Ted Cruz appeared on “Fox and Friends” on April 1, 2014 and sat for an interview that primarily concerned Obamacare. However, it being April Fool’s Day, the junior senator from Texas announced that he had gotten a tattoo of Winston Churchill on his right arm. It was a temporary tattoo, of course, but the point was made.
Cruz was riffing off of a recent incident in Beverly Hills where posters of Cruz, shirtless, tattooed, and with a cigarette dangling from his mouth appeared. As of this writing no one has taken credit for the posters.
“Paul’s spent the past year insisting that the party needs to do more to reach out to young voters, once saying, ‘We need to have people with ties and without ties, with tattoos and without tattoos.’ Now watch the clip. Consider this ante upped.
“I’d say the odds are 50/50 that, come next year, some unnamed Cruz supporter will tell a major media outlet that Rand has one on his right bicep of Neville Chamberlain. Incidentally, did anyone ever claim responsibility for that Cruz poster in L.A. that made the rounds online a few weeks ago? As funny as it was, it was crudely true to his political brand: He’s the one guy in the prospective presidential field who won’t play by the establishment’s rules, who’s going to do things his way no matter how much contempt is tossed at him. No wonder he’s thinking about making the Winston tat permanent.”
One can just imagine Rand Paul being asked to prove that he doesn’t have Chamberlain inked on some part of his body. He would be well advised to get his own ink, say an image of Reagan.
