Former speaker John Boehner minced no words when talking about fellow Republican Ted Cruz, referring to him as “Lucifer in the flesh”, adding, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”
Now that we have the Smarmy and Snarly ticket of Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina, we can look forward to more attack ads like this one by the Cruz campaign attacking both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It is quite bizarre. It aims to be creepy but ends up comical.
For some reason, ‘Clinton’ and her strategists are shown meeting in some kind of a storage room. It would have been more appropriate to show them in some luxurious conference room at Goldman Sachs but since Cruz’s wife works for that same “great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money” (to borrow Matt Taibbi’s memorable description), that might have been awkward.
What I want to know is where the ad makers got hold of an actual slide projector. These once staples of the classroom have, like overhead projectors and slide rules, all but disappeared. On the plus side, the ‘Clinton’ campaign seems to have the advanced technology to produce a plain manila file folder that emits light when opened.
