Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s name was made for hashtag games (Chuck Hagel being hit by a #CruzMissile was a favorite), so we’re doubly happy he’s on our side. The Left has progressively ramped up its campaign against Cruz, calling him Joe McCarthy 2.0, a Latino in name only, and a schoolyard bully — a sure sign the “very junior” senator is doing something right.
We doubt that the outspoken Cruz is quaking in his cowboy boots over tonight’s “Twitter bombing” campaign, in which opponents will tweet the hashtag #YouCruzYouLose from 5:30 to 7 p.m. (Cher will likely tweet as usual.) RedState has put together its own counter attack in the form of #CruzToVictory. In any case, the Cruz name should be trending this evening, which is a victory in itself. Fans of the Twitter-savvy senator are having a difficult time not starting early, though.

We’re a half hour into the Left’s Twitter war on Ted Cruz, but they don’t seem to be making much headway.

Sen. Cruz has taken notice.

Cruz’s army of wackobirds might be setting up the senator for a run at president of the world.
