HBO, Beyond the Pale
HBO has done some good things, like Rome and Game of Thrones. But this is one of the most appalling things I have seen in a long time. There is an HBO program called “True Blood” that apparently is about vampires–way to be cutting edge, right? In its most recent episode, it featured a Ted Cruz fundraiser at the George W. Bush presidential library. In the clip below, you can see the characters discussing the fact that only “assholes” are going to the Ted Cruz event, while a woman, having dressed for the event, describes herself as a “Republicunt.” The clip concludes with a vampire saying that of all the horrible things he has seen in the last 100 years, the Ted Cruz fundraiser is the worst.....
The show’s producers invited Sarah Palin to appear in the episode, apparently for additional “Republicunt” titillation. She declined. These people are beneath beneath contempt.Look, Ted Cruz is a brazen demagogue who gets a kick out fucking with Tea Partiers. In other words, basically he's a douchebag. But he has to know this by now, so I don't think an HBO show will hurt his feelings.
So get over it. Its not like HBO had Ted Cruz goosestepping it up. You have to go to Powerline Blog for that.
