Yet Another Reason to Vote Ted Cruz – One Of His Favorite Superheroes Is ‘Rorschach’ From Watchmen

I apologize to my regular readers, but I need to comic book geek out just a little bit. Apparently Ted Cruz named the Rorschach character from the ground-breaking comic series, “Watchmen” as one of his heroes.

Some liberal freaked out over it:

Now.. a little discussion is necessary here. Those of us who know Watchmen intimately know that the author Alan Moore is heavily distressed that so many Americans and others found the character likable – he was written as pretty much an unforgiving psychopath. But, he also has some salutary qualities, like the absolute allegiance to the truth as evidenced by his last words – “never compromise, not even in the face of armageddon.”

Sound familiar? I could totally see Ted Cruz quoting that on the Senate floor.

Or the White House.

Yes Rorschach was a psychopath. But he got things done, and he was OUR psychopath. Aren’t those the kind of qualities we want in the White House?

TED CRUZ 2016!!!!!

    Ted has my vote if he gets the nomination.

    I see Cruz as the superhero “Kick-Ass” with his loud sidekick “Trumpit”.

  • Johnny Blade

    Was Rorschach a psychopath? He never killed innocent ppl for the ‘greater good’, he was compassionate (remember him letting the cancer ridden ex-Moloch off the hook?). He valued truth, justice, honor, and valor. He was a good man who refused to do nothing in the face of evil.
    If Rorschach was a psychopath we need more of them in today’s society.

    That a liberal would try to make a caricature of the qualities that define manhood makes a perverse sort of sense.

    I didn’t think it was possible for me to like Ted any more than I already did. I was wrong…
