Read any Dr. Seuss lately? 

The chil­dren’s book au­thor is all the rage since Ted Cruz premiered Green Eggs and Ham dur­ing his mara­thon ‘fili­buster’ on the Sen­ate floor.

The com­edy shows can’t get enough of the Texas sen­at­or. It’s no won­der: his 21-hour speech— which in­cluded ref­er­ences to Nazi Ger­many and Ashton Kutcher, among oth­er tan­gen­tial sub­jects— provided ample am­muni­tion for the late-night cir­cuit.

…And you thought the Sen­ate couldn’t get any less pro­duct­ive.
