Ted Cruz, trying to lock up the yahoo vote:
Leaving no political stone unturned, newly-declared presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) had a very particular answer on Tuesday when asked about his taste in music.
“You know, music is interesting,” he said on CBS “This Morning.” “I grew up listening to classic rock, and I’ll tell you sort of an odd story.”
“My music taste changed on 9/11,” he said, followed by a pause.
“I actually intellectually find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded,” the senator went on. “And country music, collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me.”
“I had an emotional reaction that said, ‘these are my people.’ So ever since 2001 I listen to country music,” he concluded.
God damn, that’s some impressive pandering. We have Scott Walker mentioning Reagan every five minutes and now this guy with his faux populism.
