Apparently since Ted Cruz is a Republican he’s not allowed to be a fan of science fiction or have a sense of humor.

How dare he be clever AND conservative, right?!

How many of you rolled your eyes so far back in your head you could see behind you when you read this tweet?

Seriously.

The editor of this article happens to be a YUGE Douglas Adams fan AND a YUGE Ted Cruz fan; the fact the senator knew enough about the book to use it during the Gorsuch hearings makes him extra awesome.

And Gizmodo whining about it makes them extra pathetic.

Word.

They’re not the brightest group.

We kinda sorta LOVE this tweet best of all … especially since Gizmodo whining about Cruz this was was clearly a bad move.
