Yet Another Reason to Vote Ted Cruz – One Of His Favorite Superheroes Is ‘Rorschach’ From Watchmen
I apologize to my regular readers, but I need to comic book geek out just a little bit. Apparently Ted Cruz named the Rorschach character from the ground-breaking comic series, “Watchmen” as one of his heroes.
Some liberal freaked out over it:
Oh my Ted Cruz. Oh my. (#5): pic.twitter.com/9ef7ThgsXr

Now.. a little discussion is necessary here. Those of us who know Watchmen intimately know that the author Alan Moore is heavily distressed that so many Americans and others found the character likable – he was written as pretty much an unforgiving psychopath. But, he also has some salutary qualities, like the absolute allegiance to the truth as evidenced by his last words – “never compromise, not even in the face of armageddon.”
Sound familiar? I could totally see Ted Cruz quoting that on the Senate floor.
Or the White House.
Yes Rorschach was a psychopath. But he got things done, and he was OUR psychopath. Aren’t those the kind of qualities we want in the White House?
TED CRUZ 2016!!!!!
