Man in Black: there’s something I ought to tell you.
Inigo Montoya: Tell me.
Man in Black: I’m not left-handed either.
The Princess Bride 1987
Judge Roy Bean: [Bean apologizes to the marshals’ wives] I understand you have taken exception to my calling you whores. I’m sorry. I apologize. I ask you to note that I did not call you callous-ass strumpets, fornicatresses, or low-born gutter sluts. But I did say “whores.” No escaping that. And for that slip of the tongue, I apologize.
The Life & Times of Judge Roy Bean 1972
There have been those on TV and in Social Media who have been demanding an apology from Ted Cruz for his “New York Values” remark. Some are New Yorkers and others are supporters of other Candidates like Marco Rubio who, desperate to distract from their support for such things as the gang of eight amnesty, need something to bring Senator Cruz down.
So when an NBC reporter from the media that so loves him asked if he was going to apologize they should all be delighted that he said this

This instantly brought to mind this classic apology from Monty Python’s Flying Circus
At the Trailblazers blog from the Dallas Morning News while not using the word explains why they should be careful what they wish for
This wasn’t the apology Trump and others demanded. But it did neatly lump Cruz’s main rival for the GOP nomination with the leading Democratic candidate, and the governor and mayor of a state and city Cruz depicts as a font of social and cultural corruption
Donald Trump won the sound bite but not only has Ted Cruz remarks brought up every single time NY has dissed conservatives in the past now the Senator from Texas has a brand new circa 2015 set of video clips of conservative hating ultra liberals in politics, media and culture who have a history of degrading and dehumanizing the GOP base standing in solidarity with Donald Trump less than 30 days before the start of the GOP primary season. It’s a superpac ad just waiting to happen. It’s Bunker Hill with Trump and the MSM in the role of the British.
Ted Cruz has just permanently Trolled Donald Trump and any member of the GOP who is foolish enough to join in the attack, the question is will the Trump team recognize what’s just been done to themselves or if he will continue to defend NY Values in rallies across the nation and do Senator Cruz’s job for him.
The man in black has just switched hands.
Update: I think it’s incumbent on every GOP candidate to be asked if they support NY Values don’t you?
Update 2: Talk about the big lie
I don’t know many “anti-Semites” who would fight the president on Jewish issues even when Jewish members of Congress (Democrats) were silent. I don’t know many anti-Semites would support Jews and Israel to a hostile audience. Ted Cruz was tougher on Chuck Hagel’s and his anti-Israel statements, than Chuck Schumer during Hagel’s confirmation hearing.
Ted Cruz is not now, nor has he ever been and anti-Semite and the very suggestion floating around the internet makes this proud Jew disgusted.
Thus did those seeking mercy and help, those seeing to highlight their plight chase away their highest profile ally in the US government.
To those who suggest Ted Cruz is anti-Israel I say: May I never be so desperate for an advantage for a candidate I favor to lie so brazenly
