This is rich? This is chuptzpah? This is "mental"?

It's all of the above.

Ted Cruz, the man who will tell a different story to different audiences without the slightest decreasing of his furrowed brows, has just signed an amicus brief with 42 other GOP senators challenging Obama's November 2014 executive amnesty.

That would be the same executive amnesty that Houston global immigration superlawyer Charles C. Foster publicly supports. And that would be the same Charles C. Foster, profiled here, with whom Ted Cruz worked to craft Candidate Bush 43's immigration program in 2000; and whom Cruz recently called up to invite onto his presidential campaign finance committee as a fundraiser. Foster obliged, bringing the balance of the ex-Bush finance committee with him to Team Cruz.

This campaign seemingly of cross purposes is worth a serious double take. It's as if a candidate was championing Israel while a Hamas supporter was raising money for him; or passing himself off as an immigration patriot while some open-to-no-borders enthusiast was bundling bucks for the cause.

Oh, wait -- that's exactly what Cruz and Foster are doing.
