Senator Ted Cruz is Sinking His Teeth into HBO’s True Blood
One congressman may be adding the job of television critic to his resume.
Senator Ted Cruz is using some biting words on Facebook to show his lack of support for HBO’s “True Blood,” which mentioned the Texas Republican during an episode which showed GOP party members murdered at the Bush Library during a “Ted Cruz fundraiser.”
“True Blood” is in its seventh and final season. It has millions of fans around the world and has both been inspired by and served as inspiration for true vampire fans everywhere. It is safe to say that the congressman is not among them.
Cruz, often billed as the first Cuban-American to hold the senate position in Texas, was actually born in Canada. He may be particularly sensitive to the scene of the show’s murders, since he worked as the domestic policy adviser to the presidential campaign of George W. Bush in 1999.
About the episode Cruz took to Facebook to say, “Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends….”
The post, linked on his Twitter page, was prefaced by the following:
Then again, I guess I never had a chance w/ the vampire vote since the dead tend to vote overwhelmingly for Dems: https://t.co/U6uCqsRpuS

There is no word yet on whether those murdered during the episode where later inspired to change their political affiliations once they entered the world of the undead.
