<p>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&rsquo;s <em>Hardball</em> host Chris Matthews was there Thursday night to compared former Speaker of the House John Boehner to <strong>&ldquo;Michael the Archangel&rdquo; &ldquo;with wings and sword&rdquo; </strong>versus Ted Cruz as<strong> &ldquo;one in the tail and cloven hooves.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Matthews dedicated his closing &ldquo;Let Me Finish&rdquo; segment to Boehner&rsquo;s Lucifer comments and couldn&rsquo;t help but spout off other possible alter egos for Cruz besides Lucifer: <strong>&ldquo;Senator Ted Cruz, Lucifer, the devil, Satan, Beelzebub, the very personage of evil, the leader of the underlife, the chief resident of hell, Lucifer.&rdquo;</strong></p>
