True Blood, a television show about Anna Paquin and her husband, has offended former Canadian and current Texas Senator Ted Cruz. This past Sunday's episode, "Lost Cause," depicted a fictional fundraiser held in Cruz's honor at the (real) George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas. In keeping with the show's seven seasons of thinly-veiled invectives leveled against conservatives, the episode did not speak favorably of Cruz or his fellow Republicans.
Cruz took to his Facebook page today, where he was critical of the show, calling it "misogynist" (maybe!) and "profanity-ridden" (duh):
Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO's True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a "Ted Cruz fundraiser."
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....
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
