A Matter of Political Affiliation

When we read an article about politics we know to interpret, say “Senator Mitch McDonnell (R-KY)” as “Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky” or “Rep. Paul Ryan (R)” as “Republican Representative Paul Ryan.”

But now that we’ve learned about certain foreign interference in our presidential election, should we now be interpreting “Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)” as “Senator Ted Cruz, Russian Party member from Texas”?

And while we’re at it, isn’t it just deliciously ironic that after all these years during which Republicans labeled anyone to the left of Attila the Hun a dirty Commie, they’re now the favored party of those very dirty Commies?
