The Unified Ted Cruz Blame Theory Goes Up in Flames
It is already setting in as received wisdom among liberals both within the Republican party and without that Ted Cruz will be made to shoulder the blame for the nominations the Democrats rammed through the Senate this week.

He’ll say he had no choice, but we know better.
