Calamity Cruz wakes up to polling reality

Well, just when Raffy Cruz's campaign was trying to propagate thos bogus poll numbers cranked out by Daron Shaw over at UT (it was an opt-in internet poll, which are the "polls" that destroyed the reputation of the Zogby poll), low and behold, the Dewhurst campaign comes out with REAL poll numbers.  And of course they show Dewhurst smokin' the field with right at 50% of the vote.

And Raffy Cruz?  Sittin' right at 6% of the vote (which is what most genuine surveys show him at) in THIRD place.

Yup Cruz is all blue smoke, mirrors and magazine covers.  Here's the link where you can read it yourself:

And in honor of hapless Raffy, he's our new Calamity Jane.  he's always been in love with himself, now his "secret love's not secret anymore."

New Poll Out - Cruz continues to be crushed.

So despite all the national bru-ha-ha that Cruz has stirred up, all the speeches made in Washington, DC andd the Facebook ads, Cruz is still pulling only 10% of the vote in the latest internet poll that those yahoos over at UT ran.

I know, internet polls were probably invented at the clown college in Sarasota, Florida.  But they are often useful predictors of what is to come, what expectations really are.

"Please email in your poll answers"
So at this point the wannabees and the know-it-alls think that Cruz is a sure loser - getting only 1 in ten votes.  That's a long, long, long way from 51%.

Still, it is probably more accurate than the BS poll the Ron Paul nerd was spreading around the week before last.  Numbers like that sure won't get you a one on one debate with the Lite Guv.

Ted Cruz is Douglas, David Dewhurst is Lincoln.

Well now, Raffy Cruz wants to replay the Lincoln-Douglas debates between himself and the Lt. Governor.  For the moment, let's set aside the fact that Cruz' arrogance seems to know no boundaries, since there are two other serious candidates in the race and according to one recent poll, Raffy trails both Lizzy "Aimless" Jones and Tom "the Acorn" Leppert in the four way race.

Since Cruz was born in Canada, he may not be up on his American history; you know, the same way he was not up on his father's activities in Cuba pre-1960.  But some of this might make sense:

Lincoln & Dewhurst? I mean they are both tall, lanky fellows who come from very humble beginnings.  Both are thoughtful and enjoy the big picture.  Both men understand war - Lincoln was commander in chief and Dewhurst is a Veteran.  Lincoln understood that intelligence was the key to defeating the south and Dewhurst?  Hey, he's ex-CIA baby!

Now consider the OTHER comparable...Raffy Cruz & Stephen Douglas:

Douglas was known for his  "his hard-hitting oratorical style" and was considered a dandy dresser and was known for his vanity and arrogance. 

How funny, so is Cruz!  Could Raffy Cruz have been Stephen Douglas in a past life?  Could be, could be...

A coupla things to remember:  Douglas's views and actions (i.e. the Kansas-Nebraska Act) helped lead to the Civil War.  And Douglas died at aged 48, Cruz is what, 41?  Hmmm.....

Cuban hot wind (with a cold canadian blast) vs. substance.   Texas doesn't need a circus like show to know they'll pick substance every time.
