Cruz: 'Badge of Honor' to Be Called 'Wacko Bird'

Shortly after Senator Rand Paul finished his epic filibuster of Obama’s CIA nominee, John Brennan, Senator John McCain came out swinging at his junior Republican colleagues in U.S. Senate, calling Paul and Senator Ted Cruz “Wacko Birds.”

“But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.”-Sen. John McCain

This past weekend in Miami, Florida, we caught up to one of the elusive and endangered Senate “Wacko Birds” Senator Ted Cruz, and asked  him what his thoughts were about being called such a term.

Cruz looked at me and the Miami Herald’s Marc Caputo, chuckled, and responded, “I take that as a badge of honor.”

Earlier in the week, Senator Paul responded to McCain’s not-so-senatorial use of  words by saying ,”I treat Sen. McCain with respect. I don’t think I always get the same in return.”
