Whenever a Republican lawmaker either leaves office, passes away, or trashes a conservative, you can bet that someone in the liberal media will be there to suddenly heap praise on them and MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was there Thursday night to compared former Speaker of the House John Boehner to “Michael the Archangel” “with wings and sword” versus Ted Cruz as “one in the tail and cloven hooves.”

Matthews dedicated his closing “Let Me Finish” segment to Boehner’s Lucifer comments and couldn’t help but spout off other possible alter egos for Cruz besides Lucifer: “Senator Ted Cruz, Lucifer, the devil, Satan, Beelzebub, the very personage of evil, the leader of the underlife, the chief resident of hell, Lucifer.”
