Update from a reader:
C’mon. A nervous chuckle is not “a rare moment of journalism.” Demonstrating that Cruz traffics in lies, distortions and a weird alternate reality would be journalism. A chuckle – or even an actual laugh – doesn’t prove anything except Schieffer’s discomfort.
Schieffer should have had the guts to simply call out Cruz’s absurd claim by asking, “How did Obama cause the shutdown?” Then we’d have at least a glimpse of Cruz’s specious logic and could begin to understand his delusional mind.
