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.

Another agrees:

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.
