NYTimes columnist is worried about 'the rise of Ted Cruz-ism

The New York Times' David Brooks is terrified:

“What’s going on in the House, and a bit in the Senate, too, is what you might call the rise of Ted Cruz-ism,” Brooks announced Sunday on PBS' News Hour. “And Ted Cruz, the senator from Canada through Texas, is basically not a legislator in the normal sense, doesn’t have an idea that he’s going to Congress to create coalitions, make alliances, and he is going to pass a lot of legislation. He’s going in more as a media-protest person. And a lot of the House Republicans are in the same mode. They’re not normal members of Congress. They’re not legislators. They want to stop things. And so they’re just being — they just want to obstruct.”

I know Brooks means this as a bad thing, but I'm pretty sure most Americans would think of a politician who's "not normal" as a good thing...
