How About That? The Times Speaks Well of Ted Cruz.
Ask yourself if you ever expected to see this headline in the New York Times about a Republican: Senate Candidate in Texas Is Known as an Intellectual Force
That's Jim Geraghty's introduction into this story about conservative Ted Cruz by, yes, the New York Times.
(Update: By the time, I got around to reading the article, the Times had changed the headline. Maybe they had read Geraghty and realized they have been too positive to a Republican after all. Anyway, the new headline, though still somewhat positive, did add a snide reference to the Tea Party -- "A Republican Voice With Tea Party Mantle and Intellectual Heft.")
But do read the piece. It's informative and certainly worthwhile.
