Do you remember he Hagel hearings? I do. I remember When Ted Cruz did this

During Hagel’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, I overheard multiple groans from other journalists covering the event whenever Cruz began a pointed line of questioning. On Twitter, they noted their exasperation in more colorful ways.
This is bottom of the barrel stuff from Ted Cruz: playing Al Jazeera random caller asking Hagel a question.

And Chris Matthews called him the “Next Joe McCarthy”
this is no surprise, after all Hagel was the goto Republican for the press for years.
That what makes this headline at Politico so much fun:
I can’t wait to hear the outraged critiques from Chris Matthews, Chuck Todd and the Morning Joe table expressing their disgust with this extremist president who dared to dump Chuck Hagel
