Tea Party crank Steve Stockman is running against Sen. John Cornyn, because he’s Harry Reid’s Republican.

IT IS no joke, Harry Reid’s aide did indeed give Sen. John Cornyn a “bear hug.” One can only wonder what Cornyn’s new Tea Party opponent will make of that.

Steve Stockman, the Sharron Angle of 2014, this time out of Texas, not Nevada, has announced a challenge to Sen. John Cornyn.

I’ll keep the popcorn fresh and hot, who’s bringing the wine? We’re going to need a lot of it.

From Steve Stockman:

Dear patriot, You are in a foxhole fighting to save our constitutional Republic”¦ “¦and the last thing you need is a Republican bayonet in your back. But that’s what liberal John Cornyn has been doing to you every day. And we have less than 90 days to stop him. I’m conservative Congressman Steve Stockman, and I am running for United States Senate against liberal John Cornyn. I am honored to be called the most fearless conservative in Congress, and proud of my perfect 100% lifetime conservative rating. I am leading the fight for our values. But John Cornyn wakes up every morning and works to make the Senate a more liberal place. Liberal John Cornyn betrayed Ted Cruz by abandoning Republicans during the Obamacare filibuster. Liberal John Cornyn betrayed Ted Cruz, and you, by voting to fund Obamacare. But liberal John Cornyn is now doing what he always does, spending four years voting like a Democrat, then spending the two years before an election pretending to be Republican. And if we let John Cornyn back in the Senate he will go right back to betraying Republicans, and with a vengeance. Well, I’m sick and tired of being bayoneted in the back by someone in my own foxhole. Texas is a conservative state. Texas needs a conservative senator.

My big sister lives in Texas. She detests these Republican cranks. In fact, she’s quit giving money to the GOP because of them. We commiserate often about the state of the Republican Party. I can’t wait to talk to her about Steve Stockman when we talk over the holidays.

Republicans refuse to learn.
