It should be said, for full disclosure, that I identify as a republican when it comes to politics. This revelation may come as a shock to many, but it's the truth. I have been actively involved with the local GOP party for over 10 years and agree with many of the policies on the Republican party platform.

That being said, being a Republican is challenging. Even more so during the last four years. Elected officials who are disliked by members within their party are numerous in the bodies which make up our representation locally, statewide, and nationally.

Senator Ted Cruz is one of those politicians who garner a "love him or hate him" attitude from Texans. I happen to be one who is tired of seeing Ted Cruz and hearing his voice. It is what it is. No judgment if you love him; many of my most beloved friends think he's the bee's knees.

No matter how I feel about Senator Cruz and his politics, he sure does step in it often enough to rely on him to be at least entertaining during election season. This year is no exception.

Senator Cruz decided to chime in on a Twitter spat between actor Ron Perlman (Hellboy himself), and a Florida congressman. The fact that Senator Cruz wasn't originally involved in the spat and injected himself into it makes this story all the more moronic.

What kind of a guy volunteers his buddy to fight for him? I think we all know that answer. Too bad Sen. Cruz can't allow someone else to speak for him, too. Maybe I would be impressed by his speaker. Who knows?

The rest of what becomes the spat between Perlman and Cruz is also as funny as the senator's entry tweet.

For now, all we know is that Senator Cruz will continue to provide a handful of entertaining bits to get us through the election cycle.
