Red knows that Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) won the Iowa Caucuses last night edging out billionaire Donald Trump by about 4%. Cruz is riding a wave of support from the evangelical base of the GOP. His entire campaign seems to be aimed at convincing everyone that he is among the most religious men on the planet and that only Ted can save our country – indeed perhaps humanity – from the evils of . . . well, anyone but Ted. This son of an immigrant come to save our country from immigrants. This smartest man in every room come to tell us exactly how smart he is.
Somehow Red just can’t get his head around the fact that 28% of people anywhere think that Cruz would be a good choice to lead their neighborhood property owners association much less this country. What is it that these voters like about Ted? His plan to raise their taxes while providing huge tax cuts for the wealthiest? His bellicose foreign policy plans that call for what would likely be an unending war in the Middle East – not that we don’t already have that thanks to the Bush family? His winning personality that has resulted in not a single one of his fellow Senators endorsing him? His blatant narcissism? His persistent lies on many topics? His frying bacon with an automatic weapon? His misleading and near fraudulent mailings to voters? His failure to follow simple campaign disclosure laws? His plans to lead the GOP over a cliff?
Please tell Red, he wants to know.
