    The resemblance is beyond uncanny. In more ways than one.

      They also resemble each other in being correct.  The Soviet Union did have spies in the US government and Obamacare is a charlie foxtrot.

      Eerily creepy in both resemblance and ideology.

        Psychopath serial killers have a certain look to their eyes (see slate of recent mass shooters -- Aurora, CT, Gabby Giffords, etc.).
        Sociopath idealogues also have a certain look to their eyes.
        This is it.
        Power and attention... crave and demand that.

            Why would someone seeking power run for President? You're only in for less than a decade, max, and you can't initiate anything.

            The real powermongers sign up for positions in the Senate or Congress. You can strongarm the President to do whatever you want, you have no limits on how long you can hold your position, and if the President wants to deny your motion, you can just convince your friends to counterattack with a majority vote.

              Was Joe McCarthy part of a party majority in the Senate.  Is Ted Cruz.  One of One Hundred or One of One - your interpretation of the power ratio here is interesting.

                Ted Cruz does not consider himself "one of 100." He pretty much thinks he is not only Harry Reid but John Boehner as well.
                It's all "look at Meeeee, look at meeeee!!"
                Posturing for his OWN political gain.

                We saw how far it got Darrelly Issa -- who is now trying to get back in the spotlight again today.

                  You mean as legendary Democrat Filibuster-er Robert Byrd.  It is the right of Senators to hold the floor, Cruz' actions are not new.  If one bothers to read his remarks most were germane to the issue at hand.  Ascribing his filibuster to mere ego is ironic given the many hours of vapid commentary offered by the President on every event from the vital Mariah Carey-Nikki Manaj feud to his knee jerk response to Skip Gates appropriate arrest.

                  As for Harry Reed, just remember, his job is not to represent the people of Nevada.

                    I wasn't even talking about the faux filibuster.
                    I was talking about everything else Cruz does.

        If by ideology you mean anti-communist, that seems to be a reasonable ideology for every American.  Or do you mean the ideology that so endeared him to Robert Kennedy that he asked McCarthy to be Godfather to his children?  I suppose something specific would be useful.  It seem lefties seem to hate McCarthy and Cruz for irrational reasons, no surprise there.
