Sen. Dianne Feinstein said she needed some time to cool off today after Sen. Ted Cruz questioned the constitutionality of her ongoing gun grabbing efforts, but the freshman senator from Texas was just getting warmed up. Cruz stopped by BlogBash at CPAC to energize the “gathering of right-of-center bloggers and online opinion leaders” and offer a toast to the late Andrew Breitbart.

“You represent power and you represent democracy,” Cruz told the gathering, adding, “You scare the hell out of Washington.”

Scaring the hell out of Washington? Cruz and the bloggers have a lot in common.
