Referring to Ted Cruz as  someone who makes his “head explode,” Steve LaTourette, a Republican who resigned Congress because of increasing Tea Party obstinacy, told MSNBC”s Lawrence O’Donnell (The Last Word) that Ted Cruz’s behavior was “reprehensible” and “irresponsible,” and that he wished that Cruz would “leave the party.”  LaTourette formerly represented Ohio’s 14th District (in the northeast corner of the state along Lake Erie) as a Republican.  He resigned in 2012 citing partisan extremists who browbeat others to the point of gridlock.
