A Ted Seller!

With 21 hours to kill in his non-filibuster anti-Obamacare filibuster,  Sen. Ted Cruz resorted to quoting from Dr. Seuss's immortal "Green Eggs and Ham" (which sounds like a Texas recipe to beat a hangover).  This inspired a 1000 Twitter parodies--and, I now note, a surge of sales for the good doctor's book, riding it to #597 on the chart of Amazon bestsellers.  But Cruz seems more like all Cat in Hat, no cattle. And note this:  “The moral message of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ – to the extent that it has one – is completely at odds with what Cruz was trying to achieve,” says Seuss biographer Phil Nel, a professor at Kansas State University.   You know: try something first before you reject it.
