Ted Cruz: The 9/11 Attacks Made Me Realize I Could Pander to Wingnuts by Listening to Country Music
Bringing new meaning to the term “pandering,” here’s Ted Cruz explaining that he “didn’t like how rock music responded” to the 9/11 attacks, so he switched to country.
As if “rock music” is some monolithic thing that all “responds” the same way. But seriously, Cruz is making a blindingly obvious play for the Republican base here, and of course, the host of CBS This Morning, Gayle King, nods right along as if it’s just hunky dory with her. Gross.
