Cruz: DC coverage "like reading the Hollywood gossip pages"

The Senate talkathon over defunding Obamacare is on, led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and he has some thoughts about himself.

He cited "more than a few attacks from our friends on the Democratic side of the aisle and also from our friends on the Republcian side of the aisle.

"I told my wife I now pick up the newspapers each day to learn just what a scoundrel I am and just what attack will have come," he said, "some on the record and some, the ones that often even better are the anonymous ones."

Don't make this a battle of senator versus senator, Cruz urged. "It's like reading the Hollywood gossip pages. That's how this issue is covered," he said.
