it the silly partisan nonsense that it is. I just find it funny that all of a sudden you are above silly partisan nonsense. Carry on.

JC, if you wanted to setup martial law in the least disruptive and positive way possible, how would you do it? . that said I think Texas is a little paranoid. . even if Obama said he hated Texans .

H2O,,Set up martial law to what end? The destruction of the economy? Just to see if the entire nation would riot in the streets? Maybe to assure the demise of one's own political party? What the hell would be the advantage of martial law?

That doesn't get page clicks. Or anyone else to pay attention to the message, for that matter. Ridicule and satire gets attention. (i.e. the Onion)

What you are asking for is nothing more than a basic press release. I'm just saying that very few people read those. When was the last time you read one on a major topic?

Serious inquiries deserve a serious response. Advancing conspiracy theories as an official inquiry deserves mocking and ridicule. Even if he is just advancing the concern of a few vocal constituents - he's giving

The executive AND some of the legislative have seriously responded to these inquiries. You may have seen the videos of the town hall meetings.

Let me rephrase. The government will give him a response to his inquiry. I agree with you on that point. The press will mock and ridicule him, which it should.
