Did you know Cory Booker is Spartacus? Because he really wants you to know he’s Spartacus.
The only thing worse than pulling a poorly planned and horribly executed political stunt is doubling down on your failure when everyone knows you’ve failed. Sen. Cory Booker should know.
Thursday, Sen. Booker claimed he was intentionally breaking Senate Committee rules by improperly releasing confidential documents, leading to thorough, justified, and humiliating smackdown by Sen. John Cornyn.
Later, it was revealed the documents Booker released had already been cleared, that Booker knew they’d been cleared but pretended he had gone rogue nonetheless.
Friday, Booker was pressed on the timeline. Rather than earning back a little bit of credibility and owning his folly, Booker continually insisted Sen. Cornyn was mean and that he was, in fact, Spartacus.
Sen. Cornyn is far more charitable than most on this matter:

And if you’re going to claim likeness to prominent historical figures, you best be right because Newt Gingrich is on the internet and he will own you:
Cory Booker should study history before he tries to use it. Calling a Senate publicity stunt his “Spartacus” moment was absurd.Spartacus was a gladiator slave who rebelled, lost,was crucified.Booker studied at Stanford, Oxford, Yale Law School. His only risk is being ridiculed.
