Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) paid a visit to Jay Leno last night and ripped the state of the "entrenched" federal government, blasted Obamacare as a "jobs killer", and clarified his "states rights" view of gay marriage.
Leno also asked him about his father, who has been in the news lately for his rabidly homophobic rants about gay people.
"My father's a pastor. He's a man of deep integrity. Some folks have decided to go after him because they want to take some shots at me."
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
