Ted Cruz suggests that Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson would make a good UN ambassador.

Courtesy of CNN:

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz made an unusual suggestion for U.N. ambassador at a rally on Friday: "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson. 

"How much would you pay to see the Russian ambassador's face when Phil says, 'What is wrong with you people?'" Cruz joked to an applauding crowd in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 

"You know there's a reason he terrifies the mainstream media. He says the things you're not supposed to say," Cruz said at Friday's rally. "He actually remembers who we are as Americans and just speaks it with a joy, not with an anger, not with a hatred, with a joy in who we are."

Yeah, I don't think that the media is "terrified" of Phil Robertson. They're just horrified by his insance ramblings.

Speaking of insane ramblings, here is part of his speech at the very same rally where Cruz suggested his ambassadorship.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

“The strength of this nation will not be this Constitution, but the laws of God that the Constitution is based on. You get rid of God, you get him out and keep him from being your anchor — when you start allowing men to determine what is right, what is wrong, what is good, what is evil. You let men do it and they do not vet it with through this book,” he thundered, “Our founding fathers warned us over and over again, what you will end up doing is saying, ‘Well, now I know it sounds like a violation of commandment number six, which says do not murder, but we’re just going to go ahead and tell these ladies — ladies in America — they can kill their children.” 

During the 13-minute speech he barely mentioned the candidate before leaving the crowd with his final words: “Vote godly.”

My question right now would be "Is there anybody sane still supporting these Republican front runners?"

    So is old faker Phil all right then with Cruz' big plan to bomb the Middle East to dust, to kill immigrants, and to let women die in childbirth rather than abort a fetus that is killing them? Funny how these folks are about one of the issues that is never mentioned in that holy book full of rape, murder, and blind ambition.

    Holy Shit! When did Charlie Manson grow a beard that long? And he's ascaireded that they're taking away statues, the ten commandos, bibles guns, and duck callers. Good Move, Cruz! Got a position for Sarah? The Duggars, that Davis yahoo and Franklin trenchcoat Graham.

      I saw this video on YT and I would daresay Charlie Manson isn't half as crazy as this loon. Granted, he committed some heinous crimes, but I think both Cruz and Robertson have Manson beaten in terms of a nutcase quotient.

    1. No. Cruz, and the Duckfuck are not true Christians. Cruz saying to "vote godly", is no different than Trump saying that if you don't vote for him, you "hate America". It's a marketing strategy, aimed at the really simpleminded, stupid people who can't think for themselves. Quite comical that stupid people actually fall for that bullshit.

    Has any considered the possibility that "cousin maloe" may actually be Bristol, Sarah or someone like that? It only takes seconds to post a pic to Insta so why would she know "hours ahead of time" about what would be posted? Whoever it is, their writing and misspellings seem very contrived, as well. I can see Bristol, etc getting a real kick out of punking IM readers with a scam like this.

  16. Phil talked up Cruz will good with the Iowa White Supremacists. I guess it worked.

    And I guess we now know that all the back scratching will result in. Ted thinks he'll be president and Phil thinks he'll become the U.N. ambassador.

    *THIS* is why we need an aggressive separation of church and state.

    Obama needs to get that 9th justice on board the the Supreme Court needs to rule on religion interfering with politics in this country. (And they can add campaign finance reform to their list too.)

    Nope, not a chance it's Bristol. She's to dumb to write entertaining comments like "Cousin Maloe." Her misspellings are not "contrived."
    She has dyslexia....a learning disability. My brother who was dyslexic had atrocious spelling (worse than cousin's) but he was a smart guy and so is cousin. As for it being Sarah, no way no how...cousin is to articulate...no word salad! Funny how all the trolls come out whenever she posts. I think she's legit and enjoy reading her comments, as well as getting a laugh at all the trolls that creep out of the woodworks like the cockroaches they are. I'm not calling

      A lot of people have dyslexia, and there are "degrees" of dyslexia. With proper therapies and a lot of work, people can and do compensate for it. It in no way measures a person's iq, so what difference does it make if a high school drop out doesn't have command of the language and is too lazy to do something about it? It's the least of her problems, believe me.

    If that POS ever became president and he appointed that scraggly piece of garbage to the UN, we'd be at war in a month - with the world! The very first speech he made would slam every single non-christian person in existence. And NOT politely!

    On the other hand, that may be a good thing. I mean, let's face it. The UN delegates would be able to justifiably slaughter his ass right there on the podium and we would be rid of another filthy, lying fool. (For those who can't tell, that was sarcasm!)

    The statement:
