It’s not that Senator Ted Cruz did a bad job responding to the Terrorism in Belgium this morning, but something about the tone really bugged me. He could have (should have) taken a moment here and there, between his long sighs, to express sympathy and fraternity with the Belgian people once or twice. But then that’s the problem with “true believers” isn’t it? There’s a latent narcissism in it. Every event in the world happens solely to confirm their righteous zeal. Taking a moment to express a human emotion never occurs to them.
